Swapping SIM cards will only delete what is saved to that SIM card. Use the ES File Explorer to move items to the SD card as well as put as much as you can in other helpful cloud backups like Google Photos, Google Drive, and Google Contacts. Even if you transfer just to the SD card, you will want to unmount and backup on your PC in the event that something goes wrong. If all else fails, when you get the SIM card, have one of your flagship stores from your cell carrier help you set up the new SIM.

I want to reset my phone but I got a lot of files to transfer, one by one is just totally tiresome, just want to have a back up and have it back when my phone is OK?

Unmount the SD card and copy to your PC. You could also try removing the SD card completely before a hard reset however, if something causing the restart loop is also on your SD card a hard reset will still need to be performed with the card.
