Default sim problem

Hi, I`ve had my s4 since the uk release and never really had any problems, but 2 weeks ago the following message appeared on screen (no data connection is available until a valid sim card is inserted), i restarted the phone and it all worked for around a day, then it reappeared, restarted again but this time it didn`t work, so i did a reset, it then worked again for a day,then it came again but no matter what i did it wouldn`t work, so off it went to Samsung, a week later it came back all repaired,until the following day when it started doing it again, done a factory reset again it worked for around 4 hours then no sim, so it`s gone back to samsung again for repair. has anybody here had any problems with the sim card connection on their s4?

Yeah, that would have been my guess. I've had a SIM fail and that's about how it went
