How do I replace the sim reader in an LG P880 after I broke a prong?

i was inserting a micro sim in an adapter but it fell out. because the adapter has a recessed space for the sim. i had inserted the adapter far enough for the sim prongs to press up into the recess before i realised the sim was out of place. i tried to remove the adapter but it was stuck. instead of calmly thinking about what i was doing i got &%#*^@ off and yanked it out. the prongs came out with the adapter. i was able to bend two of them back in to position but one snapped off in the process. any ideas on a repair solution?

colroo1, it is soldered unto the board. It is available, just search for part EAG63193601. Of course, it will depend on where you live:-). So I would suggest to disassemble the phone, de-solder the old SIM reader and replace it. Not an easy job, but doable. Check this video if you need help with the disassembly. Hope this helps, good luck.

thanks for the speedy reply . i was able to order the new SIM reader from rounded and the disassembly video was very helpful. i will disassemble the phone and de-solder the SIM reader tonight and wait for the new SIM reader to arrive 3-5 days, hopefully. cheers
