SIM card recognition problem after factory data reset after ICS update
I've looked through the forums and haven't seen this yet, so here goes.
After the OTA ICS update, my Rezound was behaving more strangely than usual, so I followed the great instructions supplied by TisMyDroid: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/res...ng-ics-gb.html. I backed up everything with My Backup, did the FDR, and then restored everything. I am now re-calibrating my battery per the instructions, which requires that the phone is turned off while charging (for the first two cycles). I do this overnight.
The problem is that for the last two mornings, when I turn my phone on after charging, I immediately get a message that I do not have a SIM card in the phone. This message disappears after about 5 seconds. The call function works fine.
I'll mention that I have always had trouble with the phone connecting to either 3G or 4G, but after the fdr, it's been worse, as has been my wireless connection. I can't figure out why this would just happen after an fdr, but I'm not a techie, so someone else may have some ideas. In the meantime, is the best thing to do to pull the SIM card and then remount it?
RE: SIM card recognition problem after factory data reset after ICS update
THANK YOU for posting this - I have the exact same problem with the Sim card since updating ICS, and thought I was alone.
Just an FYI - I went to a Verizon store and asked for help - they had no idea what the problem was - swapping out the sim card for a new one and the problem still persisted. They are shipping me a 'certified like new' (read as 'previously used and broken but we fixed it and want to give it to you'), but I think I'll keep my old one - you are right, the phone still works, and the warning goes away after a few seconds. Maybe if enough people have this, they'll get around to doing something about it.
But wait, there's more....
I visited my friendly neighborhood Verizon store. The tech pulled my SIM card out, let it sit for a while, re-inserted it, and of course, after numerous power offs and reboots (intentional), the nasty SIM card missing message was gone. Unfortunately, within 24 hours, my battery began freaking out. It appeared to suddenly discharge (although it had been sitting idle for only an hour at about 40%, with NOTHING turned on to to drain the batter) - the screen was dark, and the icons and text were dark blue. I plugged the phone back in, and it immediately came to life, registering about 50-60% charge. HUH?
Back to Verizon, where a different tech looked at the phone, powered off and on a few times, told me that it was odd that my phone looked like it was turning on, then appeared to turn off, then turned back on again. I told him it had always done this, even before ICS. He said it was a software problem and ordered me a...............refurbished phone. Stay tuned........
