I just purchased a used Gravity-T669. The master reset has been done. I know what the pin number is.
When I insert my T-Mobile SIM card from my previous phone, a Nokia flip phone, I get the 'no sim mode' message on the Gravity. The sim works fine on the Nokia.
I then tried the SIM for my other phone, a Samsung SGH-A847, it also gives me the 'no sim mode' message on the Gravity.
Can anyone help? Is the phone bad, or am I using the wrong kind of sim? I looked on the tech specs for the Gravity, but it does not say what kind of sim I need. The ones I have are the correct size and fit perfectly. I am definitely inserting them correctly - gold-side down, with the slanted edge in the right place.
I am currently on the pay as you go plan.
Let me know if I can provide any additional info.
The only question i have for you is why would you purchase such an old phone
Yes the imei is probanly bad or the phone itself
You could get a new sim and try it
Sounds like the slot for the sim may be loose and a connection is not being made.
Try wedging something small on top of the sim to see if you can tighten the connection.
I used that phone for almost a year and it's a great phone for texting.
It is a great phone but very old
I tried wedging a couple layers of paper on top to give a tighter fit - still, I got the same message 'No sim mode'.
I then tried two additional Sims that I know are working, and they gave me the same error. I suspect that the phone may be broken. My next idea is to take it to a t-mobile store and have the employee there test it out.
rizzies: FYI, I got this phone off ebay for my middle-school child - so I wanted something cheap but effective for texting.
Sorry that it doesn't work. If you can't get the seller
to refund you lmk and I have a Gravity T that I won't use
and I can ship it to you. Just let me know.
Thanks for your very kind offer.
I took the phone to T-Mobile and the associate there tried 3 more sims with no luck. It was definitely broken.
The seller will refund me, but even so I would be interested in your offer of your old Gravity-T, if you are still willing. I have already bought 2 phones on eBay and both didn’t work out.
Of course I’ll be willing to pay for shipping and a fair price for the phone.
I don't have the charger for it but those can be found
for cheap on eBay. Let me make sure the battery will
charge and I will get back to you.
I sent you a request to send you a private message
and you're going to have to ok it. Just check your in box
for a notification.
It won't let me send you a private message so your going to have
to send me a message to make a connection stream with you.
