I know there is multiple Post about this issue! Here is my latest Info.. I am on my 3rd Sim card same phone. first card was replaced 10 days after I got the phone. Second card was replaced 3 days ago. both times I was resetting the phone 4-6 times a day. Went to the VZW store the were going to have a new phone sent but with my line of work emergency services I needed the Phone working now so I took the 3rd sim card for now and called *611 they have more lateral to work with you. Talked with tech support and per HTC its the SIM card tray. had a 3 way call with VZW tech support and HTC tech support. They have a new SIM card tray that they are sending out to me instead of replacing the whole phone. They think this is the fix. We will see.
I wish it were that easy...
See their reply. (copy and pasted below)

I have been having the sim card problem for about 2 weeks. Today was the first time I had a chance to go to a verizon store. Justin the manager suggested changing the sim card. I asked what would be our next step after that did not work. His answer was to replace the card again. I asked if there are lemon laws for cell phones. Justin then handed me off to Emma. Emma stated that she had the same phone and that changing cards did not help with hers. She said changing phones did not either. Her suggestion was that she could give me credit towards a new phone that I would have to purchase. This phone is about 90 days old. I should not have to purchase anything. I would expect verizon to test and vet a product throughly before they put their name on it. I understand that they did not manufacture the phone but they have sold it knowing full well of this problem. If I purchased a car from the Nissan dealer across the street from them the dealer would be responsible for repairs and getting the car in working order. They would not tell me to contact Japan or to disconnect the battery on a 3 month old car every time I want to drive it. Mcdonald's does not process the burgers in the resturant but they are still responsible for the quality.
I left the verizon store with Emma sending me a replacement phone by Tuesday. She said this would be the fastest way to escalate my problem. Every time I get a sim card error have them send me a replacement phone.
I also left with my blood pressure at its highest level ever. Has anyone ever left any cell phone store with their blood pressure at the same level as when you entered?
I am on 3rd phone replacement and 3rd sim card. Most disturbing is that my phone was within the 1yr warranty but Verizon Store insisted nothing wrong, replaced sim card and although they asked me for all of the required identification for my account they did not record the issues. Because I travel for work and depend on my phone I have had to find verizon stores 3 while traveling and 4 times to the local store where I picked-up the phone. No they tell me I am outside warranty and I do not have an upgrade for one year. If you ask me this is a breach of contact on there part. I have spend hours on the phone with corporate which is a merry go round. One person took over one hour just to take my address to ship me what eventually was another defective replacement refurb phone. I just printed all of these comments and will be heading back to the store where I purchased my phone.
This has caused me much grief are we all just going to keep letting the MAN (Corp) kick our butts around?
How is it a breach of contract? They replaced your phone, as stated in your contract, for the one year warranty period, as stated in your contract. Also, why don't you just contact HTC and have them send you a new SIM card tray like was stated in several other threads about this same issue?
going on 3rd replacement and 3rd sim card- I called Motorola they are no
longer making this model bc of ongoing issues of defects. So Verizon is
still replacing defective phones with defective phones. Not good faith. We
are so beholden to these monopolies as consumer we are doormats- one part
of the US that stinks is our supposed deregulation that created utility
monopolies that we are stuck with like Verizon
I had the same problem until I did the "tape" fix. Simply pop out your SIM card. Place some scotch tape on the back and trim the excess. Reinsert the SIM card and BAM, no more SIM errors. It has been about 3 months since I had any SIM errors. Better than the 3 and 4 a week I was getting.
Did the tray fix your problem? I'm waiting on my tray to arrive and in the mean time dealing with a phone that doesn't work! I've also had my SIM card replaced, it doesn't help. Hoping to see several replies that say it does help. Also, when I called HTC they were not willing to overnight the tray and stated they weren't sure when I'd get it. They said probably next Monday and I spoke with them early Wednesday. Verizon sent me a replacement but I agree, I don't want a refurbished phone, don't want to lose what I have on my phone, and after reading posts that the refurbished phones don't work either, what's the point???
