Broke part of wifi socket - is it a problem?

I was wondering if I need to replace the sockets if I only broke a small piece of the black plastic off? It was one of the straight pieces covering the metal socket. Just a small bit. Might it be an insulator? Does it matter? Please say no! Here she is...I'm so ashamed...

Is this a good question?

It should still work regardless of the plastic missing. As long as the pins are straight then you're good.


Now THAT's what I wanted to hear. Thank you! No bent pins at all.

I hate to say it, but the only way to insure that the socket will perform right is to replace that board. The part that is open wi most likely be intermittent at best. These little wonders are great until you have to get in them. I do not know of any method of reliably securing that portion of the socket. sorry. And the only place I found it was around $200 for the 16GB model.

Thanks, so sad. I think I may try a small piece of electrical tape and see what happens. I'll share the results. I feel like an idiot with no patience for breaking that thing.
