clean the sim card and try again, try a different sim card, also check with phone company that imei is not blocked?

is he having a laugh? I think the best thing to do here is take it to another shop for a second opinion or open it yourself to see if there is any damage. Look at the sim slot/tray http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/iPhone-4-... step 13..you can see the gold prongs that the sim contacts onto, make sure they are straight, not flattened, dirty etc. At the bottom is a fine gold wire that moves when the sim inserts. You also need to take a look at the antenna connection from dock to logicboard...it may be this he is saying is damaged. A good phone repair shop/electronics shop should be able to fix that if they have the right tools. It's hard to accept that a phone otherwise working is beyond repair unless he has shown you the damage...
