i ran into a similar problem last month. long story short, your device is exhibiting classic signs that your main flex cable is loose/cracked/broken.

i had mine replaced, now its good as new.

heres a thread to help some more:

Insert another SIM card, different operators.
I have visited do hard-resets
I different firmware.
Pierced different radio, spl.
Nothing helps. What do I do?

Hi all,

I have a similar problem on a brand new ZTE Blade .
Can anyone with a blade please make a picture of two sides of the sim socket with the sim left out?
Because for my model it seems some of the sim pins are broken off.
I would like to compare.

So it might be this issue for others too: I had a micro sim with a holder and my moms replacing it might have broken off some of the pins

For those who have a sd card unreadable - change your flex cable you can get it online which I have done cost about USD15 excluding shipping.

For those who have a sim card not reading - change your sim card socket cost less than USD10 Excluding shipping which I bought online.

And I have both spare.Becareful to ask for new ones If not like my experience I get a sample or used one which the sd card slot doesn't work. Get a reliable company's.Now what I need is a keypad for my kaiser.
