Unfortunately, the SIM card reader is attached to the logic board and cannot be replaced independently. You might still be able to troubleshoot this though. First give the phone a reboot if you haven't already. If you you're only having a problem with one SIM card, try cleaning it's contacts with a pencil eraser, as they may just be dirty or corroded. If you're having a problem with multiple SIM cards, try the pencil eraser first, then try a network reset (Located in Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings [in iOS 7]). If this doesn't work, try restoring the phone with iTunes. If you're still having a problem, try taking it to the carrier store and seeing if warranty will cover repairs. Good luck!
