How to disable “SIM card not activated” notification?

In an earlier content, we talked about what Xiaomi SIM Card Activation was about. There are certain cases this activation process fails and leaves you with an annoying and persistent error notification but do not worry, we will walk you through how to get rid of it step by step.

Root makes everything easier, therefore the solution also becomes easier. If you are a rooted user, you can use Titanium Backup app or any kind of app that has the feature to disable system apps, go into search box and type a part of the name of the app that you wish to disable, which in our case, typing sim would be enough. In the list that comes up, tap on Xiaomi SIM Activation Service and click on disable button and this will get rid of the annoying notifications and failed attempts at activation.

Methods to disable SIM activation without root
