Over the last week My Galaxy S4 has been dropping out and says " no sim card detected insert card or reboot.
I reboot it and works fine for a short while then my phone says it cant find the card again.
I have the 4g card for a couple of months now.
I did get a new card from telecom thinking it was the card. but still get issues.
Has any one else come across this problem of their Samsung S4 doing this?

I got that extended warrenty on it with Noel Lemmings so its got a 3 years warrenty on it.

I had the same with my S3. Turned out to be a faulty SIM tray. Had to get it repaired under warranty. This may or may not be your issue. Just FYI.

Cheers.

you hope it's under warranty, send it in and hope they don't blame you for "water damage"

Yup. I had real issues getting a warranty repair done with Samsung. Got there in the end but boy was it a painful experience.

If it was bought locally it shouldn't have been a problem..  It's the retailers problem not yours..

I bet they don't put up a sign saying come on in customers bring in all your gadgets with issues and we will take care of all your problems.

More like ... I pretend i have no idea what my obligation is ... By the way are you sure your didn't dunk it in the swimming pool or deop it from eiffel tower?
