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.

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

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"?

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.

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?

So it WAS the SIM card after all. :smileywink:

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

Congrats on getting your issue resolved, and that the issue itself was a relatively simple matter.

 

FWIW--given the initial experience you had in trying to get your issue resolved, it's no wonder AT&T ranks near the bottom in customer support; I mean, you had one AT&T corp store implying to you that it must be an Apple problem and refusing to do even something as simple as swap a SIM card--how hard would it have been for them to try it?
