ahh the notorious "sim not read" error message
well what you have is a is a faulty contact issue from the phones brass 8 or 10 pin points to the sim card pin contacts inside the phone itself and also too, your service provider has without your knowing it, from time to time have uploaded numerous software data updates to your phone, and often old sim cards, if not replaced occasionally, your sim card has a compatibility issue to the new data being sent to your phone. You basically need a new sim card. Usually and often if the phones has suffered a lot of abuse (from physically dropping to the ground and natural elements like tempertature, rain, exposure to cold and moisture, which is a big culpret) those brass contacts,located inside the phone, that are on the edge of the sim card (when you turn the sim over you see them) get particules in between the contacts causing the notorious "sim not read" or even the notorious " sim not found please insert sim".
