Yesterday out of the blue my phone said invalid sim. I rebooted the phone and it did not help.
I waited a few minutes and shut the phone down for 3 minutes and them restarted the phone and it was fine.
Is this going to be a reoccurring issue.
Should I go to my Apple store or call Verizon.
Don't want this to keep happening since I run a business through my phone.
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.

This was happening to me on and off since launch day. Rebooting fixed it until a few weeks ago. I wound up fixing it by removing the SIM card and wiping it off with a microfiber cloth. looked like it had something smudged on it like fingerprint grease. working fine now and I haven't gotten the invalid SIM error again since.Current Apple Devices : Retina MacBook Pro 13" (2014) | iPhone 6 128gb Space Grey (VZ) | iPad Air 128gb White (VZ) | iPod Classic 160gb | Apple TV | MacBook Pro 13" (2012)

I got the same invalid sim error in the same location today.
I have never removed the card so I doubt it's dirty, not sure if its LTE related or weather related.
I leave my phone in my truck while I work. It was not that cold today.
If I turn off the phone... Wait a minute and turn back on its fine, problem is I miss texts and calls while its in invalid sim mode.
Is this a phone issue or a SIM card issue....

Re: Invalid Sim
I used to have this issue with my iPhone 4. It happens on some units when the sim tray is a little loose. If the SIM card loses contact then it will give problems. I took my iPhone 4 in I had screen shots of the times it said "no sim" which was what happened to me. I explained what happened and that I had to reseat the SIM while the phone was on to fix it and they swapped the phone. I never had a problem after that. Whatever you do don't restore your phone the tool they use to test your network connection the logs get wiped out on a restore. They need a week's worth of logs but I don't think they will even check the logs just do screeshots when it happens to show.can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460

I cleaned my SIM card even though it was not dirty.
I hope this resolves my SIM card issues.
I think it's software related not a physical issue, seems to always happen in one customers driveway.
It's happened other places too but never at my house.
I guess I'll take screen shots and record the issue and bring it to apple if it persists.

I don't think Apple has replacement micro, er, nano, er, "whatever they call them" SIMs. I'd give them a call to check before you make a trip.
I completely agree about the Verizon Store too. Some of the things their reps say to customers make me just shake my head and walk away.Golfaholic, iAddict, Tech Nerd, Music Aficionado, Bookworm, Instagrammer and Gentleman all tied together with a great sense of humor!

Re: Invalid Sim
I had this happen last night, December 18, 2012. I was at work getting ready to leave and was walking out of the office and checked my phone and saw "Invalid Sim" where my 'service' bar(s) usually are. I then proceeded to text a friend to see if they could get my text and of course, "Not Delivered". I then tried to place a call to see if maybe this would some how reconnect my "Sim/Service" but the call failed. I waited about 30 minutes and then my phone returned to normal. Not sure what the cause of this was but I hope this is not a regular thing. I will be visiting the nearest Apple store if this occurs again (after taking screenshots of the mishap).
