I have an S60 08 model just bought last week. It came without a SIM card and I have tried Virgin, Tesco and Vodaphone SIM's and none work, I just get the message "Please wait..." and nothing else.

The phone in your Volvo is not "Dual band" and so will only work with Voda & O2 (and anyone who "borrows" those networks such as Tesco).

Three won't work either as they only allow 3g phones on their network.

2001 model
Page 181 of handbook phone IS dual band. Dual band has nothing to do with the operator all operaters work on tri band systems now, but most phones are still only dual band. Mine works with any sim I stick in it.

Although mine doesn't respond, all the simcards I tested worked fine except for the 3 network with is 3g only and these phones require a 2g network.

Red face Telephone mystery

I have just bought a 2010 V70 estate.
There is the facility on the centre consul for a mobile phone dial pad but the menu says its not equipt with phone. If I can get this facility up and running it would be useful but I have no idea what is required. Does it need a wired phone or is it hands free. Where does the sim card go and do I needs a holder. I could do with a full explanation if anyone has time.
Many thanks in advance.

I think you may be talking pre-2010. The OP who bumped this thread is a bit lost (wrong section).

not really any help. However, our 2006 has never had any trouble reading a card from any company. Currently running a brand new O2 sim.
