I forgot to update this. Customer insisted on reflowing SIM card directly to PCB, as per their previous CEM. It worked. No deformation of the SIM card - assembly works - records data to SIM card.

Note that using hot air reflow type (rework station)didn't work. Pasting and running through reflow oven was required. Very surprised.
