Whenever I drop my phone I see the "SimProcessor" service spinning up...

I suspect that designing reliable spring contacts isn't as easy as it seems...

Yeah, phones aren't designed to have robust SIM slots, they're designed to be thin, so they use very low profile SIM cradles that are not robust to impact.

The trade-offs for a high vibration environment are very different.
