N9 Can Not Detect the Sim Card

N9 Can Not Detect the Sim Card

Hi Guys,


I have N9 which was dead due to some reasons, I just gave to Nokia Care and they have reinstalled the software and returned to me.


I insereted my microsim and it didn't detected, they Nokia people used their sim card and that worked. I just bought another new sim card and put it in, it worked let's say 2 hours but now again showing the icon of "No Sim Card". I tried restarting, removing sim and inserting again etc...but till now no Luck.


I am extremely angry as I paid a huge some for this device and it didn't work for me. I just bought it 2 weeks back.


Any Idea what could be the problem, I am going to sue the mfs if they are not going to give me a new device or money back.

Re: N9 Can Not Detect the Sim Card

If it stops recognizing the sim card after a while it could be due to wear and tear, but since it's new and you have tried a new sim card I would say it's obvious that there is a hardware fault with the device. Could be the contacts reading the sim card.

Get it replaced or take it back for repair. They should be helpful fixing this.

Hope you get it sorted and you become a happy camper as I am - so far:smileyhappy:

Re: N9 Can Not Detect the Sim Card

Sounds like you may need to try re-installing device software, but can't remember whether standalone Nokia Software Updater requires a valid SIM or not in which case you would need to use Nokia's command line "flasher" instead.
