So I got myself HTC One X about a month ago and I started noticing this problem from last week. In short words, I lose phone service and my phone gives me "no sim card" sign occasionally every day or even twice a day. The phone goes back to normal after a reboot or two.
I have not taken it to store yet, since I doubt it is a hardware problem - never dropped it once and simple reboot solves the problem.
For the next 60 seconds, I will conduct a test of my emergency broadcast equipment. AAAAHHHHH!!! Had this been a real emergency, the scream you just heard would be followed by lots more just like it. This concludes My test of my emergency broadcast equipment.
I'm having this issue at the moment. It first started a few days after i got the phone, 2 weeks ago. Had not seen it since. Now it keeps appearing every minute or so. It goes back and forth from "no sim card" to normal. I keep rebooting but it doesn't fix the problem. Any possible fixes or suggestions would help. Thank you
Just put a piece of sticky tape on the back of the sim card, about 3 - 5 layers will do. It thickens it up and wedges it in place. If the problem persists just remove it and take the handset back to your provider. However I found the sim card is very loose inside the One X+ handset, probably a rubbish design.
Check out HTC One X No SIM Error Message Fix for some tips and solutions in order to get this annoying issue resolved. A lot of things can cause this problem on smartphones but it seems to be something more frequent on the One X.
This issue is annoying too. No SIM = No Service = No Fun
Bought a Desire S for my wife yesterday (second hand) and was promised everything was working fine. Got home and put her existing SIM in the phone but got the no card error message - I was fuming - the card was fine as I checked it in 3 other phones. Spent a bit of time on internet looking for a solution and tried all the ideas out there - cleaning, packing the card, tape, etc. but none of them worked.
Came across a video showing how to take the phone apart to fix the SIM cradle but thought it a little drastic so I did this ...
Got a fine needle and gently prised the gold contacts in the SIM holder up slightly - they were depressed too much - one actually below the level of the plastic SIM cradle - put the SIM card back in and the phone jumped into life!
Just be careful when you prise the contacts not to damage anything underneath or break the contacts - this will fix the issue (unless the issue is the SIM card itself.)
My HTC One X drop from 6 feet, and landed screen flat into polished concrete, causing the 'No Sim' error. After reading this post, I put several layers of tape into the back of the sim card, and it worked. God is good!
Thanks for the tip!
I'm going to say poor design on this one. I've had my sim card replaced 3 times. And my phone has been replaced twice now. I'm still getting the same sim card issue. I've had my 3rd device for 2 weeks now and it just did it again this morning. Time to change to a different model.
I used to sell at&t phones and can hounistly tell you I see this issue with this phone every day HTC is an infurior company I dont talk bad about our phones but HTC has burned me one to many times! Get a Samsung!
How prevalent is this issue? I really like the One X+ and want to go over to android after jumping from Iphone to Windows 8. I like both the One X+ and the galaxy s3, but the One X+ feels better in my hand. However, if this is a widespread issue then I'll have to go with the S3.
The HTC One X is the first quad-core Android smartphone, not only by HTC but from any manufacturer. It'll have a Tegra 3 chipset inside by NVIDIA alongside 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel HD camera with flash, front-facing camera, a 4.7 inch 720p di... Read More
