Hello to you Elgato137!
Let's teach your phone to read! Not being able to read the sim card is a pretty big deal as you won't have any service! I will be delighted to provide some additional options!
Thank you so much for trying to restart your phone, that's a major troubleshooting step! I would recommend removing and reinserting your sim card and make sure it's in the correct direction.
Do you receive any sort of error messages?
