Default [Q] Sim Card not found

I have been using the Korean LG G3 for a while with my AT&T sim card and I did not have any problems up till now. I have pulled the sim card out and put it back it multiple times now and it will still not be recognized. Does anybody have any ideas on what I should do? Thanks in advance!

Try getting a new sim card, and go from there. The issue could be that your sim card is old, or your phone does like it anymore for whatever reason. Alternatively you could try the same sim in another phone if that's an option.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have actually already switched the sim card and it is working on my other phone. So I am pretty sure something is wrong with my phone not the sim card. I have also reset my phone one time. Still nothing. Any Ideas?

You could back it up and do a hard reset this isn't ideal, but it usually fixes things.

Just hard reset it and it is still not working. I think it might be a hardware problem.

Are your pins inside damaged?

Check the slow where you put your sim card into and see if any don't look like they are contacting the card. I wouldn't mess with them, because they are fragile just look.

I looked at the pins and I'm guessing those are the ones in the top of the slot. It seems like two pins to the very right are not touching the card.

I have the same problem in my skandinavian (international (unlocked)) i think it has something to do with the boot speed(fast boot) because i got it to work when i backed my phone up and it rebooted but it always happens again when you just pull your battery out when the device is still on i factory reseted and it fixed it self permanently
