sim reader is screwed


i just encountered this site and u guys are doing a fabulous job.

i have an issue with my iphone from past 3 months.

i did not used it because i dont know how to fix the p[roblem.

the problem is that one of the strings in the sim reader is displaced from its actual position. when i insert sim tray the bottom part is broken and was struck in there. i can see the metalic part of the reader through the vent.

i think replacing sim tray will resolve the issue but i cant find a tutorial to replace it.

i really appreciate if some one could post a tutorial for fixing this.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

well, have a look at the teardown - it should help.

at you see the mainboard with the sim holder - should be fixable if the original contacts are still ok, but you my not be able to remove the sim card depending on your fix.

The sim card does not activate when I put the sim card in the phone. I have replaced the tray with a new one but it still does not read it? Can you help me?
