Troubleshooting Problem Possible causes Possible solutions

Call-related problems

SIM card error SIM card malfunction or damage.

Take the SIM card to your service provider for testing.

The SIM card is inserted improperly.

Insert the SIM card properly.

Dirt or dust on the SIM cards metal contacts.

Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the SIM cards metal contacts.

Poor reception The network signal is too weak at your current location, for example, in a basement or near a tall building. Wireless transmissions can not effectively reach it.

Move to a location where you can receive proper network signal.

The network is busy at the current time (for example, during peak times, there may be too much network traffic to handle additional calls).

Avoid using the phone at such times, or try again after waiting a short time.

You are too far away from a base station for your service provider.

You can request a service area map from your service provider.

Troubleshooting 101

Shortened standby time The length of standby time is affected by your service providers system configuration. The same phone used with different service providers' systems does not have the same length of standby time.

If you are located in an area where the network signal is weak, temporarily turn off your phone.

The battery is depleted. In high-temperature environments, battery life will be shortened.

Use a new battery.

If you are not able to connect to the network, the phone will continue to send out signals as it attempts to locate a base station. Doing this consumes battery power and consequently shortens standby time.

Change your location to one where the network is accessible, or temporarily turn off your phone.
