Help! I love my S4, but it's not reading my SIM card.i

My phone won't read any SIM cards, I've tried a few. Att said it was a bad sim card reader so I had it replaced. Didn't fix the problem. As far as I know, everything else is still working fine. I know it's old, but I love my phone. Can anyone help?

not the sim card, its something to do with the sim IC , if it is an i337 or m919 i have yet to find schematic, when i get that job at work I don't take it on as I don't know any solution. Look at a new device as even repairing it at this point if you could find someone who REALLY knew what to replace and could do it I imagine they would charge $100-$150 and at that point you might want to pass it on to someone who could use it as an iPod or just sell it for the screen and what not.

Update (01/26/2017)

yes it is something that happens to some but not all s4 and is a common issue. If you google no sim s4 you will see lots of talk about it. If you do have a micro sim NOT a nano sim with an adapter that has helped some of my customers. I understand about the waste aspect. It is a shame this is still a great phone. Great fit in my hand and decent camera, etc. you're welcome, and all the best!

Is that something that randomly goes bad? Just curious. Thanks for your help, I figured it was going to cost more than the phone is worth if it could even be fixed at all. Other than this issue the phone is in excellent condition, I just hate to see it go to waste! Thanks again!
