my iPhone se has probably done it 9 or 10 times if I had to guess in almost the year of owning the phone

my 7+ has done it once or twice, replaced ATT sim at store hope it fixes it.

but if it doesn't, not sure ill swap my SE anyways its on 10.2 and jailbroken and as long as it works most of the time and with a re-seating fixes it, ill live/deal

Not the same device but I have a samsung tab s 8.4 it randomly "sim removed" in use (on wifi) i dont use 3g/4g much.

When it does spit it out have to restart the device.

had 4 sims from EE, still did it so pulled sim out and only put in when use 3g/4g.
Not figured out if sim or device as data sim not work in a phone.

Thanks!

We'll see like I said I guess don't wanna play swap hell anyways.

And jail broken on 10.2 with good screen and build. As long as the radio doesn't crap out all together.

Hoping a new sim addressed it

What's weird is when it did it with SE normally wasn't long after inserting sim and it working for a little on old sim.

I had that happen to me once in a while on my old iPhone 6+. Normally when it occurred, I'd have to restart the phone. I don't think it's the sim.

If it works most of the time should i be sweating anything?e if it pops up, it's when sim swapping between iPhones and pops up within 20 min of seating the SIM card in there. Maybe a bad fit everyon once in a while/wear?

I'm assuming not but now in paranoid device mode haha

Then again, i cant go stock. Stock and potentially more problems does me no good vs jail broken

No need to go stock. Like I said, it's more to do with the network than the sim card itself. Swapping sims won't eliminate the problem. Personally I wouldn't sweat it unless it's happening constantly, and when it does, just turn it off and back on again.

Can u elaborate on more to do with network? Because it happens most often in extremely low signal areas if memory serves me
Right

Surely the network would give you 'no service' on the screen if it was a problem rather than 'no sim'

I've never experienced this 'no sim' problem on any of my iPhones, and considering you've had the same problem with 2 difference phones now I would definitely be looking at asking your network for a replacement SIM card.
Hopefully this will fix the problem

Cheers

stop buying mini SIMs and hand cutting them to nano size.
your original post has the reason: reinsertion fixes the problem.
