My Galaxy S7 edge (G935P) sim card slot is broken. It doesn't recognize any sim card I put. I managed to program my phone number into the phone using CDMA Network. I can make calls, but I can't send sms texts or enable data. When I try to enable data I get a message "Insert sim card to access network service". The same thing when I try to send a text "sending failed". Is there any way to trick the phone to think there's a sim card when there isn't.

  • No... Why not just get a new SIM card? – acejavelin Jun 18 '19 at 15:51
  • (acejavelin) Read the question carefully before writing useless comments. The sim card is fine, it's the sim card slot that is broken. – Adnan Adel Jun 18 '19 at 16:55
  • lol... My mistake, I read to fast apparently and apologize. But my answer is still the same, no, in modern phones the SIM is required. Note you can get a replacement SIM tray for a very small investment, it is available on Amazon, eBay, and I imagine other similar sites depending on your location. amazon.com/Card-Holder-Slot-Samsung-Galaxy/dp/B01GDMDCYO – acejavelin Jun 18 '19 at 20:46
