Default [Q] Failed to register sim every now and then

My S4, i9505, pops up an error every now and then. It says "Unable to register simcard on network. Reboot now. When I reboot everything is fine, but it happens perhaps three or four times a day. There is no pattern to it, and I have ordered a new sim. After installing that the problem still happes.

The phone is out of warranty so I looking at options.

I see that the simcard/sd-reader is very simple to replace.

Do you agree with me that the simcardreader is probably to blame? What else could it be?

If you are on one of the latest KitKat firmwares, I've read some days ago that it's a software issue and it will be (probably) fixed when Samsung releases 4.4.3 for our S4

Got a source for this? I'd love to know it was a software error with 4.4.2 - because then a rollback would fix it!

Thanks.
