    Hi guys just new here. I know this has been posted several times or more, but my sim reader was damaged and my problem is I've had it replaced and it still will not work. Im not too clever with phones and software etc so any help or a point in the right direction would be great.

    Whoever did the repair didn't do a good job. Try to resolder all the connections and see if it works again
