Default Not Reading Sim Cards!!!!!

Okay I got this i717 and could not figure out what's wrong with the sim card slot. I've never posted on a forum before but I'm stuck.

Things I've tried
-went back to gingerbread from ics
- bought a new sim card slot board and put it in and still the same problem(insert sim)
- cleared cache from clockwork and titanium
- flashed different radios and modems
- tried different ROMs
I know longer know what to try, I also would like to note that it has an imei and baseband so its nothing to do with efs. It just won't read sim cards and I know its not the hardware because the micro sim words and its on the same board. Please help me out. I'm using an old slide phone now.

I know you say its not the hardware, but that's sure what it sounds like.

When you say micro sim, have you tried a regular sim in the slot?

I made a typo' "micro sim" was suppose to be "micro SD card", and I know it sounds like the hardware but I was so sure that when I replaced the sim and micro SD board it would work because everything on the phone works fine except for the sim, I've read around and the only solution I'm seeing is to send it in but that's not an option for me. And yea I just have a normal sim card from at&t that supports hspa

The only thing you can try short of replacing the motherboard is to take your work apart and double-clean the contacts between the motherboard and sim/SD cards board.

Did it ever read sim cards or did you buy it this way? Did you use Odin to reinstall the factory Gingerbread ROM?

I'll try what rangercaptain said but yes it did read my sim card when I bought it and then every now and then would randomly say insert sim and normally a reboot would fix it but it finally just cut out completely and that's when I bought the new board but it still said the same thing
