Notsure Insert SIM Card error?

Hey guys, I keep getting a pop up every now and then that tells me to insert a valid sim. This is after using it, it being fine, it'll just pop up, sometimes i can restart the phone and it works. Othertimes it reboots and reboots and reboots and still nothing, just keeps telling me to put a sim card in.

I've fixed it once instantly by reloading the modem firmware, and it came back straight away, thought my problem was solved, then it came back the next day, this time holding down the on button while it was booting up, forcing it to get half way through a boot, then reboot again, twice, got it back, however im sure thats not good for the phone in its own right.

Anyone seen this? im wondering if i should just take it back? It seems driver based on some level since it fails randomly and works again, and reloading the firmware the other day worked. As if the driver hangs, or stops responding. My next step would be to reload the whole firmware of the phone.

Anyone have any ideas?

Cheers in advance.

Take it back, this sounds like a faulty Phone.

Mine started doing this today, going to get a new sim card tomorrow to see if that fixes the problem.
If you got yours fixed how did you manage it ?

I have this happening as well. It was infrequent at first but today it has done it at least once an hour. It is in cdma mode but also has the issue in lte evdo cdma mode. It seems to happen when idle as it is yet to happen while it's awake in my hands. I'm on sprint so there's no SIM slot; apologies if I posted in the waiting area.
