Been fixed woteva I'm so frustrated with this and previous blackberry's I've had eg Z10, can anybody advise me were is the best and cheapest place to have my entire sim card reader replaced asap? So made up my mind already too return to relable iphone 6 on its realise and sadly never look back

Re: faulty sim card re

This usually happens when you use a sim card adapter in the device. Inserting a cheap adapter can damage the sim card pins and make the device unusable. You will have to find a local shop to fix it.
