You need a new sim card . It may be damaged or marked up to the point where the pins in the card reader cant make a good connection. Get a new card and have them move her account to the new sim . If the phone works fine with other cards then its the sim thats the problem. Hope this helps

that's the thing they put a new sim card in it also they have no clue whats going on


try again someone didnt do something right when they switched it over



What size is the SIM, is it a micro and you are using an adapter?

Either way, try cutting to size a bit of paper and place it on the non contact side of the SIM card and insert the card+ paper into the card reader. Initially leave it longer so that it can be easily removed if it makes no difference.

The idea is to increase the pressure that the SIM card places on the reader contacts to make a good connection.


thanks guys for the help i convinced them that it was there fault they sending me a new note 5
