    Thank you, i have had a look at those links but i still dont understand what this error message actually means :thinking:

    does this mean that the error is to do with the handset rather then my network provider or my sim? sorry, its probly me being really dumb but i dont understand all the technical talk i need a guide for dummys lol :)

    Thank you :eek:

    If I understand what is discussed in the links there is an incompatibility issue not between your phone and the SIM card... but between the GSM radio in your phone and the carrier. If your phone were rooted the solution might be to install a different version of the radios firmware. Otherwise the logical way to resolve it seems like it would be for the carrier to provide you a different phone.
