No SIM card - error on phone multiple times a day

Joining in

No sim error message. 
Rest handset - looks for #sim. Sometimes connects to disconnect later.

Drains  battery while looking to connect. 
I open the sim slot and close. Reset. Then I’m good for a couple hours. 
repeat above steps at least twice. 

Started yesterday. 

Currently has failed to find a sim for the last hour. Looks like I need a #newsim card and for it to have the same number for work please.

Hi Londonkiwi

Thanks for posting. Sorry to hear of this. Can you try the SIM in an alternative handset? If it does the same, it's the SIM that is the issue and we can replace it 🙂
