    Yeah I had that too this morning around 11. I was able to make it go away and male a call so I just figured it was some fluke. Weird we both had out on the same day.

    There's an article about AT&T and T-Mobile sharing the data network on the east coast because of hurricane Sandy. Might be part of that.

    I have the same exact problem with my HTC One X. It happens intermittently and when it does I can't receive texts, emails, calls, etc. but I don't know it because it doesn't really show until I try to call or text. Then what I have to do is go and click on airplane mode and click it back off, and then it says 'preparing SIM card' and goes back to normal for a while. I haven't figured out what makes this happens. It happens almost every other day. I've been dealing with this since I got the phone in July of 2012. Please help!

    Too bad it NOT only HTC, I have a LG G3 and mine has been doing this for a while now. I have talked to AT&T over and over and over and the only thing I get from them is let me send you another phone. I had this issue with my HTC One (x3), Galaxy S5 (x1), Galaxy S5 active (x1) and LG G3 (x3) so this issue has been going on for a long time. I have had AT&T for almost 2 years now and nothing but issues with them. I have changed out my SIM card god only knows how many times, with NO resolution. I have spent countless hours on the phone with AT&T tech support and all I get is I have no clue why that is happening and I have never heard of that before. We have no knowledge of this happening, which I know is BS.

    I am to the point where I am fed up with AT&T and their garbage Tech support and customer service. They have done NOTHING to try and keep me as a customer and they have done NOTHING to fix the errors I am getting.

    If anyone can offer a solution please let me know.

    Thanks

    Change your phone to band 4 it might be your phone is trying to contact cell towers that arent from your isp. If your on tmobile in dallas tx its band 4 and sometimes 20. It might be diffrent for each city but these are most likely the bands for tmobile. Look up at&ts.. Hope it help your situation it helped mine.

    Hello. I am having the same problem on my Android HTC 626 and AT&T, who is unfortunately my provider, is not able to fix the problem. They have told me turn the phone off for 20 seconds then turn it on which I have already tried before calling them. I have uninstalled apps and cleaned data from the phone. Now I'm waiting for a representative to call me back yet not holding my breath on it. Has anyone else had this issue and if so, how were you able to correct it? Thank you.

    Welcome to Android Central! What makes you say that? Does this have anything to do with the subject of this thread? If not, please create a new thread with your question.

    I had the problem for quite a while, on a Moto G, and I seem to have fixed it - at least it has not played up for 3 days, whereas lately it happened several times per day.

    I found that my phone was set to G2. Changing it to G3 and rebooting did the trick (it does not support G4).

    I have no idea what caused the change to G2, I assume it's possible that I did it, but I cannot remember doing so, nor can I imagine why I would have. Finger trouble perhaps?

    I have a similar HTC but it's the desire 626s . I was having this exact problem yesterday and didn't understand what was going on so I called my carrier (Cricket) and told them my situation and suggested one of the cell towers that my phone "pings" to is down and after a couple minutes they figure out it was. So after confirming my identity and account they just switched the tower my phone was trying to hold on to and now it works. Hope that helps
