SOURCE: My phone keeps saying insert sim but the SIM card is already in

If you're able try the SIM in another phone to verify it's working.

One of my older phones didn't hold the SIM card very tightly so I put 4-5 small pieces of paper behind it laying flat to keep the connection tight.

Why does my Unlocked SG5 keep saying my SIM Cards been removed & make me restart it? SIM has been in SG5 for 3wks, no issues. Then 3dys ago it started saying the SIM is removed. Please Help!

The sgs5 is an awful phone with many unsolved bugs. You may try a factory reset andor/ getting a new sim card.

If neither work, sometimes rusty forms on the sim reader's pins so you can buy a sheet of fine sandpaper, cut a strip with the width of the SIM card and long enough so that you can insert the strip of paper with the rough side facing the pins and be able to pull it out. Then being careful slide the sand paper in and out a few times, this will scrape any material which can be interfering with the appropriate contact between each pin and each section of the card. This also applies to any kind of electrical contact basically.

Hope it works.

SIM card not installed

Same thing happened to me. This happens when the phone does not get reception. When that happens the phone goes into no service and says "sim card not installed". The solution is to take out the sim card from your iphone put it in another phone and make a phone call. Then take the sim card out and put it back in the iphone and make a call. At first you will see it will still say no service, but when it says calling you will see that after a while (6 or 7 seconds) the bars come up and it will display your carrier name.

Cuts off during call

Alot of times this is when the battery or SIM card for whatever reason gets loose inside and for a second or two loses contact. Believe me, I see it everyday. What happens is sometimes when the factory sends the battery new with phone in the box, it is a bit to small. The door or sleeve that holds the SIM card in (for phones that take the sim cards)do not actually hold the SIM card in-they only hold it partially in-the battery does the rest. So if the battery comes loose, alot of times so does the SIM card. Try this, take your SIM card out, along with the battery, look for anything that might be loose. Then put the SIM card in, then take a piece of paper underneath the battery. This will help the battery keep contact, and is just a test to see if this solves your problem.
