How come yours isn't in warranty anymore? I thought they came with a 2 year warranty?

It's a common issue, you could try cleaning the contacts on the SIM Card, see if that makes a difference. If that doesn't work, I've heard of people placing a piece of paper next to the card to keep it in place. I can't recommend doing that though, I'd rather get the problem sorted properly....

A friend of mine was having similar issues with hers and asked me to take a look. I noticed on her handset the SIM/SD Card cover didn't sit flush with the rest of the phone; there was a tiny gap big enough to slip a piece of card through. She's since got an Otterbox Commuter case which clamps quite tightly to the phone and she's not getting the problem any more. I don't know if it's coincidental?
