    Default HTC One (M8) not recognizing SIM card

    My Sprint HTC M8 is not recognizing the nano SIM, I took it out and put it back in about 100 times, it still says no SIM card

    Try another SIM? It could be a bad SIM card, so consider trying that or taking the device to a Sprint store for a closer look.

    Make sure you have it in the correct way, the metal pins should be facing down toward the back of the phone

    I have the same issue, had the phone one day. Put the sim in 200 times and only twice did the phone recognise it. The sim can only go in one way so there is no chance of that. Took it back to the phone shop (in the UK) and it is a faulty unit. I suggest you do the same.

    I had the same problem, here is how I resolved it. Took it to the Verizon store, swapped sims, then swapped sim trays, activated it then swapped sim trays back and haven't had a problem since.

    Mines started working randomly after awhile, but when I turned my phone off and then on it would stop work

    I got resolved by stick a cello tape just on SIM card backside, then placed in sim case, this additional SIM thickness fix to gets better contact.
    Its worked for me. So Good Luck.....

    It could be a bad contact or wrong cut.

    I can't remember where I saw it (I know it was on the web, but not any of the forum sites), but I read that the m8 can fry some sims. I had to have mine replaced by VZW (it kept saying my sim was password locked, and VZW couldn't reset the password). After they replaced it everything worked just fine.
