comment I have no signal/service and keep getting the message “NO SIM CARD - emergency calls only” on Samsung galaxy S2
Strange it is indeed. Only thing coming to my mind is that SIMs also evolve. Your card might be an "older model" not quite "compatible" with newer devices/ROMs. Just an idea, which might be true or not. I'm confident your new SIM will solve that issue (fingers crossed, still ;)

comment How to use android device as display or terminal?
Then I'm afraid chances are pretty low -- unless you find a 3rd party tethering app which auto-starts when detecting a specific device via USB, or something similar. If Tasker requires root to toggle that, there won't be an automated way without root.

That sounds reasonable. You can verify again by e.g. using your SIM in your friend's phone. If it doesn't work there either, contact your carrier for a replacement. Not sure how that happened -- but defective SIM cards are no Android-specific issue then ;) Good luck nevertheless!

comment Cannot remove/rename/move build.prop, new insights
@Nos not even in recovery (which I was talking of)? Or can you do that via adb shell (first su, then mount -o remount,rw /system, then modify the build.prop)?

Could you check with Settings › Storage (and integrate a screenshot with your question)? Also see our internal-storage tag-wiki for some hints.

comment Cannot remove/rename/move build.prop, new insights
You will first need to mount /system in read-write mode, and then it's /system/build.prop you need to deal with. A factory-reset wouldn't help you anyway (doesn't touch /system).

comment Multiple keyboards for multiple applications
That's the part always confusing, yes: that action is part of the "System+" section, not the "root" section. Difference is that "System+" requires either the app being a System app, or having the helper installed. While the former definitely requires root, I always forget whether the helper does as well …

comment How to use android device as display or terminal?
Good points. If the device is rooted, auto-enabling USB tether should not be a big deal for e.g. Tasker with the Secure Settings Plugin, as my Tasker graphs reveal – just a matter of finding the right trigger-acction :)

Maybe via VNC?

comment Is it possible to adjust aspect ratio on an Android device?
Maybe something in the options of the video player used? If not, tried a different one already?

comment how to download pictures from sd card to phone?
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Is the card recognized as such (if not, you might need a specific, so-called "OTG cable")? Can you somehow browse the pictures?

comment Phone doesn't turn wifi off and weirdly transmits data
Slight misunderstanding: I've meant "answer" as in "pushing the 'answer your own question" button, giving the details there, then accept the answer :) Other than a comment, that marks your issue "solved", and thus easy to identify as "having a solution" :) See our help/self-answer page for details.
