    No SIM card installed error message in iPhone 5

    I got a shock when I was not able to operate my brand new iPhone 5. Constantly error messages of no SIM installed were flashing. On getting it checked, the supervisor stated that there is SIM installed inside the phone. I am worried as the error message continues to flash on my phone. Please suggest a way to get this fixed.

    Re: No SIM card installed error message in iPhone 5

    I guess you bought it from abroad and trying to use it with different sim. Few Iphones doesn'y allow other sim to used unless u legally go for iPhone retailer shop and ask for the pass code or illegally by jail breaking it doing jail break may void your warranty

    Re: No SIM card installed error message in iPhone 5

    Friend, first of all check which type of sim card is to be inserted in it.... Check wheather you have inserted in right way or not. If not then insert it in right way. If again you have problem then take out your sim card from slot. Clean the slot by blowing air. Then again insert sim card in right way.

    Re: No SIM card installed error message in iPhone 5

    Dear User..

    It is so unfortunate that you are not able to use your brand new I-phone and i know how it feels when we have such a brilliant device in hand and we are not at all able to access or use it.

    There can be various reason of the problem which is happening to you :-

    1. First of all check whether you got a New phone or not. There are thousands of fake public available in the market which resembles as it is to the new product so first of all check as it is the most important thing to check.

    2. This also happen when you put a sim card wrong so first of all remove your sim and try to insert it properly. You can take help from Google's Youtube so that you can see how to install the sim.

    3. If we buy a product directly from a foreign dealer then the product is assembled according to that country and if you want to access the device then you should check the compatibility.

    4. Do not try jailbreak for yours as this may kill the warranty of your device and it is recommended that you replace it or get it repaired from a authorized dealer.

    Hope in will help

    Cheers...!!!

    Dear friend....

    The problem is a common one:-

    >>It may be the malfunction of the sim hardware

    >>Or it may simply vanish out once you restart your device,

    >>If that doesn't help, go for reinsertion of your sim

    >>For that take your sim card tray out.

    >>Insert the hardware properly .

    >>The problem would surely get solved.

    >>But in case if it still poses some problem take it to nearest apple customer care unit.


    Hoping for quick recovery of your device.

    Re: No SIM card installed error message in iPhone 5

    Hi aspirant,

    You are receiving such error because:


    *Your phone is CDMA supported.
    *Your SIM is not activated yet.
    *You have not inserted the SIM properly.
    *You do not have the network coverage of the network you are pursuing

    Steps to avoid such problem:

    *Confirm the SIM supported by the mobile.
    *Then buy yourself a SIM according to its compatibility.
    *Insert the SIM properly to its socket keeping its yellow part upward.
    *Then Switch on the phone and check the network availability.
    *Then receive the call you will be getting.
    *Then give the details about yourself.
    *You will get your SIM activated permanently.

    ALL THE BEST

    This message usually comes when:-
