    So I was showing off my phone to my co-workers.. in short, the sim card was removed by one of them. (It's a really dumb story to elaborate how this happened.)

    Now my phone is asking for the sim even though it's inserted. I'm getting a "Insert MetroPCS sim" notification and my service is gone.

    I called MetroPCS support and they said it's something that cannot be done over the phone and can be brought to an authorized dealer, apparently its a simple fix that requires re-syncing.

    Dose anyone know how to do this? or do I really have to go to an authorized dealer.

    *sigh.. you'd think the red letters marked "DO NOT REMOVE" might give people the hint..

    Please help..

    It was removed while the phone was on wasnt it? I removed mine with it off and nothing happened. Probably wiped the profile off it.

    Try this
    The service programming code is
    Open your dialer and put this in
    ##626*
    then put,
    587846
    that will take you to the service programming menu.

    Haha! it works now. It was on backwards.. When I put it back on after it was removed I thought the "Do not remove" part had to be facing out.. Thanks nuttmeg.

    @ Shinyside thanks for the tip ;) I don't think you can remove the sim while phone is on because the battery is in the way.

    OMFG thank you guys! I was having signal/data problems here in Tampa and for some reason I thought removing the SIM card would help. I also entered it into the slot backwards... Gah, that SIM card is a troll though, why would 'Do Not Remove' be on the part that doesn't show smh lol. Wow. Good night.

    I swear I was about to go to T-Mobile and get that SG3 lol.
