    SIM Card Error at random times

    Advertisement



    I've been getting "SIM Card Error" on my phone, which prohibits me from making/receiving calls/texts and more. It happens randomly and I would have to turn off my phone for a few seconds and turning it back on for it to work again. Is anyone else having this problem? If so, anyone have a solution for this?

    I am having the same issue.

    not sure what is causing this. Does anyone have any ideas, especially on how to fix it?

    Ive had this before its when its been in my pocket and i have to run somewhere or it gets hit against a wall. Usually some short of shock or abuse to it will knock mine loose. I simply reclamp the card down and turn my phone on

    Thanks for the advice but I've done that a few times and the problem still happens. Are the clamps loose or is the best way to just try to avoid bumping the phone?

    Yea, it either the mechanism is loose or your SIM card is going bad.

    Could be that the SIM card door is loose. I had that problem on my first Pearl. I could never get the thing to stay shut LOL

    every time that happens, its always the sim card door. never seems to want to lock. i guess the best solution would be to not drop your phone? whenever it falls thats when the door pops out. poor design i guess
