    Within the first week of having the DNA (Got it opening day in November) my sim card kept failing. The only way I knew it was happening was from a lack of receiving calls/texts and small error message with an "x" in the notification bar. Restarting the phone would solve the problem temporarily but it would recur. Verizon swapped out the sim card and things were fine until a week ago when it started happening again. They swapped it out again and things were fine until 15 minutes ago when it happened AGAIN. Hmm, maybe I have a lemon?

    I had that happen somewhat frequently at one point. What I found helped is shutting the phone down and popping out the sim card, making sure it's seated correctly in the tray, then putting the tray back in, while applying just enough pressure to get it in all the way. (don't press super hard on it after it stops). See if that helps your problem...

    This is what I did the first time I noticed this happening to me. Haven't had a problem for almost a week straight now..

    I had a similar problems back in December...Verizon swapped the sim card once, then I had connectivity and Bluetooth problems. They decided something was wrong with the phone, so they replaced it, and I have had no problems since.
