hi. first and foremost. im new to forums and i apologize if this is in the wrong place but any help would be appreciated.

i have a samsung galaxy note sgh-i717. it's at&t but ive been using it on t-mobile. everything was working fine up until earlier this week. i have not done ANY rooting or customizing at all but i keep getting no sim error. this error pops up randomly a couple times a day. i have a micro sim that i cut myself but i have that sim tray thing that holds it in place so im sure it isnt a matter of the sim card sliding out of place. but i just cant figure out why this is happening. can someone,.. anyone,, please help me!??

i had the same problem a few days ago. for my fix it was the radio software needed to be changed. might work for you too.

Some people have reported luck with just replacing the SIM card and memory card reader. That didn't work for me.

I ended up buying a used motherboard on eBay for about $80 and replaced the entire thing myself. Thankfully the modular construction of the Note makes it really easy - did it in under 1/2 an hour. Problem solved.

The only thing I stupidly forgot to do is pull is backup the internal hard drive... so I ended up having to put the old board back in and pull everything off of it and then switch the new board back again. *sigh*
