I recently changed to a newer phone and currently using my old android phone as a sort of "ipod". However, it always shows the message that there is no sim card. I know this is just an annoyance but is there anyway to disable it? I am rooted running a custom sense 4 rom on ICS. Is there anything I could flash to remove this message? Or disable the cellular radio completely?
You can remove the "No SIM" notification from the Galaxy S3 S4 and Note 3 by adding an entry to your build.prop. You need root to do this.
I recommend using JRummy's Build Prop Editor. Once you've installed it, launch the app and click the bottom right icon (a
In the first box you can enter a description like so (this is optional):
# Remove "No SIM" from notification bar
In the second box, enter:
Then save and reboot.
If the "No SIM" popup still shows, or you get the "No SIM" notification icon, then look for an entry that reads:
and change that to:
If that still doesn't work, try removing
ro.config.tima=1 or set it to 0 instead of 1.
You can also add
sys.hiddenmenu.enable=1 to enable the hidden menu if it isn't already in your build.prop.
If you have root access:
- download the free "Notifications Off" app from the Play store;
- open it;
- scroll all the way down till you find "system ui" and uncheck it;
- hit the little floppy disk icon at the top to save it.
This works for my Sprint Note 3 on page plus.
