    I have the same issue on ipad 2 64gb WiFi + 3G.  Since my warranty was out more than 2 years, I decided to send it in for repair after 6 months of NO SIM issue.  I think I have tried all the tricks here. 

     

    I was recommended to have the SIM card reader module replaced. So I agreed but it turns out that the new SIM card reader is even worst. My original SIM card reader could at least detect my SIM after many rounds of airplane mode on and off.  The new SIM card reader keep showing NO SIM.  So frustrating.... Should I then ask the repairer to take out the new SIM card reader and reuse the original SIM card reader?

    I have the same problem on my iPad 2 and lived with it for months thinking it was just a faulty SIM. Turns out that it is not. The SIM from my phone doesn't work when put into the iPad either and the SIM from the iPad works fine in my phone. So my iPad is at fault, be it software or hardware (most likely). Not sure what to do but really upset with Apple as this seems like such a common problem on an expensive device, which should be more reliable.

    It's absolutely reprehensible that Apple is not taking any responsibility for this malfunction, given how widespread the problem is. Mine also lost the use of the front facing camera after installing OS 7, another common problem, rendering it a very expensive but almost useless device. BTW, this is coming from someone who has been devoted to Apple products since 1984, and still is. But please Apple, come up with a fair and satisfactory policy to replace these broken iPads!

    I had this exact same problem after changing my iPad case. I tried literally everything except for slightly bending the SIM card reader as suggested above which I know was a risk.

     

    Apple said the repair would cost £206.22 so I tried bending the reader slightly and it worked!

    bending the tray was the solution here on my ipad mini retina as well.

    it stopped suddenly working, which migt be due to ambient temperature low -2, i thought first, so i cleaned, used airplane mode etc.

    card was fine as checked in y iphone.  bending the tray slightly helped.  still be careful as the tray is not very robust...

    good luck folks.

    I have a new SIM card for my ipad2 and got this -no SIM card install- message, then I put the new SIM card in my ipad 4, it worked. Then put it back in the ipad2 still did not work. Is it only happen with older ipad generation?

    My ipad 2 gave the same no SIM error after working for few months with the cellular / 3G connection. There is not solution- I tried all options found in Internet: re-insert the SIM, reset settings, put a cello-tape behind the SIM to make it tightly fitted. Finally took it to Apple store. Same proudy attitude of reppresentatives: we do not repair (it sounds like they do not know how to repair own product, or there can not be any faulty design in their so-called hyped product!), but can repalce for $249 + tax, as my warranty is over. I am not going to pay again to a company I no longer trust, which is blind to all the frustrating issue we are facing here. Customers are kings: they make a company, they can also leave a company to history. So Apple, accept the reality that you too can make faulty roduct, so recall and replace it free if your motto is to delight customer.

    Had the same "No SIM" card problem not long after upgrading to IOS 7.1.1. The Apple Store Genius guy determined that nothing was wrong with the SIM card, tried all the tricks suggested in previous posts, and then helpfully suggested that for $249 I could replace my old iPad 2 with another one.

     

    Today I upgraded to IOS 7.1.2 and  now the iPad recognizes the SIM card. Who knows for how long this be, but it proves that the "No SIM" card problem is IOS version related.
