Periodically - and recently every over day or thereabouts - my phone will “lose track:” of the SIM card. It will tell me that I have no SIM card, and can’t make phone calls or send texts. Then I have to remove the case, get out the little tool, remove the SIM card tray, make sure the SIM card is still sitting on the tray, and shove the tray back in. At that point the phone may recognize the SIM card once again and require me to reactivate again with Republic Wireless. Or it may not recognize the SIM card still, and I may have to shove the tray in and out two or three times.
This doesn’t seem right to me. It’s a major pain in the ■■■■, and I’m slowly wearing out the little hole that I insert the special tool into. I may reach the point where I can’t even pull the tray out any more. It’s also the case where I may not notice for several hours, or overnight, that I can’t make or receive phone calls. Since I’m old and live alone, and this cell phone is my only means of communication with the outside world, this could potentially be a serious problem.
Has anyone else encountered this problem with their Motorola phone and a loose SIM card? Is there anything that can be done about it?
