Just in case: I'm using a OnePlus Two US Model (ONE A2005 / tocino) running Android 5.1.1 with MoKee (MK51.1-tocino-160403-RELEASE). I have root and xposed running as well. Using Nova Launcher, but lock screen is built in with the ROM (as in unchanged).

I'm been looking for a way to remove the "No SIM Card - Emergency calls only" from my lock screen. It would be better if I can modify the line with a custom message; replacing it, basically.

I tried looking for this online, but the only resources I found is to remove the No SIM Card icon and notification on the home screen.

Any ideas?

    If your device is rooted, you could try Xposed with the HideMissingSIM module. Promises to remove it from the status bar. Not sure if it also removes it from the lockscreen itself. Hide No SIM icon promises the same – again no mention of the lock screen.

    @Izzy Thank you, but I already installed this module. arana below works. Apr 19, 2016 at 22:56
  • I have the same annoying issue on my OPX (E1003). Though it happens rarely, the only way to get rid of it is to reboot the phone. Still not sure what causes it.

Since you are rooted and comfortable with custom ROMs and Xposed etc, you can use Clean Lockscreen.

If you don't want to use an Xposed module, add the following line to your build.prop file: (After you made a backup!)


Now reboot your device. If you still see this message change this line:


To this:


Then reboot your phone, and if that didn't work, change the previous line to this:

    Thank you! Clean Lockscreen is working perfectly to remove the No SIM Card notification. Apr 19, 2016 at 22:57
