Check SIM message

I have a Motorola 505 (L?) cell phone and the window displays a "check SIM" message. I can't make any calls. When I open the phone and push any button, the message switches to "emergency calls only." Help!

In the back of the phone

In the back of the phone (probably underneath the battery) there is a tiny card that looks like a camera memory card. This is known as the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card.



It's not uncommon for these to come loose after a while, or maybe there is a bad connection. Remove the SIM card and reinsert. After you turn on the phone, everything should be back to normal.
