You iPhone simcard may just have been jostled loose. The sim card sits in a tray, accessible using a paper clip. Try removing it and replacing it, that may help.

Is there a SIM card in the phone, isn't it?
If so try to extract the SIM card and clean gold contacts with electronic circuit cleaner or GENTLY rub the contacts with a pencil rubber.

You have to insert a sim card to your phone so you can make calls.
Using a needle or the sim ejector tool, open the sim card slot and then insert your sim card there.

At the top of the iPhone you will see a small hole. Use a paperclip to push in the hole and the sim card try will pop out.

Put your sim card in the tray and put back in the iPhone

SOURCE: my iphone 3Gs cannot read

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

Unlock the iPhone

I cant use any sim to my iphone


Hello

Purchase a phone and data service plan for your iPhone through AT&T. This can be done in person at an AT&T store, Apple store or over the phone.

Straighten out one end of a paperclip and insert it into the little hole at the top of your iPhone. This will pop out the SIM card holder. Place the SIM card into the holder and reinsert it into the iPhone.

Connect the iPhone USB cable to your computer and phone. This should automatically open iTunes. If it does not, open iTunes manually.

Fill out the online form. You will be asked for your personal information as well as for the serial number of your iPhone.

Sync your iPhone with iTunes and your SIM card will be activated.

I just bought a iphone 3gs and i'm not with att. It's asking me for a sim which i dont have. Do i need it unlock before I can use tmobile. I cant even get in the phone without att sim card.


What are you doing with a phone without a connection? A SIM is a must for the phone to boot and function. Even a dead SIM would do. But SIM has to be in it. So contact the service provider and get a connection (and SIM). Unlocking may not be required as it is a Quad and 3G phone with all the frequencies.
