Remove your battery and SIM card. Reseat the SIM and place the battery back in. If you continue to get the error it's time for a trip to the store for
a new SIM card.

Good Luck!

Mine was keep showing sos where the bars would be for my singal. Took me awhile to figure it out but it is the sim card door that is at fault. I first noticed it after i droped my phone. I didnt do it everytime i droped. It sucked pullin the battery everytime it did though. All you have to do is take the sim out and take a some paper and fold it a few times I think mine is three folds. put the sim card aginst the paper and then cut right next to the sim card all the way around. Then put your sim back in with the door still open put the paper that you cut to be the same shape as your sim on top of the sim and then close the door. you may need less paper folds or more. Has worked great for me and ive never seen the sos again. Hope this helps!
