Does not detects SIM card

When I switch on my Cell phone it shows 'Insert SIM'. I've tried with some other sim cards also, and its showing the same message. Sometimes it works after a restart, but within few minutes, it shows the same message again. Please help me to solve this problem. I'll be very thankful if anybody provides me a good solution.
Thanking you.

Insert sim card diplays on the phone when i have already inserted sim the same sim card is working on other phones i tried with othr good sim cards the same problem exist

Clean the area of the SIM card detection pins and make sure that the card was inserted into the phone in the correct direction. If there is no detection with any card then the phone motherboard is defective but if the phone works with some card of a particular service provider then the phone is locked to that network-- in which case it will show and ask for unlocking code.

My samsung Duos gt-b5722 not showing any network. when i insert sim it shows full signal but when i dial a number it shows emergency call only. i cant send any message. when i call on my no. it says its...

Try other sim cards in the phone to be sure the problem is not from the sim. When you are sure the problem is not from the sim, try to reset the phones's factory settings. If it still does not work, then flash the phone.
If the fault was detected to be a sim fault, then get another line of the same network, and call your mobile service operators.
Hope this was helpful?

The SIM card may not be making proper electrical contact. Remove the SIM card, clean the contacts on the SIM card and on the cell phone with alcohol then replace the SIM card in the cell phone.

the pins that touch the sim card could be lose or the sim card might be bad, try pulling the pins on the phone up carefully just a little so its a little more thighter to inser the sim card, then try again, also try another sim card if it doesn't help.
