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 you still have no signal after that it's either a loose antenna cable or a broken logic board.

Go into your setting<General<Reset<Reset Network Settings   This should fix your problem if it does not then maybe your service provider is to blame, if not just faulty iPhone hardware. In that case you can take your phone into a Apple retail store with an appointment and get it swapped for  a new one.  ( as long as you are within your hardware warranty)

After restore my iPhone with iTunes it shows error like "The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported"


Unlock Cell Phones
Your cell phone may be locked to a particular cell phone provider and in this case it needs to be unlocked to use with a different cell phone service provider. To get the security code/restriction code to unlock the cell phone from the current cell phone provider so you can use the SIM card with a different phone provider, Please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r4049238-unlock_cell_phone If your phone provider does not help you then these WEB sites it provides security codes for a small price. http://www.mobileunlockstore.com/?gclid=CKDb2_y2558CFSlJagodxBkDHw http://www.mobileunlocksolutions.com/ http://www.superunlockcodes.com http://unlockcellphonecode.com/

IPhone 4s is coming up with invalid sim or no service


I just had the same problem. I used a paperclip to open and remove the sim card tray. I blew on the card and the opening to clear off any dust. After re-inserting the card, the device said "No SIM" for a moment then registered and regained service. I hope it helps!10_22_2013_4_27_57_pm.jpg

It shows no service when enters a sim card


No Service when you insert a sim card means one of two issues:

1.) You are inserting a Sim Card that is with a provider other than the one your phone is locked with.

2.) Your Sim Card has been rendered disabled by your provider, possibily for payment issues among other things. You need to speak with your provider in this case.

I hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

My iphone 2g has no sim card in it but it is stuck on the page where when i slide to unlock its only for an emergency call


It seems that your iPhone 2G is in need of activation. To accomplish this, there are 2 ways:
A. (With AT&T as your service provider)
1. If you do not already have an AT&T sim card, contact AT&T and ask for an AT&T sim card to activate service with them. Choose your plan and insert the sim card in the iPhone.
2. Connect the iPhone to iTunes and you will be prompted to follow a few steps to proceed with the activation process.
3. Sync your iPhone for the first time.
Once completed, you will have your iPhone activated and ready to use on the AT&T network.

B. (Without AT&T as your service provider)
1. You will need to download an application to jailbreak your iPhone. (This will essentially remove certain restrictions on your iPhone 2G that prevent you from utilizing your iPhone on another network, among other things).
2. Connect your iPhone to the computer and run your jailbreak application of choice.
Once completed, your iPhone 2G will be activated and jailbroken. The "emergency call" message will disappear, though you will be prompted with a "no sim card found" message until a sim card from AT&T (or another GSM carrier) is placed in the sim tray.

Try replacing you sim and if you still get the same error then it is a device issue. You will need to contact your service provider for replacement options!

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!

Logo itune and no servise


Hi there,

If the iPhone is brand new, it has to be activated using the iTunes software on the pc, plug the iPhone in and follow the guide.

as for the iPhone saying no service and insert SIM, the iPhone will only work with O2 (UK) and Verizon (USA) unless the phone is unlocked to be allowed for use by all carriers.

if you find out that the phone isnt unlocked you will need a SIM Card for either O2 or Verizon Depending on which country you're from !
