Default SIM card error

Please Login to Remove!

Recently I've been getting a headline in white text just above the digital clock display that reads "SIM card error". As far as I can tell, this error hasn't affected the functionality of my phone in any way aside from the fact that it reboots if I turn it off. When it finishes rebooting, the "SIM card error" text disappears, and all seems fine. However, after a while, it reappears. I suspect its reemergence is related to when I receive text messages or calls, since after one such instance whereby I rebooted my phone and the error went away, it came back immediately after I received a text message from one of my contacts.

Anyone ever encounter this error before? Any ideas as to what's going on? Thanks in advance.

Make sure that your sim is in tighly. You may want to get a new sim card as you should every 5 years or so. Also, make sure ur software is up to date.

I recently upgraded to .148, and my phone is only 7 months old, so age and software isn't a factor. Another problem I had noticed is that when I selected "SIM Phone Book" under BB options in my contact list, a small pop up alert read "Error accessing SIM card".

I didn't think the SIM card could come loose, since the battery itself pretty much blocks it from moving any significant amount, and I'm always very careful with my Storm, never shake it, drop it, or manhandle it in any way. However, I was able to push the SIM card in a tiny bit, and after doing that, I was able to access my "SIM Phone Book", which leads me to believe the problem may be completely rectified. Thanks for the suggestion.
