    Hi there,

    A month or so ago, I bought an iPhone 4S which had an issue where the SIM card wouldn't read sometimes. When I received the phone, it would not read the SIM card at all.

    I went down to a repair shop recently and got them to replace the SIM card reader. They got it to read for about 30 seconds and then they declared it as ****ed.

    If it's not the SIM card reader, what could it be?

    EDIT: I can't use the phone as an iPod either as it's stuck on the activation screen.

    It looks like you need to take it to Apple if you want it fixed.

    If the repair place replaced the reader, it didn't work and they told you it's f#**ed then I wouldn't bother any further.
    It's not worth putting good money into bad.
    The 4s is old, slow and abandoned by Apple.
    Get something newer that works.
