But before we can jump to the different diagnostic processes, we must learn about another symptom associated with the iPhone No Service with SIM card issue.

This iPhone No Service issue is the scenario where your iPhone can read your SIM and network settings yet cannot perform to its full capacity. This means you can see the signal bars on the top but still cannot utilise the speed of your internet the way it is supposed to be. This issue is by far the most complex scenario that repair experts face but this too has a logical explanation to it.

Modem Firmware Not Available’ Why Is This Issue Common In iPhone 11, 12, and 13 Series?

Now that you understand the different kinds of symptoms associated with the iPhone No Service with SIM card issue, we can proceed to the technical aspects that become the cause of this problem in the first place. The Baseband IC has to do a lot with it.

Baseband ICs are irreplaceable compared to a BB PMU IC (for proper power supply)  or WTR  Network IC (for the connection between the CPU and Baseband IC). The reason is simple – baseband ICs have encrypted data including the device’s IMEI number. Thus it cannot be replaced and any damage to it can only be helped in certain cases.

But most iPhone No Service or iPhone No Service with SIM Card issues occur because of these above-mentioned parts facing a damage or technical error. These can be fixed by contacting the top city-wide experts around you. You can reach them via call or WhatsApp and book your appointment today.
