If so, can it affect the workings of a mobile phone?
The software on my HTC Sensation XE, completely out of the blue, started to generate regular random error messages when trying to use various functions.
I sent the phone away to HTC for repair so reverted back to my HTC HD2 and that has now developed an issue where it no longer rings when a call comes in. Previously, I have never had an issue with this phone.
The only common factor to both these phones is my SIM card, hence, the question.
