On a daily basis my phone will randomly tell me that there is no Sim card(btw I'm att of that makes any difrence) in the phone. The only way to fix the problem is to reboot the phone. Any ideas what's causing this? I tried flashing a different rom but to no avail. What should I do?

glad im not the only one.. i posted about this few weeks ago.. i tried going to att store and they wouldnt give me a new phone since it was the 16th day ( 14 day return policy).I thought it was still 30. I went thru warranty and they are sending me a new phone. just waiting for that to arrive.. still happens every once in awhile. annoying.

Happens to me too. Don't have to reboot though. Turning Airplane mode on and off does the trick. Every day or so I take it out and put it back in. Not sure if it helps but it makes me feel like it prolongs the issue.

Should i bring it into AT&T? If I do will they give me a new one even if I unlocked the boot loader?

Here's a summary of what I've learned, y'all correct me if I'm mistaken:
  • ATT sims only
  • Airplane mode and back - works as temporary fix
  • SOME report reseating the sim is a permenant fix
  • SOME report getting a new sim doesn't fix

Since this is happening to me daily now (maybe more I'm not noticing), I'm going to see what I can come up with. I just opened the tray and slid it back in with two pieces of paper backing the sim card (on the non-contact side of course), to see if by chance there is a problem with the physical connection of the sim, and if this can fix it. I'll keep you updated. I'm also going to see if I can get a new sim card from ATT.

Has anyone come up with any other solutions - or are we all dealing with this intermittently and just tolerating it?

===== UPDATE 12/14/2012 =====

5 Days now with perfect connection. Two sheets of paper thicker sim card works.

There is a few threads all about the same thing. I'm posting in this one because it's the highest on the list. I never had the issue before rooting. So I wonder of anyone can confirm this being an issue pre-root/pre-bootloader unlock? Just a thought

I'm pretty sure it was confirmed in one of the other threads that you can get this problem even is your not rooted on stock.

Ok, guys i have found a fix put a piece of paper and wedge it between the sim card and the tray at the top pretty much try to kill all the slack.

Update: haven't had my phone disconnect I would say this is a true fix, htc just needs to send everyone updated SIM trays
