I've got a storm 9530 on VZW, latest official OS. A bit ago I got a SIM card error at random, and now I'm seeing "No Valid SIM Card" in the advanced options. I've tried removing/replacing it, with no change. I know that in the US the card isn't actually "used", but I'd still like to know why its busted.
Solved! Go to Solution.

There are a lot of reasons it could be wiped -- mostly about EM. What I'd suggest is taking your Storm in for warranty evaluation. It could be that the Storm itself had some kind of surge that wiped the SIM...which would, if true, mean that even if you got the SIM replaced, it could happen again. Which would mean that you need an entire new device rather than just a new SIM. Better to be safe.

I read on one of the post on here about the click screen not responding in some areas. The "do it yourself fix'' was to loosen the "two" #5 torque screws located in back,under door ( one having a red sticker with a white strip on it) a 1/4 turn or so. I tried this and in the process it loosened the little metal plate that holds the SIM CARD in place too. So I all of a sudden got the SIM CARD error also. I retightened the torque screw next to the SIM CARD a 1/8 turn and it was reading the SIM CARD again.... If your feeling brave you can try to tighten the screw JUST a little.... 1/8 of a turn maybe and see if it locked it down some.
If not feeling brave take it to phone tech and ask them too try this... If it works, It's better then replacing phone and going thru the reinstall of all your contacts apps. and just plain ol' hassle of waiting on a new phone. I used a small eye glass flat head screwdriver that fit just right if you don't have the right size torture driver....
P.S loosening the screws did fix my clicking issue.... I just may have loosened them too much and I only went a 1/4 turn.... Backing the one down by the Sim down by a 1/8 ...all fixed.....works great now
