Can you see any damage in the port? If so try to post a picture of the damage.


The image you uploaded is way to small, unfortunately it looks like your going to have to replace the SIM card port to get that working. I believe its soldered directly to the motherboard on that phone. It's not going to be worth the repair.


Thank you so much

You could just open up the phone and put the connection straight again. I have put here a link also, with what you can change the motherboard / open the phone up

Thank you for the suggestion and link. Upon inspection, one of six copper connections had been ripped out. I have an appointment with a knowledgeable friend who is going to attempt to solder out the old and try to solder in a new. Again, many thanks
