I have not used my Apple ID in a while and would like to resume using it. The Apple ID in question is protected by two-step verification. Unfortunately I have lost access to the linked SIM card which was used to receive verification SMS.
In the absence of the SIM card, I am unable to access the account page, neither am I able to perform account recovery. It is not possible for me to regain access to the SIM card.
How do I regain access to my Apple ID in this case?
