Hope the op can replicate your results but it didn't work for me. Maybe the phone gods just hate me.

Turns out it did not work for me like I thought. Went a full week without an error and it started again. The phone gods hate both of us. It appears to be a common issue from the posts I've been reading.

After one full week of without phone service due to no sim card found (rebooting no longer worked), I had to unroot and allow the OTA update to MK2 FW. My sim card issue immediately went away.

They gave me a new sim card.

Just talked to a coworker that had the same phone he too is having this issue. I am just going to send to Samsung. They approved the RMA. I am not sure but with so many having this issue could it be a software glitch?

Just got the phone back from Samsung. They sent me the same phone back and said they replaced the SIM tray.

Everything is working fine now.

Just received the second phone back and they say they replaced the phone this time. I am not having issues and has been a day now with the new phone.

Just want to see if it is still unlocked as I have the same serial number and IMEI.
