The SIM card may not be seated properly. Pop the SIM card out, reseat it in the tray, and put it back in.

If this does not fix the problem, you may either have a bad SIM card (sometimes they go bad for no good reason) or the SIM card reader inside the phone may be defective. AT&T can provide you with a new SIM. If that doesn't fix it, you may want to send the phone in to Apple for repair.

    Try dialing



    *#306#



    If it says error processing request, backspace everything and dial 0.



    This should work.

How do I install my sims card into my iphone 3g?


On the top of the phone there is a small hole next to the headphone jack. Find a paper clip and bend it so that the paperclip is straight. Then insert the paperclip into the hold next to the headphone jack and push lightly until the SIM card try slides out. Then insert your SIM cart into the tray and then put the tray back into the phone.

How to insert sim card 3G


To insert the SIM card into the iPhone 3G you first have to remove the SIM tray from the top of the phone, located near the power button. Use the SIM tray removal tool that came with the phone, or alternatively a paperclip. Push into the small hole and gently pull the paperclip back out the hole, the tray will come with it. Insert your SIM into the tray the correct way round and put the tray with SIM back into the slot. Hope this helps!

Apple iphone.where abouts do i put my sim card in the iphone?


Use the supplied tool or a straightened out paper clip to eject the sim tray in the top of the phone. There is a tiny round hole in the top of the phone that you gently push the tool(or paper clip) into to eject the sim tray. Load your sim card and slide it back in and you're done!

Good luck,
