Default Sporadic "Invalid SIM card" error

Please Login to Remove!

Hello to all,

my BB (which I love so much) lately gives me a problem I cannot solve so far.

From time to time it would just stop receiving calls, emails and everything else and display "Invalid SIM card" error. In the beginning I would just switch it off, remove the battery, put it all back and turn it on again and everything was fine again. But lately this is just happening too often.

I have tried with brand new, different, battery - problem is the same.

My provider - AT&T, this is the original phone, hasn't been unlocked, there was no need since I use AT&T network. The phone works fine when there is no error and I am very sure this has nothing to do with locking/unlocking the phone (I have googled and searched - this forum as well - and always got the unlocking as solution which is not the case here).

AT&T help desks was unable to help with this.

Please help. Thanks.

A battery replacement won't fix a glitch SIM card like changing the oil in your car won't fix bad brakes. There's no correlation.
Get a SIM swap from ATT. I've seen this simple fix work too many times.
