    Sim Card not working after Accidently putting Micro SD card in Sim card slot?

    I accidentally put my Micro SD in the SIM slot

    I managed to get it out, by taking it apart. However now when I put my SIM in, the phone detects there is a SIM in there, as it says "rebooting as SIM detected" but it doesn't connect to the network.

    The SIM works fine in another phone.

    I've opened it up again, all the pins look ok, its pressed in so it "clicks" into place but still doesn't work.


    Anyone help please, otherwise the phone is goosed

    Why were you trying to be Specialist of your Android phone?If think you made mistake.
    Always remember that under back side cover that place is only for SIM card not for memory card.
    Never try to open any internal of your phone unless you have full knowledge.I suggest you to take your phone to service centre there they will tell you about the problem.

    Might be your sim card has been damaged by the pins of the memory card slot so you have to replace it

    hello friend
    dear there is no need to insert micro SD card in andriod it can damage your sim card slot anyway
    i think during inserting micro Sd card you have damaged your sim card slot or may you have damaged your sim card itself just cross check it with different phone and sim card
    in both case you have to replace it you cant anything else


    thank you

    Hello,

    You might broke some of your pins when to try to put your SD card in the sim SLOT.
    Or it might get enlarged.

    IF you are in warranty then you are lucky. There are no apps to fix the hardware though.
    :P

    Hi friend,
    Due to the effect of not placed your accidental reason, it might be possible that the pins of the sim card slots got damaged because of inserting sd card into the sim card slot. According to my opinion you must have to reach to the nearest service center branch to solve the problem.

    Hello

    I think the sim card is damaged not the slot.

    Try using another simcard and check if it works or not. Else check your phone out at a service center.

    If the sim card is damaged then just replace it with another one from the same provider with the same number.

    Thanks

    hi there,in my opinion due to your mistake putting your SIM in the sd card slot.there`s the DATA covering on the SIM which might have got damaged because of which your phone is not detecting your SIM.Just goto the service operator of the SIM.ask them what you had done to it.and they will give you a new sim with the data of previous sim restored....
