Exclamation [Q] Phone not reading ANY sim cards (Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket i727r)

Alright, so as usual i try and solve all my issues myself and avoid posting on forums unless im at a total loss.
Heres whats going on, I have a Samsung Galaxy S ii Skyrocket (Rodgers) i got from a friend. Im with Virgin mobile and the phone is with rodgers. The phone is unlocked and worked perfectly with Pacrom for 2-3 weeks. now it is not reading ANY sim cards ... Heres what ive tried
-Returning to stock rom (using odin)
-Had someone look at sim contactors (fine)
-Called both Virgin Mobile (said to call rodgers)
-Called rodgers (transfered me to virgin mobile)
-Restarting phone (removing and inserting sim)
-Factory reset (pacrom)

Nothing has worked and no one working at rodgers or virgin mobile will help or don't know anything. soo im asking you guys, any idea on how to fix this? Or atleast whats wrong with it?

Is imei also reading 0 or null? If so you might need to fix the efs partition.. Otherwise I'd say the sim reader is dead.

Fortunately, it's really easy to replace. no soldering required. A replacement is listed on Amazon for just over $13.
