It’s Alive!!! No, not Frankenstein..
My Sony Ericsson Z610i is still alive! Thank God I don’t have to buy a replacement.
Apparently, I just need a new sim card. I went to Globe SM Annex branch to have it replaced because I wanted to retain my number. It didn’t cost much– only P50 and voila! My phone is in perfect working order.
Sis also had hers replaced because she was having an “insert sim” problem.
