Has anyone else had this issue? My iPhone 5 will randomly switch back and forth between "No SIM" and having service. Sometimes it stays on No SIM for a few minutes before getting service, other times longer. Resetting the phone, popping the SIM card in and out and combinations of the two do not work. I went in to a Verizon store and got a new SIM and that seems to have worked for now. If not, it'll be off to an Apple store for me.

Same problem with mine -- shows no Sim. Rebooted once and it worked and it is doing it again. Tried hard reboot and get a "no Sim card" notice so have it on wifi for now.
Where is the sim card located?
Should I just take it to the Verizon store first or go straight to the Apple store?
Thank you, 5Point!
I did a HARD reboot holding down the on/off and front button and that helped it for now and LTE is back -- the first time I just held the on/off switch and that worked.
Since this is the second time it happened, I will make an appointment at the Genius Bar anyhow to have it looked at.
Had this just happen to me.
Had made a call this morning just fine. When to call again and was getting the NO SIM error.
power off/on, hard reset, reset network settings, none had any effect.
Finally worked when I powered off, popped out SIM, waited a minute, put it back in and turned phone back on.
It seems to be working okay for now - did report it to VZW customer service though when I called about another issue.
went to apple, the guy at the genius bar said they have seen a few issues where people set up their phones from an ip4 or 4s backup through iTunes, an apparent software glitch, so he reset mine to factory and I manually reloaded everything back on, so far it is working, he made a note and said if it happened again they would replace it. They did have one last lighting to usb cable left which I bought!
