Emergency Calls Only, or no sim card

Just recently I have been getting messages saying no sim card when the sim card is definitely in the phone, over the past four or five days I now get messages saying emergency calls only. Both of theses messages are intermittent and sometimes my phone even works!. Any suggestions as to what the problem is.

Re: Emergency Calls Only, or no sim card

Hi Pup59,

 

I realise this may be stating the obvious but have you tried removing the SIM (perhaps giving the gold bit a gentle wipe) then reinsert it and restart your phone?

If you have access to another Virgin or unlocked mobile perhaps you could also try your SIM in that and see if it works, to narrow down any fault to either the device or SIM.

Thanks AxexKid, yes have already tried giving the sim a wipe and that doesn't seem to make much difference. Unfortunately I don't have access to another phone with a nano sim so can't try it out elsewhere.

If you have a local virgin store pop in ask them to put one of their Sims in and see if it the sim or phone
