My wifes S II just lost signal. When I try to view mobile networks, I am told to put a SIM in the phone.

I did the usual stuff, reboot, reset sim, battery, charge, etc. No dice.
I took out my SIM and put it in my wifes phone. No signal. I put my wifes SIM in my phone, full signal.

Looks like the phones modem is fubared. I rooted my phone and install SHOstock3 v4.0. If I do the same to my wifes phone, do you think that will alleviate the problem (not recognizing the SIM)?

First you need to find out if the problem is firmware related, or hardware failure. The test would usually be to wipe and install stock. Assuming the phone is stock now, that would mean re-installing stock after a wipe data/factory reset performed from stock 3e recovery.

Rooting and installing SHOstock3 may be an equally effective test.
