Hello,

If your SIM reader is damaged, there are several pros who can replace it. You need to contact a pro who does microsoldering. The SIM reader is easy to replace by a pro.

I advise you not to try it alone because you need equipment and good welding skills.

Good luck

Unfortunately, since the SIM pins are damaged, you will need to replace the Logic board. This is very expensive and you will lose all of your data unless you back it up to iCloud. Getting a new logic board is starting from scratch. I recommend that you back up all of your information with iCloud. Make sure to replace it with a good part, you want to watch out for scammers who have iCloud locked logic boards trying to make a quick buck. Best of luck!
