One of the strange errors that Android users face is SIM card related. Some users encounter the ‘SIM Not Provisioned’ error on their Android phones and that means telephony isn’t possible. That stops mobile connectivity for calls and data connection.
While you can always use Wi-Fi Calling, sometimes you may have to rely solely on the mobile network. So to help you resume taking calls, we bring you some working solutions to fix the ‘No SIM Card’ error on Android.
How to fix for “No SIM card” error on Android
1. Re-insert SIM CARD
Starting with some basic solutions, you should first eject and re-insert your SIM again into your Android phone. Ensure that the card has been placed correctly on the SIM tray. Eject the SIM tray and insert it again to check if this problem is resolved on your Android phone.
2. Check SIM CARD damage
Another reason you see this error on your Android is that your SIM probably has some scratches due to multiple insertions. This can prevent your SIM from being read properly. If your SIM card has lots of scratches, we suggest getting a new one from your Mobile Network Operator.
3. Enable and disable Airplane mode
Airplane Mode will instantly disconnect all the wireless networks, like Mobile Data, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth on your Android. You can try to enable and disable the Airplane Mode to check if that solves the problem.
4. Switch to Auto network mode
You can also let your Android phone automatically select your Mobile Network based on your current location. This should also help in removing the error.
5. Update access point name
An Access Point Name (APN) helps provide all the necessary details for your Android phone to connect to Mobile Data. You can update the name of your Access Point on your Android phone based on your Carrier to check if the problem is solved.
6. Update Android version
The last solution we recommend is updating the version of Android on your phone. This should remove the bugs or glitches in the current version causing this issue.
7. Reboot or Shut Down Your Phone
If what’s causing your SIM card error is a software issue, sometimes a simple reboot is all it takes to fix the problem.
