Circuit Board sim ejector damaged

This morning I tried to eject my sim card tray out but I realized that the tray would not pop out.

I could have damaged the internal circuit board sim ejector. Now my sim card is stuck inside forever.

Anyone encountered this problem before?

Thanks in advance.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You can pull SIM Tray out using a small pin. Find very thin needle or pin, with tweezers or similar bend 1mm or less of the tip into a J or L shape. Insert this into the small hole of the SIM Tray about 1mm or 2, get the tip to catch and pull the SIM Tray out. If this fails you will have to open up iPhone and try to fix from the inside.

Hi thanks for your solution.

I have a spare sim ejector pin and got it bended, and it does worked.

All I have to do is to position the bended pin into the hole and tilt it until it created a tension then I pulled it out.
