Apple iPhone ranks among the best phones you can buy right now. The Cupertino company has been working hard to enhance its iPhone models, expanding its functionality beyond just being able to make calls, send messages, and browse the web. You now can do a lot more things with your shiny iPhone ranging getting sport scores with Siri to capturing portrait selfies.
However, there are exceptions to everything and that’s no different with Apple iPhone. We have heard a lot of complaints from iPhone owners that their iPhone fails to detect SIM, preventing them from making and receiving phone calls.
If you are among those users who have been infected by the issue, we have a couple of solutions that help you fix “No Sim Card Installed” on your iPhone. Before we begin, make sure you now have a modern version of iOS installed on your phone.
How to fix “No Sim Card Installed” issue on your iPhone
Remove your SIM
Card and re-insert it
Before trying to do anything, try removing your SIM card and then re-insert it. To do this, you can use Apple Sim card remover tool. After that, you need to find where your SIM tray is located on your iPhone. On iPhone 4s or later, the SIM tray sits on the right side of iPhone.
Once you are done, remove your SIM card and put it back in. Make sure you have installed your SIM card in the correct orientation.
Enable/disable Airplane mode
If above-mentioned solution fails to work for you, simply turn on/off Airplane mode. If you now own an iPhone X, the method used to enable Airplane mode is slightly different than past iPhone models. All you need to do now is swipe down from the top right corner of the screen to open up Control Center and toggle on/off the switch.
Reboot your device
Rebooting may help you fix some annoying iPhone issues like app crashes or frozen keyboard. To restart your iPhone, press the Side button until you see the Power Off button. After that, press and hold the Side button again to boot up your device.
If you own an iPhone X, the process is different. You now need to press and hold the Side button and either of the Volume button at the same time and then swipe to power off. After that, press and hold the Side button to restart your iPhone.
Insert a new SIM card
If the problem still persists, the problem may be with your SIM card. To check if your Sim card still works fine, try inserting another SIM card. If your iPhone is able to detect SIM, it means your SIM card has some issues. To deal with the problem, you can contact your network provider.
If none of the above-mentioned solutions work, we recommend you bring your device to a local Apple store to get support.
