Samsung S4 - unlocked, frequently says SIM card is not installed.

Samsung S4 - unlocked, since around 4 month it always shows me that the SIM card is not installed. Restart the phone it might work or not. "No Simm card installed" coming up more frequently. Had the sim card replaced 2 month ago - still is coming up 8-10 times a day. Anything I can do?

Could be a failing SIM reader in the phone(though unlikely). Try a factory reset of ur phone but back up all info first.

My first advice when this happens is to get a new SIM card. A SIM card is way more likely to fail than a SIM card reader.
