That's crazy

Yeah. I think it's network issue. How many days did it happen?

At least 3 days of weirdness for me. I'm now back to getting amazing battery life.

I've been having an issue lately where the Sim card becomes undetectable and I lose all network access til I eject the Sim card and re-insert it. Very annoying and dangerous while driving. It just happened while I was writing this post in fact.

I am uncertain as to why this is happening... I just took a look at the Sim card and noticed it had some smudges on it possibly from the initial install but I did drop the phone once and am wondering if it impacted the Sim card area and it's now fubared... I dunno, hopefully wiping it down good will prevent any future instances but... We'll see. I just put on my tempered glass protector so if I have to get a replacement I'll be pretty unhappy.

Follow up: I did have the issue again. I think it's a connection issue with the sim. I took the tray out, physically bent it just a little to angle the tray DOWN in an attempt to improve the contact of the sim with the phone. It seems to have worked as I haven't had an issue since.

The tray is made of a very durable metal so bending it is very hard. The bend I made is not noticeable, but I notice that when inserted it sits slightly different along the edge. That tiny bit of extra pressure connecting the phone with the sim seems to have corrected it.

Preparing sim card
Hey folks, I just thought I would share my experience even tho my M8 is stock on T-Mobile. I started to randomly get the "preparing sim card" message, often times when downloading multiple updates from Google Play. I read thru all the forums and tried taking out the sim, cleaning it, and putting a thin layer of tape on the top so that it fits more securely in the sim tray slot. This helped for a while and then the problem returned. After reading further forum posts, I disabled the "My.T-Mobile" app and other T-mo related apps; so far this has seemed to fix the issue. Try as I might I have not been able to get the error again (hope I am not jixing myself) I know you guys are Verizon but that they have similar apps... It may be worth a try to disable them and see. I love the phone but the error was really buggin me. Hope this may help someone.
