That is a common issue which cannot be fixed. It's a manufacturing glitch.

Hello.

My Samsung Galaxy S4 keeps showing a message that says "Unable to Detect SIM Card" & it will tell me to restart the device. It constantly tells me almost every few minutes. I have also already changed my SIM card & uninstall apps that may be the cause, it still says the same message. Will this hard reset my phone?

Thank you.

Yes...Take a backup and reset the device.
