Current State of PIne Phone Pro
#38
I've had my Pinephone Pro for many months. It has literally never worked for me as a phone, so it's really just a toy that I don't use very often. Maybe it's the SIM slot, maybe it's a software issue, maybe it's my working SIM, who can really tell? I've tried to figure it out myself and tried to get help on these forums. It's not the easiest thing to troubleshoot. I've found that nobody on this forum is interested in helping. I'd recommend against it.

It seems to be a bit like the self assembly furniture problem - to some it's so obvious that they don't see why the instructions are needed at all, while others can't understand what the instructions are trying to tell them. We need someone who didn't understand, but managed to work it out, to explain what's wrong with the pictogram above the socket, and the further explanation already in the wiki, and make the necessary improvements.

I can tell you one problem. Most of your users have never seen a SIM that isn't a nano SIM. Literally every phone sold in the past ten years has used Nano SIM, so the SIM port probably doesn't even look like a SIM port to most of your users. That could actually be the entire problem, not the diagram. I understood the diagram, the problem was I had never seen an elephant size SIM.
