Something stuck into SIM tray holder of my iPhone 4.

Maybe there is something inside my iPhone 4 SIM tray holder because the SIM tray dose not close nor, in fact, slide inside and close properly.

Must I open and disassemble the whole device to reach the tray holder or is there any easier way to take what is inside off?

Thank you.

The only trick I know is to dig whatever is in there out with a dental pick, if that doesn't work then you would need to remove the motherboard to remove it.

I would guess you had the motherboard out of the phone and it's either not replaced correctly or something is under the board that wont let it seat correctly in the phone frame.

Maybe I did not explain myself well. I am quite sure that something entered the slot because I can not put the SIM inside or close the tray. I can not take it out from outside. Am I compelled to dismount the phone or is there some tricks? Thanks.
