    Default Random "No Sim Card" Icon and dropping signal randomly

    My phone randomly shows a "no sim card" icon after plugging into my computer.

    It has happened 3 times so far and it always happens when i plug my phone into my laptop just to charge it..

    does anyone know why this is happening? thanks

    Pull your sim and take it to Verizon, They will give you a new one for free..

    My old sim in my old Rezound did the same thing.....it was a bad sim. it happens some times.

    Most people with this issue are just reseating them themselves and don't report any issues after.

    +1 Mine was doing it every now and then and then constantly this past saturday. I just ejected the SIM and reseated it and havent had a problem since. Just make sure when you put the tray back in that its flush with the body of the phone.

    I got this error message. I went to the Verizon store. They replaced the SIM card at the no cost. That resolved the problem. I think my SIM card must have been defective.

    Good luck with the new one. I've had 6 total put in my phone and it still does it. So I went back to the Verizon fed up with problem he said he would send me refurb but it will probably do the same thing. I'm thinking about junking this phone....sorry just fed up with this issue.

    Sorry to break it to you guys, but its not the SIM. Its the phones. I'm on my second SIM. I had the error with the first SIM, got a new one, and have had it once with the new SIM. On the positive side, I haven't had a SIM error in months, but I have had it since getting a new SIM.

    Even after the recent update, I continued to experience the SIM card issue... I even began logging every instance..

    04-17-13 @ 1130
    04-19 @ 0845
    04-19 @ 2115
    04-20 @ 0945
    04-21 @ 2315
    04-22 @1030 & 1038.*

    At 1120hrs, 04-22-13, I broke down & applied 2 layers of clear scotch tape to the back of the SIM card and cleaned the contacts with 91% alcohol. Not a single issue since.

    Worked for me, just like many others.

    I experienced this issue again yesterday 4 times. I had my DNA replaced in January and had not seen any SIM issues since then. It is rather odd that a whole bunch of us started seeing this again in the last few days. The only way to workaround the problem was to remove/reseat the SIM card. I called Verizon and HTC is requiring them to replace the phone again with the last update pre-installed. I know that it is not going to make a difference, but the replacement phone is on its' way today. This will be my 3rd hardware replacement and I have gone through 5 SIM cards. I am going to demand that they replace this with a different model if it continues to occur.

    +1 for this. The SIM tray is not exactly the best. The tape seems to help.

    taking a pencil eraser to my sim card seems to help a bit. I got 2 weeks between failures. putting tape on the back of my sim card did nothing for me. I just took an eraser to my sim card again, yesterday.

    I've had my DNA for a month almost to the day and not a problem at all til yesterday. Has done it 4 times in the past 24 hrs. I just restarted the phone and it seems to work fine again.

    Is everyone going with this step or actually reseating the SIM??

    Awh, sorry to hear that Daniel :-( I'm thinking I might have to try my dangest to get a ONE if I keep having problems with this device. I heard from a very reliable source that the DNA is discontinued. So if that's the case, replacements could soon be scarce. Maybe I can talk my way into a ONE lol

    You know, I never thought of that. As soon as I hear people are getting "free" upgrades when they run out of DNA's I'm gonna hit the verizon store. If they try to give me an S3 I'm going to T-Mobile hahaha

    Hello Jennifer,ith
    I purchased a DNA Dec '12 but have suffered from dropsies and shattered the screen on original and one replacement. The second replacement I rcvd just before going out of the country (USA) last month untul mid August. Never had any issue with the ois beriginal and replacement but this 3rd unit is doing exactly as being described here. Before finding this board I watched a video on youtube and did as same as is suggested here. So far, so good. Hopefully it lasts since I am not comfortable with requesting a replacement be sent here to India and then have trouble activating it, etc. Other than this issue, the phone really performs and has a great screen. Good luck to all.

    WHAT? Can you let us know what your source for this info is? I've been waiting (and waiting, and waiting) for mid July to roll around so I could upgrade to the DNA. I'd be very interested to know if it is actually being discontinued. It would be a major bummer to upgrade to a phone that was discontinued right after upgrading.

    Don't worry, they're releasing the One on Verizon, which is a slight upgrade. (Which is probably why they're discontinuing the DNA.)

    I was more interested in the DNA than the One. The One has the metal case which precludes capacitive charging. I really wanted to get away from plugging in the dang cords for charging. I also have ZERO interest in BlinkFeed. I know you can make another screen your home screen on the One but you can't get rid of BlinkFeed. I don't do social networking - no Twitter or Facebook. I don't want a constant and intrusive update to things. If I want to know something I'll look it up myself. I don't want or need the "help" provided by BlinkFeed. To me, it's a big mark against the One.

    Yeah, and the plug cover on the DNA really encourages wireless charging :P I wouldn't worry too much about the software personally, since I would root anyway. But hey, these are good reasons. Go DNA! haha

    Jennifer, I really hope they do allow an upgrade BUT.......as you know I had so many issues they did offer me other phones, the Razr M and the LG Intuition. Not what I would call equal phones and certainly not an upgrade. I really didn't feel I could wait and try for the One and bought the Galaxy S4. Although I like the S4, if I was guaranteed a problem free DNA I'd go back.

    I'd scrape the oxide off of the copper contacts with a knife. Just scrape till its shiny. Its always worked for me even with batteries.
