Hi guys, I was all excited to get things going on my galaxy note but unfortunately it's not recognizing my sim card. I put in my att gophone sim card, prepaid unlimited $50 plan, and my note will not recognize it. When I insert it, I get an error saying "sim card crash" and in the top right i have some sort of notification that looks like a sim card with an exclamation point in the bottom right. When I go into setting>wireless and network> mobile networks in order to set up the APN settings it says "insert sim card, Insert sim card to access network services". When I insert the sim into my dumphone, it works fine. I saw another poster had a somewhat similar problem but apparently out of the box it worked fine. I got my phone from techno trading house for what its worth.

this might sound stupid, but have you inserted your sim in the right way?

when i first booted up mine, i accidentally inserted the sim in the wrong way because the samsung note takes sim cards in the opposite direction compared to my previous nokias and motorolas.

Check your sim card placement. I had the no sim card issue when I first got my note, checked my sim card placement and I had it in backwards. Turned it around and everything started working. Just a thought.

I'm assuming "just got an att sim" means you opted for a regular plan through att?
