    Default [StealthSIM] FYI to all.....

    My StealthSIM works great, so does my wifes. Recently I have been getting calls that drop, then the iPhone tells me No Signal and/or No SIM. Yes, I've read the posts upon posts about improper StealthSIM placement, that is NOT the problem. Yes, I went and got a new SIM card from T-Mobile USA (who, by the way, was more than happy to waive the $20 charge when they saw my iPhone). SIM card did not help the issue either. The new SIM, however, did match the pins on the StealthSIM much better than the 6 month old SIM from my Blackberry.

    Anyways, to get back on point... Having No Signal and No SIM errors. I RE-downgraded to 1.1.1, let it sit with iNdependence (Mac) to get away from the recovery mode, used jailbreakme.com to jailbreak and activate, did NOT install BSD Subsystem. (I think I read somewhere you needed it to use Oktoprep or something) Oktoprepped, then updated to 1.1.2 in iTunes 7.5 (Mac). Then I used the TouchFree 1.1.2 jailbreak Java program. I did NOT choose to do the backup and restore of my iPhone, left it factory and haven't had a problem since. So the problem is either an issue with installing the BSD Subsystem before updating to 1.1.2, or something with a preference that iTunes restored the first time I had this problem. (The first time I had this problem, I did do the BSD Subsystem and restored settings from iTunes, and had problems the very next morning)

    Anyone that knows more than I about iPhone know what was going on? I haven't loaded anything through Installer yet for fear it could cause this to happen again. I would *like* to have BSD Subsystem so I can use SSH and the Term100 app on the phone, and I think some other programs require it.

    Thanks for reading my book everyone!

    I am not sure if that's the reason. I have experienced something else. I had the "No SIM Installed" problem with my other Carrier (Airtel India). I noticed a trend in my "No SIM" errors. I used to get it when I move from one location to another (Office to home). My guess is, when you change SDCA (GSM Circle), the phone tries to re-register to new SDCA and it fails, but, when u restart, it starts a fresh registering process all over again, and you will get signal. This my thinking about the No SIM Problem. I am now on a different provider trying to find out if I get same error again on this one.... its been 2 days.... so, lets see, I will keep all posted.

    @st1172 - if your theory is correct, how would you get signal if you restart (I am guessing that you were getting the signal when u restart). If this is due to some application, then you should have No SIM message all the time.

    Default I solved this problem for me, maybe it could help you

    I had the same thing happen to me. It would say "NO SIM", then i would reset and it would go back to normal for a while, then do the same thing over.
    After trying to align, I got a new SIM. Same issue. I figured out that the stealth sim slips to the side just enough to lose contact. I got a tiny piece of double sided scotch tape, and put it on the top corner between the sim and stealth sim. I have not had the NO SIM since. Give it a shot. Worked perfect for me.

    I had the tape in there too, didn't make much difference. I've noticed that the SIM tray goes into the iPhone a bit tighter since I didn't almost cut my SIM in half this time by accident. I don't think it has anything to do with home or work either, since it would happen in both places. It was very strange. It would happen for several hours, I'd reseat StealthSIM a few times, and would still have the same issue, then it would go away on it's own. As of today, I had one hiccup where it went to LOW signal, but didn't go away or give NO SIM error, and I was able to place a call with the low signal and then it came back up to normal signal strength, so I think it was a weird coincidence. I still think it had something to do with either the BSD subsystem being on there before the update to 1.1.2 or something somewhere in a preference that was removed during restore.

    The important thing is I haven't had the issue again since....
