You will need to replace your SIM card tray. You probably broke the SIM reader. If you don't do anything to fix it you can't use it on mobile data. It will be a WiFi only tablet.

iFixit doesn't have a guide for this. You will need to find one online or refer to the teardown to replace it.

Easy way:

Find a plug-in new sim tray part

Harder way: ( I am about to do this):

Carefully desolder sim tray shield,

find some unusable old phone matching inner socket

transplant it in place of the broken one

solder back
