"No Sim" error message in a new iPhone!?!?!?

Hi I just got this thing a couple of days ago and after using it a few times it now shows "No Sim" error message. I haven't touched anything, it has not been dropped or something like that. Any suggestions?

Fold a small piece of paper like 1/2 a chewing gum wrapper and slide it in the SIM slot with the memory chip. The problem is the memory chip is not making contact with the pins.

Sim card error apears on my sim

Hi, hold down the power switch at the top and the main selection button at the bottom. After a few seconds a new screen should come up that allows for shutdown should you slide the slider to the right. DO NOT SLIDE THE POWER OFF. Keep holding the two buttons down. Wait until the silver apple logo comes on the screen. At this point you may release the two buttons. Continue to wait while the iPhone reboots. Once the iPhone finishes booting the "No Sim" message should be gone and you should see bars again. No new sim card or reactivation required!

I ugraded my iphone(3G) from frimware 2.1.1 to 3.0.1 then when i started my iphone the itunes it is telling me that the SIM cards is not supportted

Hi. I do this all day.

there are a few things you can try:

1- Restore it to factory settings and when its done dont restore from the back up instead set up as new iPhone and then Sync your info, contacts, Apps, music ect...

2-get a new sim card from your carrier

3-update itunes to 9.0.1 and update iPhone to 3.1 if all else fails and wait for DEV team to finialize 3.1 jailbreak

Iphone 3g 8gb Officially unlocked sim error problem

the new sim card is connected with having an iphone account. when you say it is officially unlocked.
does this mean that AT&T unlocked your phone?
what i think your saying is that if you have 2 sim cards, one that is in use and the other is a spare you cannot use both. at the same time.
the sims are standalone, to use a spare sim it has to be activated by the carrier, thus disabling your original sim.
when you change sims you will need to reboot the phone that will not change.

I have Iphone clone and I get ''no service'' when my AT+T sim card

I also had purchased an Iphone clone not to long ago. My service provider was AT&T. 90% of the time when my SIM card was inserted the phone would read "emergency mode". I would have no service, I wouldn't be able to receive or send any calls or text messages. I talked to AT&T representatives who would solve the problem for short periods of time but never gave me a permanent fix. I immediately sent the phone back to the seller. I have been doing a lot of research on these Iphone clones and I have seen quite a few times that people have problems in this area, not being able to have service. Also, what you have purchased and think is a genuine Iphone very well may not be. Many models of these Iphone clones now have the Apple symbol on the back and even have the Apple logo displayed on the screen when they start up. This being the case, you may very well have purchased a fake Iphone which would lead to problems with your service provider. I'm not sure how to fix the problem, and for this I apologize because I know how frustrating it is not to have service. But, I can tell you that your best bet may be to return the phone and try something else. All I've heard is that the genuine Iphone is the best way to go. Because these clones are made by independent manufacturers and not sold through AT&T, even though they may seem nice, many people have constant problems with service. Good luck, and if you find an alternative solution please let me know!

"error sending message" in my sms text message

This seems to be a recurring problem that I have discovered was a problem with both the original iPhone as well as the iPhone 3g. I just had this happen to me 3 days into owning the phone and the "solution" set forth to me by the apple tech at AT&T was to go into settings and place the phone on airplane mode for a couple minutes and switch it back. This surprisingly worked for me albeit for a matter of minutes. I was then instructed to do a Network reset also through settings under the "Reset" category at the bottom. Although it didn't immediately resolve the problem, after I manually entered my friend's number each time I texted for about 4 texts I have been able to text uninterrupted so far. Not sure this is a permanent fix yet but it's worth a shot for you guys as well.

Motorola rokr e8 error message

not even a MASTER RESET will resolve this issue most of the time. the only way to fix it is to perform a MASTER CLEAR. Before doing a master clear, make sure you save all contacts to your sim card and images, videos, etc to your memory card.

Insert an unlocked???

Try clicking the 'Restore' button on the Summary page in iTunes, when connected to a PC. If that doesn't work, you'll have to take the phone back to an Apple store.
