Why won't my phone recognize my sim card?
When I turn on the phone it asks for the sim card, but I've already inserted it. I tried using a different sim card and my phone didn't read the other one either. What else can I try?
Sometimes the pins in the phone (little gold prongs) get a little dirty. Try opening the phone to see the sim contacts and check for dirt/flattened/broken pins etc. If they are too flat you can try lifting them up (gently as they are fragile) with a small toothpick/tool. Then, you can try cleaning them with an electronics cleaner (something high in alcohol content so won't leave residue). Let us know if this helps
This can happen for many reasons and there are a few things you can try:
1)Go to settings>general> reset > reset network settings.
2) Use compressed air to clean out the SIM port.
3)Try another SIM card.
4) Open up your phone and lift the gold prongs so there is better contact.
5)Clean the gold prongs with rubbing alcohol.
6) Contact your phone carrier, it might be something on their end.

Same thing happened with me. I had just cleaned the area where the sim is inserted and then i inserted the sim again and it got detected.
Actually this happens to me a lot. If you take out the sim card, wipe it with a little rubbing alc and let it dry. Then put it back in, it should work!
There are three possibilities available.
1.Check your sim whether it's properly inserted or not
2.There may be a problem in your sim card so try another one.
3.Your mobile locked to particular network provider.

try checking ur springs
my husband had this problem with his phone, it turned out to be because he had pushed the card in too far. He thought it was one of those ones with a return spring like a memory card. lol i pulled it out flush with the lip of the battery line, and it worked just fine. :D
hi i cant use others sim card into my tablet. when i starting use tm choose your number. i can't insert other sims. please help me
I have the same problem with the sim card on tmobile with my galaxy note 4. The phone will tell me it can't detect the sim card and restart the phone, I'll have to do it two times to get it to see the card, probably getting a new sim card from your carrier will fix it, it's free if you're on the jump on the tmobile, I accidentally locked myself out of my sim card once by entering the pin wrong 3 times, they replaced it free.

According to other threads I've found the LG G3 particularly experiences this very issue which seems to be a manufacturing problem with the "seating" of the SIM card, but I have to say I'm about at my wits end with THIS PHONE!! I've already replaced the micro doc (charging port) on my dime (and NO, I'm not one to be rough on my phones and yank out the cord) and forgo the warranted NOT thinking clearly but wanting it fixed out of desperation, I sent it out thru Office Max, NOW THIS just started!! What gives??!
this is an old thread but i had googled my problem tonight when my wife's phone was giving her "sim card not found" error and boy was she freaking out
She explained that she had taken out her SD card, and somehow in doing so snagged the sim card with it, because they are right on top of each other, and both fell out, and when she put the sim back in, it gave her that error.
Perplexed, i watched a youtube video, read some forums, then i got to looking at her phone at the slot and noticed there's 4 little springs, and the 3rd one over wasnt quite propped up like the others, so she took a teeny tiny needle thing, and moved it up, we slid her sim back in, restarted the phone and lo and behold we were back in business! yay go me
So sometimes the simplest things....
I can't get my Verizon Sims prepaid to get service to even make a phone all what do I do
My SIM at times would not be available. Tried cleaning it several times and checking the pins etc. Yesterday I could not get it recognised. I then wondered if the SIM was actually going in too far - it was. I lined (LG G3) the trailing edge level with the end of the slot - and lo and behold---joy joy!
My phone didn't dectect my Ufone sim but it it detecting all other sims but not mine I had applied all the solutions but its not working... What should I do , its been a week the problem is same.
For me the solution was to make my phone only use 3g, not 4g. Lucked into this solution, phone was crashing repeatedly if the SIM was inserted.
Go to the secret android network screen by dialing: *#*#4636#*#*
Then set the network connection to be wcdma only for 3g.
Hope this helps someone who had my problem.
