SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: SIM card not supported in itunes

what you need to do is put your iphone in recovery mode then wait until itunes reconizes your iphone. it should say itunes has detected a iphone in recovery mode choose restore and that should take care of the problem, (if you backed up your iphone b4 you updated it) and if that doesnt work your still in luck because the dev team put out a new jail for 2.2.1 n lower try jailbreaking it using quickpwn hope this helps

SOURCE: No SIM card installed

I too have had the "no sim card installed message. What has always worked for me is to go into settings and put the phone into airplane mode for about ten seconds and then switch back to regular mode which causes the phone to reconnect to the ATT network. The sim message goes away. This is also a good fix for when your phone isn't connecting to 3G or showing an "E" instead of 3G.

SOURCE: iPhone SIM Failure

The phone is locked to Apple and needs a Security code to unlock it.
When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for “Security unlocking code”.

Hi i have a samsung SCH-W339 mobile the problem is i have inserted many sim cards but it displays limited service instead of displaying the sim name and i cant make outgoing calls neither i recieve...


1. Your sim card is not in the right position. Take out your battery and your sim card. Make sure it is in the right position. Also make sure no dust or dirt where the sim card goes. Put the sim card back in your phone and battery. Turn it on. See if the insert sim card goes away.

2. If it goes not, then you will need a new sim card. Go to your local service provider store to get a new one.

We insert sim card in cellphone, even though the cell phone dispaly "please insert sim card"


It seems that your cell phone is having trouble reading the SIM card. You have two options. First you can attempt to clean the SIM contacts on your device. To do this simply apply a small amount of alcohol to a Q-tip and gently rub over the gold contacts where the sim card normally goes, this will help to remove any dirt build up and provide a better connection. Second, contact your service provider and request a new SIM card. Sometimes SIM cards can go bad similar to a memory card failing. A new SIM card maybe all you need.

Smartchip rejected error


Turn off the phone. Take the battery and Sim Card out. Make sure there is no dust or dirt of where the Sim Card goes. Blow air (from your mouth) of where the Sim Card goes. Sometimes rubbing a soft pencil eraser on the Sim Card contact points can help. Then place the Sim Card back in the phone. Make sure it is in the right position; copper contacts facing downward. Put the battery back in your phone. Turn it on, and see if the smartchip rejected goes away.

If not you may need to contact your Phone Provider’s Tech Support to troubleshoot and confirm that you may need a PUK reset code to register or you may need a new Sim Card, as they do fail from time to time.

Iphone not reading my AT&T sim card when it's inserted


It could well be just a bad SIM card. I'd just drop into your nearest AT&T and ask them for a new one.

I get a no sim message even though sim card is installed. only happened recently. this is not a new sim, i have been using this optus sim card for the last 4 years.


sim cards do fail sometimes , try a new sim card.
try your sim in another phone .
another possibility is dirt in the charging point / data cable connection.

No sims card


There are two possible reasons why this problem is happening. (1) Either there is dirt of some sort blocking your sim card to your phone. (2) Or....The clip that holds the sim card in place has moved or wasn't installed correctly and is not make the proper connection with the pins. Otherwise I would just take the phone back to the service provider and explain what is happening. I'm pretty sure that they will first want to try a new sim card, or another sim card. Hopefully that fails and you get a brand new phone. Hope this helps.
