Re: SIM not detected

Looks like the SIM contacts are damaged.
That will definitely be a repair job. Either order a bag to send it off for repair or take it to your nearest Vodafone shop. That is if you got it on contract from Vodafone.

Re: SIM not detected

Hi morritos,


Before sendiong the handset off, you might want to try wiping the area of the SIM contacts with a dry cloth in case there's any dirt or dust in the way. Whilst they're not all reachable, you might catch the edges of anything affecting the hidden ones.


 If that doesn't help, you can see how to arrange a warranty repair here.
