My moms iphone 3GS keeps saying no sim card installed i have tried cleaning the sim card and any time that i press where the earpiece is or on the top of the back then it says sim card not installed and the only way to make it work again is to reboot it or take the sim card out and then put it back in. Does anyone know what the cause is?

It's probably a loose wire or faulty solder point. Perhaps the tray for the SIM card is warped. You can send it to iResQ to see if they can repair. They will provide diagnostics and quotes for free.
