Bought the i9515 brand new. After only one year of moderate use it started giving me the "sim card removed,phone will restart" error. I have tried everything: bought a new sim/microsd tray, wedged pieces of paper over the connector, upgraded and downgraded the firmware,bought a new battery; nothing helped. Bought another i9505 main board (it.s a perfect fit on the i9515 btw), after a couple of weeks same issue! After many searches on the web the problem seems to be a bad connection on one of the chips on the main board. Very dissapointed with Samsung,having these issues on a past flagship that was 500 euros when it was launched. I will never again buy a phone that has Samsung written on it!!!
mik, 05 Jan 2017is marshmallow available for samsung s4 i9505Yes, but only via a custom ROM. I have TWRP and CM13 installed on mine (Android Marshmallow version 6.0.1). Samsung stopped at Lollipop 5.0.1, so the CyanogenMod ROM brings things more up to date. Unfortunately, CyanogenMod closed down last month, so I don't know what will happen regarding future updates to the I9505. May have to jump ship to Lineage OS.

Bought a new sim/micro ad card holder off eBay for £2.50 and watched on YouTube how to change it. Was pretty straight forward.Just be careful when changing SIM cards over.
im facing sim card problem in my I9505
even though I have insurted sim it shows insert your sim
now what should I do to solve my proble
I love this mobile. ItÂ’s really nice piece of equipment to have in your hand with almost all options.
It is such a superb phone! i agree totally that at this time, at this year of 2016, this still being a powerful phone! very beautiful, with is weight so light and thin design! Some of the most androids that were released till now do not have a quarter of the things that s4 has!! I agree too, that this is more beautiful than s5! Please Samsung release 6.0 to s4! :)
I have come across this handset recently. It's something I got it since someone didn't want it. It's in perfect working condition.
I am planning to install windows mobile OS on this. I personally have been against such idea of changing OS. But with a 'surplus' device on hand, I am willing to experiment. I have plans for it in next few weeks.
I would surely share my experience post changes.
But is there any one who has tried doing it and has an experience to share?

ace, 01 Nov 2016My phone does not support 4g lte networkYou may have s19500 and not the s19505.
Anybody else use this with Cricket and at the one year mark it died, but only on the tower near home? Calls just went to voice mail all of a sudden, and I guess I was the only one with a problem. In a different city it worked fine. The phone would move to 4G and off of LTE like it usually would when a call was coming in, but then wouldn't ring. It was a great phone until that happened.
