Sony Ericsson :: C510 Inactive SIM / Insert SIM Error
Aug 20, 2010
I've bought a SE c510 recently. Maybe a month ago. All was working fine until a couple of days ago, it started giving me error message. First, it will say Inactive Sim. Then, it will turn itself on, and give me this error message: "Insert Sim or View Demo Video first" It takes more than a couple of on/off remove battery cycles before it functions again. My Sim is definitely not inactive. Cause At times that I don't get this error, it works. I have also updated to the latest firmware as of 06/27/10. I still get the errors. Is there s aolution to this? I have been using SE Phones for a long time now and I don't usually have issues like this.
I have a C510 Sony Ericsson Phone. I bought is about 7-8 months ago. Recenly it has started behaving a little weird. I couldn't figure out if it is a software problem or hardware problem. Some of the problems it is showing are:It is very slow. Actions take place after 5-10 seconds after pressing the keys. For example: To look for a name in PhoneBook, if I type 'R' after 5-10 seconds it will show names starting with 'R'. If I press the Dial button on some contact, the phone hangs (the screen also goes blank) until the other party picks up the phone.Sometimes the screen splits up in two identical sub-screens. Restarting the phone is the only options in this case.This is what I did to fix it:Formatted the memory card after backing up the essensital data (contacts and notes)When the above didn't work I did a Master Reset The phone got a little (very little) faster, But No significant improvement. This tells me that the problem is not software related. There is some problem in the hardware. Let me know what to do. today It showed a new problem: "While searching in the phone book If I have to look for a name say "Prashant", and to start with I press key '7' to type 'P', it types direclty the third letter on key '7' that is 'R'. And the name starting with 'R' show up. The same thing happened with every key (1 to 9). " I restarted the phone and it got back to normal. This is getting irritating. Tell me what can I do.
i live in aus and i have SE T715. im with 3. on prepaid. when i woke up today it said where the "3" symbol is meant to be "Inactive SIM". called 3 and they said your account isnt barred or anything and everything seems fine on our end. so i turned the phone off and turned it back on and wala it was back to normal again! the sim is only 1 month old! it hasnt said "inactive sim" since! weird.another thing is i couldnt make phone calls a couple of hours afterwards. the signal bar was on full but the "G" symbol in the top left hand corner disappeared and wasnt replaced with anything. so i turned my phone off and turned it back on and guess what? back to normal. it only did it that one time and same with the usim message only once. hasnt played up since! it just seems turning the phone off and turning it back on fixes it.there are three things that can be causing this 1:the sim card 2:the phone or 3: the network. what do you guys think.
I'm looking at replacing my creaky old K800i with a C510, but wondered if the C510 has a kind of joystick or if it's a D-pad "clicky button" arrangement? It's hard to tell from the videos and written reviews. I play a lot of games on my mobile and I like the feel of the joystick, so I was really hoping I could upgrade to another SE phone with joystick, but I guess they're falling out of favour (especially since many people had problems with the K800 joystick).
I bought a Sony Ericsson C510 before 7 months ago and now I confused with such a problem which always gave the message "Insert Sim or view demo" and "Inactive SIM" always. And it is already damaged to my SIM also (SIM was worked perfectly when I have this problem). So I bought a new SIM and insert it and again my phone gave me same error. But my new SIM is work properly in other phones now also. I already updated the firmware of the phone. But still it not detecting the SIM.
I had purchased Mobile Model # C510 on 13 June 2010. However, soon my mobile went dead and I submitted (Work order # SE310RT317708) this to Sony Ericsson Service Center (RT Outsourcing Services Ltd, Pune) on 7 Aug 2010. They informed me that there is some problem with the motherboard of the mobile and it need to be sent to the factory for replacement, for which they said it would take 15-20 days of time. However, now it is close to two months and till date I have not received my mobile. Upon repeated calling they just say it would be done in weeks time, dont know when that week would come. I also, called up your call center for the same (Ref # 88390486 and 88429925) and they said it would be done in a couple of days time, however, I have not received my mobile till date. My concern:Is Sony Erricsson so irresponsible towards its customers?
I have a C510 R1HA035. Since the last firmware update I have been experiencing a reduction in coverage i.e.the signal strength has reduced a lot. Also I found another bug.In the stand-by the alarm time with the symbol is shown on the bottom left.However,after calls,the call time is shown on bottom left and the alarm time goes above the date, and the logo overlaps the time.
I was using c510 for past 6 months. My network provider is vodafone. Recently I changed to postpaid connection from prepaid keeping the same number for that I got a new SIM. When I inserted the new SIM on switch on itself it is asking for phone lock code.I haven't kept any lock code for my phone till now. And when I searched in the net for the default code i got it as '0000'. But when I enter that it says wrong code.
Then I inserted my old SIM for that it is working but its inactive since I got new one. I checked the phone security settings under settings->general->security->Locks->phone protection->Protection so as to turn off that feature.It was shown 'Automatic' neither On or Off. And when I tried to change that to off its again asking for the lock code. And I am not able to use my phone now.
I have had my c510 in nine months now, and here this month it began too act weird.first it became very slow and after the screen started freezing so the only way the continue was to reboot the phone and now it also always have 2 sub screens.Anyone who knows what the problem could be?

I've been out of the phone modding scene for a while. Last I modded was my silly Moto E398 or something. So I was wondering if its possible to get my W810i have the 'Conversations' feature of the C510.
I have a sony C510.. I downloaded few themes of the internet last week and now my phone shows random colours and suddenly the display becomes reverse inverted, etc.. I tried running update service but it works fine only for a while, random colours pop out again! i deleted files also.
I also have an Sony Ericsson C510 with an application in it that threads SMS conversations so as you see your message then their message then your message and so on. This is the best new feature on a phone I've seen for ages. I have the W760i without this IM type feature. Is it possible to load this app to the 760 and if so where do I get it and go about putting it in?
I can't get my phone to start up. It is hanging at the Sony Ericsson screen with the black background. My big problem is that Three claim that it has water damage (it hasn't) and probably won't let me send it back to them to get it reflashed (I've no idea what this means but it solved a similar problem in the past). Furthermore, I can't get my computer to recognize the phone when I connect it. Is this the end?
