SIM card not found


Android Enthusiast
I've been getting this message lately. Seems like when I leave an area where there was no or little service, like in a basement of a concrete building or a parking garage. I have to power off and back on to get service again. Which means I need to wait about two or three minutes for the phone to reboot. Is this common or just me?

Since May 10, 2016 , Verizon has an update that purports to fix the No SIM Card message:

Current Software Update Benefits
Software Version: MMB29K.N920VVRU2BPD4

This software update brings the latest Android™ security patches, a fix to false "No SIM card detected" error messages and improves audio routing for incoming video and voice calls.

New SIM card detection software fixes false "No SIM card detected" pop-up notifications.

You can now answer video calls as just a voice call, and when you do, call audio is routed to the earpiece by default.
