Sim card not recognized

Hi. Some day ago my ipad2 wifi+3G (european) stopped to recognize the sim card. I tried everything, iTunes reset, dfu reset, removing sim card, activating and deactivating airplane mode. Nothing...the sim card is ok on my phone so seems to be a hardware related issue and I'm out of warranty since march 1st (%^%%!!).

There's something I can do myself? Thanks!!

Michele

It happened the same to me on my ipad 2 3g (and the warranty expired two months ago!!!!!!!!! ) The wifi mode is still working but the ipad is not recognizing the SIM card and it appears "No SIM".

Apple is not settling it and they offer me to change the whole ipad, paying like 270€! for another ipad 2 (not new, but repaired from others..).

I'm so angry!!!!!!!

There is a solution to the fix but it involves taking it apart and soldering. Not sure if you have the skills

Look at the picture and check those pins for continuity using a multimeter. Once you find the line that's broken you have to solder a jumper wire directly to the test point. Make sure you isolate the wire so that it doesn't short at all.

From what I've seen the red line is usually broken but check them all to be sure.

I'm getting no luck lately with ipad's. I have now encountered this NO SIM issue on an iPad 2. Replaced the SIM reader twice just incase of faulty 'new' hardware. Checked the photobucket picture shown above and have no continuity on the red wire from SIM reader to GSM board. Whats the best method of running a jumper. I don't have a board view of that part of the card.

Same issue, here is what works for me:

  1. Powering it off sometimes help.
  2. Toggling airplane mode also helps.... after doing it MANY times

Apple products is only a fashion statement, in the real world they don't have durability.

Found out a method from cleaning coins, that applies to SIM-Cards. I had the same problem. I've cooked the sim-card in salty water with a bit of aluminium foil in it --> This takes away the oxidation from the metal on the chip. I've put the chip back in and it was instantly recognised! Hope that helpts

NO SIM problem can happen to iPhone and iPad. It happen because the sim card is not connected to it place.

This method is worked for me. And i Hope it work for All of you too.

Here's the method:

1. Remove the sim card

2.Remove the Touchscreen, LCD and LCD Shield Plate.

3. Push down firmly at sim card slot. (Like pushing a button)

4. Insert the sim card, and see.
