I just tried to copy photos from my phone to my computer via Bluetooth and discovered that the two devices were mysteriously no longer paired. I tried to re-pair them but it was unsuccessful. I turned my phone off, and when I turn it back on I get "Insert correct SIM card". I've removed and reinserted the battery and XT postpaid SIM but get the same error.

Any suggestions? It looks like I may need to pay a visit to the Telecom shop on my way home, but does anyone have any ideas?

Edit: I tried a coworker's Vodafone SIM and I get the same error.

Update: I left the phone turned off for a while and tried it again. It now "boots" to the idle screen but reports that there is no coverage (I normally get 5 bars). The colours are all screwed up and I can't access it via Bluetooth (I was hoping to copy my photos while I had the chance).

If the phone has gone faulty, just take out the micro card in the side of it, they don't need that for a warrenty claim.. your pics should be stored on the micro card btw :)

I took the phone into the local shop on the way home. They've confirmed that it's dead and I'll be getting a new one, but apparently they need to send it away for replacement and can't do it in-store. I have a Telecom R6 loan phone in the meantime.

I didn't even think about the card, however I believe that the pics are stored on the internal memory (that's where they show up under Bluetooth).
