Remember that a SIM card (which stands for subscriber identification module card) does not store much information. The only things that can be stored on the SIM card are a few contacts and text messages; other than that, the SIM card is used to connect to your carrier's network. When you insert your SIM card into your Samsung Galaxy Note3, your phone will show that you are getting reception. Once you see the type of reception you're getting -- EDGE, 3G, 4G, or 4G LTE -- you are good to go. Your Samsung Galaxy Note3 has successfully read the SIM card and has connected to your carrier's network. If you insert your SIM card into your phone and it is unable to connect to your carrier's network, restart your phone, take out and reinsert the SIM card, and turn it back on. You should now be able to connect to your carrier's network. If not, you may have a faulty SIM card. Your next course of action is to head to your carrier's nearest store to get a replacement SIM card. The customer service representative will help you install it properly so that your Samsung Galaxy Note3 will connect to the carrier's network. If your phone still does not connect to the network after the SIM card is inserted, you may need to schedule a repair or replacement for your phone with the customer service representative at the store. If this is the case, you may or may not have to pay for repairs or the replacement depending on the severity of the issue and your warranty status with both Samsung and your carrier.

My SIM card does not seem to 'seat' properly in the slot. The phone cannot read it?

See above. The phone keeps saying there is no SIM card & to insert It.. I have tried to file the left side of the card to get it to slip completely into the slot.. What more can I do?. I have tried: Very slightly trimming the left side of the card. Then I tried filing the card-left side & top to get it to fit. Still no go.. I think it was caused by: I lost my phone & this is a replacement, including the SIM card...one you punch out of the credit card sized card. It appears to be a dense card stock. Not plastic

My phone reads no SIM and will not work at all?

It was working fine and I turned it off to save the battery when I went into work when I powered it back on it says no SIM and will not work at all. I have tried: I've taken the SIM card out numerous times and the battery and put it back in to no avail. I think it was caused by: My son had my phone so no telling
