SIM Card not detected on your HTC DROID DNA? Try getting a new SIM card from Verizon

Over the last year I’ve gotten the “SIM Card not detected” error message on my HTC DROID DNA a number of times. I would try one or more of the first 3 solutions I found on the Internet which I listed in my post in February 2013. Recently it started happening too often and those solutions did not work for too long.

So I decided to move down the list to item #5: Go to the nearest Verizon store and get a new SIM card. * I did this a week ago today and haven’t had the error message since then. The Verizon rep put in an NFC SE SIM card which adds an additional level of security that other SIM cards don’t have by helping protect your personal information (e.g., credit/debit card numbers, account numbers, access codes, etc.). It’s required to support apps and services, such as the Isis Mobile Wallet.

Here’s hoping this puts an end to the error message and keeps me connected to the Verizon network.


* I made a conscious decision to skip over item #4: Do a hard reset of the phone. It was much quicker to make the drive to my local Verizon store.
