My iPhone 5 started saying 'Sim Card Failure" in July 2013. It used to happen 3 or 4 times a day. I was on holiday at the time so I didnt really mind. When I got back home, I got a sim swop and that seemed to help. Until two days ago when the phone started saying "Sim Card Failure" again. Happened twice three times in the space of 2 hours. Is this a hardware fault or sim card issue? I bought the phone online and we only have an iStore (not an Apple Store) in South Africa. How does one get this fixed?

iPhone 5, iOS 7.0.2
