When your phone asks you to insert a SIM card when one is already inserted, it's often the result of a defective SIM card. Turn your phone off, take out and reinsert your SIM card, and turn your phone on again. If your phone still can't recognize your SIM card, you will need to get a new one. Go to your carrier's nearest store and swap the SIM cards. If your phone recognizes the new card, you're set to use your phone again. However, if your phone still doesn't recognize the SIM card, there is a chance that something is wrong with the contacts inside your phone. Unfortunately, this will require a repair. Call Samsung's customer service to schedule a repair for your phone. If you're under warranty, you will be covered and you won't have to pay anything; if you're not under warranty, you will unfortunately have to pay for the repair. Depending on how much it is, it may make more sense for you to purchase a new phone.

Galaxy 4 from Straight Talk - want to know about SIM card or unlocking the phone?

I have a Samsung Galaxy 4 from Straight Talk. The Straight Talk people are not helpful. I left Straight Talk and am went back to prepaid Verizon. I have this Galaxy 4 but the SIM card in it is AT&T. I can't get any signal with it where I live. Can you purchase or obtain a Verizon SIM card or somehow unlock the phone ?

I have been running cm13 nighties for over six months with no issues, but today's nightly was cm14 version. My phone does not see the SIM card, and I can't get past the error message to fix the problem?

Is there a way to roll back to cm13 or add apps for 7.1 (I tried unsuccessfully several times but can't connect to a computer to transfer files)?
