Hello

So I took my Sim Tray out to make a note of the Serial and IMEI number of my iPhone 3Gs.

Now, this is no excuse but I'm really jet lagged and obviously wasn't focused and I put my Sim Tray in backwards and put it in slightly, just enough for it to be locked in.

What can I do? I've rung Apple Care and they want 145 for the repair. This is a tiny piece of plastic which has barely entered the phone so I doubt it's damaged it internally.

Please help me out here, I'm panicking!

This is my first post.

Oliver

Do you have a suction cup and really small screw driver?

All you need to do is remove the the 2 screws at the bottom of the iPhone, Then with the suction cup place it down by the home button and gently pull up the display, Be careful because there 3 connections is upper right hand corner that need to disconnected, Once that's don't you can completely remove the display and dislodge the damaged sim tray.

Thank you so much, you just saved me 145!

I think I owe you a drink, sir.

Will be a good reference in the future.

My iPhone's little operation was a success and it's now connected to my network again, thank goodness!

Once again, thanks!
