warped logic board damaging sim card

I have just rebuilt an Iphone 3GS, replacing the back cover, front LCD and digitizer and battery (original fault was a damaged screen and a blown battery), but on re-assembling the phone I noticed the logic board was slightly warped. Now when I try and insert a sim card in the phone, it is difficult to slide the tray in and it is scoring a line down the sim card as it is inserted. Everything else working on the phone and so it seems a shame to just junk it, my question is this. Is there any way to try and flatten the board out again, my thought is with steam but is this likely to cause more damage?

Steam would Destroy it i would think. it will get into places you cant reach to clean and dry it. The only thing i would think of (last resort of course befor throwing it) would be Heat gun it to around 180 to start and somehow try to flatten it. sorry i couldnt have been more help. Does the Sim No work when its pluged in? also have you tried just levering the metal plate out a bit where the sim inserts?
