My SIM card is not being read by my Samsung Galaxy S3. What can I do?

My SIM card is not being read by my Samsung Galaxy S3. It says insert SIM?

When your phone asks you to insert a SIM card when one is already inserted, it's often the result of a defective SIM card. Turn your phone off, take out and reinsert your SIM card, and turn your phone on again. If your phone still can't recognize your SIM card, you will need to get a new one. Go to your carrier's nearest store and swap the SIM cards. If your phone recognizes the new card, you're set to use your phone again. However, if your phone still doesn't recognize the SIM card, there is a chance that something is wrong with the contacts inside your phone. Unfortunately, this will require a repair. Call Samsung's customer service to schedule a repair for your phone. If you're under warranty, you will be covered and you won't have to pay anything; if you're not under warranty, you will unfortunately have to pay for the repair. Depending on how much it is, it may make more sense for you to purchase a new phone.

I have a Galaxy S4 that needs a replacement card and I want to use a Galaxy S3 one in the S4 that I have?

A friend of mine who is with AT&T has a S4 that says no SIM card found and that it is having issues. So I have an old S3 that he could take the card out of for him to use if it is compatible. the only difference is that my phone is with sprint and his is with AT&T
