I just read another thread where someone mentioned that in the iPhone 5, there is an ESD protection circuit that, when damaged, will inappropriately turn off the SIM card detection function. So the answer to your question is "Yes". If you need an estimate on getting it fixed, I would recommend reaching out to iPad Rehab.
