    Default NO SIM Card - Problem - - Need help from Italy

    I recently bought an iPhone 3G on ebay with a NO SIM card problem. I thought I could handle it myself but dont know what to do. Whenever I insert a SIM card nothing on the iPhone screen changes. The whole time I get the No SIM card installed message. I also pwned it, but it still shows NO SIM in the upper left corner. I dont know what to do. I think its not an unlocking problem.
    I have the original receipt from the Telecom Italia store and can get it exchanged. As I'm living in Germany, I am not able to got to Italy and get an exchange at an TIM store. If someone from Italy is willing to help me, I'd very much appreciate that!!!

    Someone brought me a phone that didn't recognize the sim card so i just put a small piece of paper between the tray and the sim and it fixed it, my guess is that it was just the sim not making contact with whatever reads it inside the phone.

    Dont use something thick or you might have problems getting the sim out.

    You should open it and check the pins of the sim card, see if any are damaged or such. There are some pretty neat videos on how to open the iphone ( there is one with a suction cup to pull out the iphone top part ).

    I had exactly the same Problem with my sim card. I called my provider (eplus) to send me a new card. I said my old one does not work with my new umts phone (in case they ask say n95..., but they did not). They agreed to send it to me without activation cost since i have a contract with them for 10 years. With the New card everything is perfect now.

    It's either a hardware issue (ask for replacement by TIM) or a simcard problem. TIM is selling factory unlocked iPhone for 499/569 Euros (8GB/16GB).
    You insert your simcard, start up iTunes and it will be unlocked. After taht if you want Cydia&Installer i'd recommend to use Quickpwn. If you are on a Mac, just start Quickpwn and let it do the Job. On Windows uncheck the option "Unlock phopne".

    For now to make sure it is not a hardware problem first check with your provider that the simcard is ok, get a replacement. Then DFU restore to Apple stock firmware in iTunes (the new / working simcard in the iPhone). At the end of the process the iPhone should be unlocked if the hardware is ok.
