Hello,

The sim tray of your phone or let me call it the sim reader on your iphone is worn out or bad that is why your iphone can not detect the sim card on the iphone, i advice you take the phone to any iphone service center to help replace the sim tray or sim reader on the iphone, and you will see that after the replacement of the sim reader on your iphone, your iphone will detect and read the sim.

Take care.

Hello,

Clean the Sim seat with cotton wool, and fix the Sim back into it. If that doesn't solve the problem, then it means the Sim card us damaged, you need to visit your service provider to give you another Sim card.

To confirm this, test the Sim card with another phone and likewise test the phone with another Sim.

Take care.

If phone unlocked with gevey sim can he read all the sim cards?


Yes, using gevey card it will read all the sim anywhere any operator. But using gevey is very difficult. If anyhow you turn off your cell phone then it will be very difficult for you to turn it on network again. It is a great hassle so i recommend you to permanently unlock it.

I am recommending a store that are expert in iphone unlocking.

www.guaranteedunlock.com

They will unlock it permanently and won't get relocked again.

Goodluck!!

My iphone 3Gs cannot read sim card, but it can read other simcard and the others, my simcard which cannot read by the iphone 3GS can be read by othe mobile phone. is the promblem in my iphone or the sim...


Actually, there is no problem. That only means, your iPhone is locked to certain sim carriers. If you want to use your sim on your iPhone, you need to jailbreak it and then unlock it. And I got all tips for you to do those stuff.

Jailbreak iOS 4.3.1

Problem over sim contacts


If you have an unblocked iphone and have put your old sim card in, then your iphone won't read the sim. All phone numbers are stored on the iphone not your sim.
Ive tried a few ways to read it but no success. Sorry.
