mmy samsung galaxy S4 says that my simcard is not working. there is no damage to the phone or simcard but it will not detect it
I just switched to rogers today, i have an unlocked samsung galaxy s4 on which i can use videotron and fido sim cards without any problem but when I put my new Rogers Sim card or any other Rogers SIM card, it does not detect it at all: No SIM card.
I tried to reboot several Times, to put a paper on top of the sim card without any luck.
Any idea would help.
Hi ! Did you find a solution ? I have the exact same problem. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 that I unlocked. I was with Telus. When I insert a Bell sim card, everything works, but the sim card from Rogers doesn't... It keeps saying, NO SIM CARD. When I scan the networks with my Telus sim card in, I can see those 4 networks : Telus, Bell, Videotron and EXT... I can't see Rogers network... I tried adding the Rogers APN, but no luck...
Hi Monin, I found a temporary solution:
First test is to reboot your phone by applying pressure just below the flash light at the back of the phone (where the SD card slot is). I was able to finally detect my rogers sim card for a little while but then it does not find it anymore but you stop the pressure and have to reboot.
Then, I opened the back of the phone, I cut a small piece of plastic from an old credit card and taped it where I had to make pressure so that the sim is detected.
This worked for me for sometime but then, the phone was getting very hot and rebooted too many times so I had to buy another phone when they were in promotion.
Thx for the fast reply. I tried to put pressure on the sim card tray, but no luck with that :S It's weird because my telus and my bell sim cards are detected without any problems... I guess it's time for me to get a new phone...
Same here, videotron and Fido sim cards worked without any problem, but evey rogers sim card were not detected.
I tried to make pressure several times without any luck until I found the right spot and timing.
Good luck with your problem, it is frustrating!
