Try cleaning the connections of the SIM slot with a folded piece of paper dipped in etanol or put a couple layers of sticky tape on the back of the SIM to see if slightly more pressure on the contacts will help. You may need to replace the SIM slot assembly

The SIM slot assembly is available - HERE is one example and there are listings on eBay also.

The sim slot assembly I linked above is a plug in part. Are you are wanting to swap only the SIM contact from the assembly?

When you put the sim in the S3 you might have to sometimes import the Contacts from the Sim. Please follow the steps to import the contacts from your SIM.

Go to Apps through Home screen.

Scroll to Contacts, then tap on it.

Tap on the Contact tab.

Tap on Menu key.

On the pop up menu select Import/Export.

Tap on Import from SIM card.

Tap on Phone.

Tap on Select all.

Tap on Done button.

Finish. Now all contact on your SIM has been successfully copied to your Phone.
