You should try cleaning the spokes on your sim card reader and your sim card. When you put it back in your phone make shour it is nice and snug. If its not snug in there good get a piece of paper and rip a part off and fold it. Put it on your sim card and place it in your phone. If the problem still acours you either have a software problome (not likely) or you have a faulty sim card reader. If you meed a new phone I recamend the blue branded phone on amazon

Chosen Solution

A simple solution/work around to this issue involves placing a small piece of tape or paper behind your phone's SIM card and sliding it into place as normal, don't force it, it should slide in smoothly with no extra force needed. If done correctly, this may make your SIM card fit more snug into the SIM card tray and enhance the SIM card's connection.

Hi,

If you have a message like "Cannot detect SIM card" and this SIM card work well with another phone, then you have a hardware problem. You can open the phone and bend the SIM card try for better contact or lift carefully the SIM card readers pins.

But this operation is not easy.

Regards.

I have a HTC lever and I run on the 4g LTE network and my sim was having trouble staying connected 10 times a day or more.

I searched this site and several others for the solution for this annoying problem.

I solved this problem with 2 layers or transparent tape on the back of the sim card. Be sure to try this if your provider can't help.

Thanks members of ifixit.

Hi Paresh,

This means that there is some issue with the Sim Slot in your phone, get it checked by service center if under warranty or from a local shop if the warranty is expired.. They will have to replace the Sim slot

maybe your sim slot is broken. Send your phone to service centre to change it

For me it was required both to ad a tape to back of the sim, clearing the cached data and rebooting. Problem solved. I don't know which of these steps actually solved the problem.
