The results from the experiment...
The cause of this error is due to the sim card not resting tightly against the sim contacts in the iPhone.
For some reason, the sim card slot is a few micrometres too big for the sim card to fit in tightly.
After all the hype, one would have thought Apple must have gotten the manufacturing right.
FIX: (Turn off your iPhone before proceeding!)
Step 1: First, we need to remove the sim card. If you do not already know how to do this, use a paper clip to eject the sim card tray, then take out the sim card.
2. Just to give it that extra sensitivity, dip a ball of cotton wool in alcohol or methylated spirit, then clean the contacts on the sim with it (just one swipe will do). Allow the alcohol to dry.
3. Cut three small pieces of scotch tape and put them on the sim (the part without the contacts). This is to give the sim some extra body so it would fit tightly in its place.
4. Put the sim card back into its tray and insert it back into your iPhone.
5. Now put your iPhone back on.
