SIM card is not related to signal searching in any way. Sync your clock by connecting to a wifi, reboot your phone, if still not working, cellular subsystem problem.

Sim Reader could be possibly bad try opening the phone and cleaning the Gold Contacts with a little electrical grade rubbing alcohol make sure to have the device off when doing so let try and reassemble the device. If this doesnt fix the issue A new Sim reader on the main board would be nessasary.

I think you are correct that the sim reader is the problem, not going to start opening an iphone lol. I tried an eras iPhone and it won't go further than Hello and country/language settings. So just got a new one.
