IPhone and “No SIM Card Installed” message

I normally do not write on the weekends and even more so I usually schedule my posts from the night before or even several days in advance.  These circumstance however, are different.  I accidentally dropped my iPhone and it immediately display “No Service” and a pop-up message “No SIM card installed’.  I restarted the device, nothing changed.  I started scouring the internet and it looks like this is a common problem.

The problem was the SIM card was not “in” all of the way – apparently.  From many posts on the internet this seems to be a common problem but in all cases the people visually saw the SIM card sticking out.  Well, guess what?  Mine looked fine!  Which make my solution even more strange.  I simply pressed on the SIM card and it came alive.  The card was not sticking out and it didn’t even appear to move but it worked.
