    Hi guys,
    I hope anybody of you have an idea.....

    I brought my old HP Veer back to life after haven't used it for some years. I had to idea to sell the phone ( I had switched already for a long time to BlackBerry) and made a reset. And now the Veer does not see any sim-card any more. It only says: Looking for sim - SOS calls only. I tried different sim-cards - but no change.

    What can I do?

    Thanks for help

    Well, i wonder if maybe doctoring would fix the issue

    1. What phone company are the SIM cards for? Is the phone, carrier locked?

    2. Have the SIM cards worked in other phones?

    3. Is there any physical damage to the SIM card pins or slot?

    Yeah, I was thinking about the slot - they are fragile.

    I think there was a thread where someone fixed / replaced the SIM holder in a Pre3...

    The thing is that the op hints that it started after the reset , with the old sim still inserted / not removed. "if" this is correct, it's not an hw issue but a software issue ( cannot work 1 minute before, and stop 1 later after pressing reset, unless is a software issue )

    It's not clear that the SIM wasn't removed. If this is a revived phone, then there is the possibility that the SIM has been 'cancelled' by the network or has been doing duty in another handset and was moved to the Veer either before or after the reset was performed.

    The described symptoms don't seem to fit, but there is also the possibility of needing to bypass activation: https://pivotce.com/2015/06/24/tip-h...ss-activation/
