Default Insert Sim error after inserting the sim

Hello guys.. how are you? I am new on this forum.. I have a problem with my Galaxy s4. When I insert the sim, after that it again demands for the sim. I don't know how to solve this problem. White signals are present near the battery but I am unable to use the service of sms and calls. Any solution related to this problem will be appreciated. Thanks!

The SIM itself could be bad.

Have you tried going to T Mobile and getting a replacement SIM?

Do you know anyone else with a T Mobile phone who could lend you their SIM for 2 minutes to test it? If you get the same results with another SIM the phone is the problem. If you don't, the SIM card itself is the problem.

Are you rooted? What ROM are you running?

If it's the stock unrooted ROM I'd say don't mess with it yourself. Go right to a T Mobile store and tell them to give you a new SIM.
Do you want insanely better battery drain when your phone is idle? Check out this thread!

I second that. I would also check to see if the SIM is in backwards. Someone may have just cut the micro SIM wrong as well. Good luck. :thumbup:

I have tried all the other sims, but there is the same error... I think that there is SIm-jacket problem.. It is destroyed as far as I think.. I should go for a change of sim card reader..
