Sim Card is Blocked on iPhone 8 in the middle of using

Hello

 

My iPhone will keep suddenly showing no network connection on various different apps right in the middle of using even though the signal bar at the top will show full service and the 4G icon is showing. It is only when I turn my phone off and turn it back on it will tell me the sim card is blocked.

 

Any reason why this would happen and is there anyway I can unblock the sim card without restarting the phone. I've tried turning off Sim Pin in settings and turning back on again but does not unblock the phone all together.

 

Is there any real benefits to having Sim Pin turned on the first place or am I betting off just leaving it switched off?

 

Cheers

@Deano2175  The Sim pin is in case you lose your phone it stops someone else from using your Sim.   But try cleaning the sim with a damp cloth. Make sure it’s dry before you put it back in the device.

Hi @Deano2175,

 

Welcome to the EE Community. 🙂

 

Did @Chris_B's tip help?

 

If not, does the Network Status Checker show any problems in your area?

 

Thanks
