Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
After a weekend with no charge my Iphone finally died on sunday night, 5 minutes i was texting and everything was working fine. When i went to plug my now dead phone into my wall charger, it should up with alert "restore needed Iphone cannot make or receive calls. Restore from iTunes. www.apple.com/support" When i went to connect to my itunes my phone does not show up, only a bar saying waiting for Iphone, then a pop up saying "Iphone cannot activater your Iphone because the sim card is not inserted or Sim Pin is required" there is more saying how to reconnect. Restarting my iphone while connected only causes that message to occur again and again, i have gotten a new sim card from AT&T, but i am unable to restore my iphone from itunes. Also tried other sim cards in phone to no avail. Please Help
Another way to restore it would be to turn the device off, then hold down the power button and plug it into your cpu still holding the home button and it should show up in itunes

Well first of, there is your warranty, but if your Apple store rejects it for some reason, there is both an iPhone Repair Guide and a third party iPhone Repair Service. Sometimes is helps to upgrade to the latest firmware version, but if it still doesn't read sim after that it's either a loose pin of the sim-card slot or a broken logic board.
