Ip 5 reception question

I seem to have shady reception on my 5, my wife has great reception on her 4 in the same spot. Could a SIM cause this issue? I would rather not loose my flawless iPhone and have to have it replaced. So does anyone know if the SIM card can cause this type of reception problem.

It very well could be a sim card issue. Go get it swapped before changing out the phone. ATT does not charge in cor stores for a new sim card.
