Default [Q] Broken sim slot

Still don't know how, maybe I have insterted my sim in the wrong way, but this morning i couldn't take it out from the simcard slot. After taking it out, i noticed that the sim is now scratched. Since then, my phone doesn't read my sim anymore (tried with 2 different ones) I guess something's broken in the simcard slot. Does anyone know if it's expensive to replace it? I use an adapter for nanosim, I guess that's the problem (which won't be anyway unde warranty I think)

Hello Gibihr,
If I'm not misstaken tge simslot is mounted on the motherboard and to replace it you'll have to replace the entire motherboard.

Hope that you'll get your phone back up and running,

I've just got the Z1c so I don't know if the sim card reader is a part of the MB and certainly hope not. I had a similar experience with the xperia Go where I damaged the sim card reader but trying to insert a micro sim with an adapter instead of a normal sim. Anyways the phone was fixed at the customer care center by replacing the sim card reader. They charged me though...the equivalent of 20Euros...not too expensive. I hope your phone would be fixed the same way.
