Default My sim card reader is broken

Hello,

I tried to insert my sim card with micro adapter into phone but I inserted sim the wrong way round. One pin in now broken and phone doent detect sim card any more. Sony saying they wont repair it due to user error so no warranty repair. They said that it needs the whole new mother board for 300USD but I think that it just needs new sim card reader. Now i have found a replacement sim card reader and ordered it form ebay. I also found http://www.xperiablog.net/2013/09/15...ssembly-guide/


I was just wondering however if anyone had attempted it, from the tear down guide it looks like the sim reader is attached to the logic board so a replacement reader wouldnt exactly help.

Anyone with any advise would be greatly received

Regards
