Random "insert SIM" message??
I have the SGII from the UK and now using it in America. The phone recently randomly says "insert SIM for network access" or something to that effect. Ill be in my basement on wifi, and then go upstairs and leave, turning off wifi, and it says that there is no network connection. I restart the phone and it is fine. It has also done it randomly while I am out and about too, not using the wifi, so I cant say that toggling wifi triggers it.
Like I said, a simple restart of the phone (no battery pull, no pulling out the SIM and reinstalling it) just restarting it makes it recognize the SIM. Does this mean it is not a hardware problem, but a software issue?
I had the phone on the Vodafone network in England for a year and never got this message. However, now on the AT&T network in Minnesota, USA, it has happened probably half a dozen times in the last two weeks.
I should note that I have rooted the phone, installed the Siyah ICS kernel version 4.1.4+, and installed a more US friendly modem.
Anyone else have this issue, or have any ideas on how to solve it??
Let me know if you need more information to help diagnose the issue as well!!
