Re: No SIM CARD DETECTED!!! - 05-11-2009, 05:15 AM
VMC is Vodafone Mobile Connect.
If you hit CTRL/ALT/DELETE you can see how much Vodafone stuff boots at startup (another reason to ditch the Vodafone Software as well).
Anything with VMC stuff seems to override the modem when running other software.
I've got a colleague who's buzzed the sim slot and it is a software issue NOT hardware. If all else fails then remove everything from hardware devices (modem related of course- not everything!) and when Windows 'finds' new hardware simply point to the drivers elsewhere on this forum for the Caroline Jones GPS Hack and that'll give you GPS as well.
You can sort this out though.

The problem I think he is having that it never detected the SIM card since he installed it, not that it just stopped working. Either there is a software problem (unlikely) or the hardware wasn't soldered in correctly or is incompatible/damaged.

I have had similar problems with this, and think I have finally nailed it down. For some reason the Mini manages to retain the SIM information even when the Mini is off.
I found the solution was to Shutdown the Mini, remove the power, take off the battery, replace the SIM, then, and this is KEY...LEAVE THE BATTERY OUT FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES.....so there is no power to the Mini from either battery or Power Supply....then replace the battery and fire up the Mini, then open Wireless Manager and it should find your SIM.
Looks like the Power has to completely die on the Mini in order for it to reset the SIM...weird!!
Works for me every time, if still a problem, try leaving the battery out for even longer.
