Default [Q] HELP - My new phone stop reading my SimCard

My new phone stop reading the SimCard after 2 using days ("no simcard" reporting). I am sure It is not a software problem but on the other hand the SimCard socket hardware look like new. Unfortunately I don't have warranty... Any idea how to fix it?

Kernel : 3.4.103-AEL-v5.7

well if the sim card is working ....looks like a problem in the sim card socket, try to clean the contacts there , like with a pencil eraser , if that does not work you may have to take it to a service center

Maybe some compressed air into the socket?

Mate ,

Do not give up just yet , take it to service center ( does not have to be Samsung) it may be just a cold solder point ( loose contact) does not seem to be something terribly bad.

The sim tray is pretty easy to replace and the part is quite cheap (couple of £) YouTube a video on replacing it. Just need a screwdriver and a hair dryer to soften the sticky holding down the current tray
