Removed SIM card and restarted phone. Cannot make calls. Upper left screen shows "No SIM" and "SOS Only"
It sounds like either the SIM card is not functioning, or your sim tray slot is no longer working. Have you tried using eSim?
Okay, you are removing the SIM and restarting the phone with no SIM? Or are you trying to activate an eSIM instead of a physical SIM?
