No SIM card issue

Hi all,

Am running a Galaxy S5 (klte) which I'd been using CM13 on without problem. I moved over to Lineage at the weekend - full factory reset, clear cache/Dalvik, use latest TWRP to install Lineage and re-install everything. So Saturday, Sunday, Monday everything fine. Then switch the phone off overnight (as I had done on the other nights) and switch back on this morning. The phone boots fine, no sign of any issues - but I don't get my usual "Enter your SIM PIN" screen, it boots straight to the desktop.

Can't access anything to do with phone functions and the signal icon sits as a triangle but hollow, a bit like when you get zero signal strength... it's not the SIM card with a line through it (no SIM card) icon, which is odd. Trying to access settings to select a network, or go for auto network detection draws a blank (can't access SIM card/network).

I've gone back into TWRP and cleared the cache and Dalvik again and the problem persists. I took the latest nightly (2017-02-13) and flashed that hoping it might fix it, but also no joy.

Any ideas without me having to factory reset the device and re-install everything again (pain!)

Thanks,

I had this before as well. I was able to fix it using the correct modem and bootloader software. After this, it worked fine until I did a restore with TWRP. All restored but the modem was not working. I discovered a ADB command to easily fix it but I lost the bookmark for this page. ATM I am looking for this command. Something like "ADB SHELL /AUTO ....."


If you find it, please post it here. I do as well.

Regards, Gopher.

Solved not solved

Well I've been playing around a bit more testing to find exactly what it is causing this issue.

It's system profiles. I use these extensively with triggers so my phone connects to my car, goes on vibrate at work etc. With system profiles active (whole menu turned on) the issue occurs. With the profiles off, it's resolved. It does matter how the profiles are configured (I tested with just 1 profile and all settings on "do not change").

So this is something for the Lineage OS team to look at and fix in a later build because as it stands system profiles are broken, at least for klte. Does anyone else have a different experience on their device and what device are you using?

In my case I only had to turn off the whole System Profiles general button.

Same for me

I have done exactly as the first post and my sim is also not working now when it was fine. I have a Galaxy s3 i9305 lte. It's just says no sim. I have Lineage 14.1 and have updated to the latest nightly. Any ideas how to get my sim working again?

On my S4 Mini LTE the profiles seem to sometimes stop the home button (long press) pulling up last apps used even though the button works fine as two quick presses gives me split screen. I think it's automotive profile that activates when it connects to my car Bluetooth that is the cause, but not sure as haven't had chance to pull a log.

Same here on Motorola Moto E XT1021, tried getting CyanogenMod 13, but all the mirrors are down and I don't feel like getting Android from not trusted source.

It's definitely a problem with the ROM because everything works fine on different ROMs, but on Lineage there is no SIM card detection at all and nothing seems to help.

I'm trying to get older Lineage ROM hoping it will work.

Consider removing and reassigning the PIN

I have done exactly as the first post and my sim is also not working now when it was fine. I have a Galaxy s3 i9305 lte. It's just says no sim. I have Lineage 14.1 and have updated to the latest nightly. Any ideas how to get my sim working again?
What software was on the phone you first locked your SIM in?
Sometimes a SIM will respond to a config file that might be absent when you flash a new ROM.

If you can put your SIM in a different device that recognizes it, use that device to disable the PIN.
Then power down and eject it.

Then, re-insert it into the problem device to see if it works.
If it does, re-assign a PIN using that device.

Hey. Yeah that sounds like a good thing to try although I removed Lineage and have a stock KitKat rom now and works faultlessly. Still have root access and the s3 doesn't need a later version really. Tbh I would have been happy staying on kk if it wasn't for the tech industry moving forward with their software development! How dare they! :D

The trick with disabling the profiles works nicely on my Xperia T with the CM based Resurrection Remix ROM, android version 7.1.2.
XT has no main Profiles button, so i deleted all the profiles manually and restarted the phone. Now trying to find out which profile caused the problem.
.....
Made several new profiles, restarted the phone after each one, but the problem didn't turn back. I think it has issues only with the built-in profiles.
Thanks for the tip man!:good:

Single Sim Working Dual Sim Not

In my case when I remove both the sims and put in only one at a time regardless which slot or which sim it works but when I put two in together it doesn't, driving me to believe that the lineage is not supporting dual sim and is failing hence when both are inserted.

I am running Lineage OS 15 on my S7, and other than a few glitches, the SIM card issue is the only significant problem I have experienced. I have looked through the settings, and I found out that my baseband version is "Unknown." I tried flashing some files, in an attempt to fix it, but I still have no luck. I hope someone fixes this problem.

Thanks,


On the latest Lineage build, I was having the issue with it not reading my SIM, so here's what I did:
-clean install of lineageOS (wipe, install rom, install gapps, and install Kernel)
It wouldn't read my SIM at this point, so I
-factory reset
-installed LG G3 Tekcafe VS985-49A_stock (I'm sure any rom would have worked though)
-installed Lineage over top of this rom and wallah! everything works great!

It's gapps...

Hola!

I am experiencing the same issue and I relate it to the gapps.
The sim works perfectly fine with normal lineage OS. With gapps the sim doesn't work. Reproduced 3 times.

My Galaxy S5 somehow detects a Sim Card which is not even inserted. The signal strength showed at the screen is the same as the wifi strength, but never at zero. But if I try to call someone it says no sim card detected. Of course boy there isn't. The problem is that inserting the sim card changes nothing. Same Problem. I switched from lineage to the original firmware back... HELP
