Re: 4s says no sim card.

Try removing and reinserting the SIM.

Next thing I would try is a replacement SIM from AT&T... all else fails, then it's a hardware issue for Apple to address.

Re: 4s says no sim card.

Did you ever find a solution to the "No SIM" issue?

Re: 4s says no sim card.

When you powered on the phone, was your SIM card already installed like it usually would be (unless you take it out for some reason every time you turn your phone off)? When you turned it on, did it just out of the blue state "Invalid SIM"?

Re: 4s says no sim card.

I do find it very odd that if your SIM card is indeed inside of the phone, the phone is not detecting it. I also find it kind of lame that the AT&T corporate store you visited did not provide you with another SIM.

If you don't mind trying again, maybe at a different store, explain the problem and ask for another SIM. If they will not give you one for free, purchase one.

I hate it when technology has problems. Especially when they appear at random, so unexpected.

Re: 4s says no sim card.

You're completely right. Wow, that is weird...

It must be a SIM card problem. Do you have any other iPhones you can temporarily place your SIM card in to see if it's a problem with the SIM or a problem with the phone itself? Or have another person with an iPhone (perhaps a family member) put their SIM inside of your phone?

Re: 4s says no sim card.

So it WAS the SIM card after all. Smiley Wink

Anyhow, glad you got your phone working back to normal again and thanks for clarifying! Hopefully you shall experience no more issues!
