Default Unregistered Sim

At least once a day I go to use my Galaxy ace and just under the time(top right hand corner) it has: "Unregistered Sim" !!!!!
My phone wont work. Take out the battery, reinstall the battery and everything is good.
I shouldn't have to keep doing this.
Can someone tell me what is going on and how to fix it.
Thank you

I have found this information on the internet i do not have a galaxy ace and do not know if this will be helpful be read through this information i have provide and be careful if it sounds tricky then find another way if your uncomfortable using those methods. i am just giving you ideas i hope this helps and enjoy.



I would say the solution i used it could be useful

press the base bottom more the 3 sec

the during 90 sec you have to accomplish registration via the phone

1-menu
2-scroll down till advanced set
3- scroll till registration then 'regest base' then chose the handset No.
4. the pin No. is 0000

then ok

I hope this can help
IF YOUR HANDSET WAS WORKING AND THEN STOPPED WITH "UNREGISTERED":
If lowercase unregistered is in main display and a reg. appears under the left soft key:
Press the left soft key below REG. and then press and HOLD the button on the top of the base station until the two indicator lights on top of the base station turn off. Wait until handset signals with beeps and registered. You are done

THIS IS FOR FRESH OUT OF THE BOX REGISTRATION OF UNREGISTERED HANDSET
Press REG Register shall be highlighted.
Scroll to Register. Press Select.
Enter the system PIN (Default: 0000). Use
CLEAR to correct typing errors.
Press ENTER to confirm.
Your handset starts searching for the base.
Press and HOLD the round button on top of the base unit until the two
indications turn off.
If registration is successful, the signal icon

I don't think any of that is for me.
I got phone new about 6 months ago and it has worked fine up till a few weeks ago.
Like I said in my post, at least once a day it shows UNREGISTERED SIM all in capitals where it normally would read my carriers name.
I remove the battery and put it back and phone is okay for the day.
Do I have a problem with the SIM card?
Thanks

Hello wfeere. I have to admit that I am wondering why you have not taken the device with the SIM errors and had it looked at by techs at the store/carrier where it was purchased. It is obviously a SIM related issue, whether it's actually the card itself or a poor connection at the point of contacts.

You can first try using rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab to clean off the area where the contacts are, etc.
