lower speaker not working & sim card intermittently not detected

so my back glass is broken, the lower speaker stopped working and sometimes my sim card is not detected. (this is the first time i have damaged a phone....not involving water.)

finding parts is almost always a pain, while finding a back glass and lower speaker is one thing (a source for these parts would still be appreciated).... i don't know what part needs to be replaced for the sim card detection failure.

any help would be great, thank you in advance.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Samsung phones are pretty fragile!

The speaker not working is probably a connector that's come dislodged/unconnected and the sim card tray not working could be either the actual sim card its self is damaged or the tray has been disconnected in the drop too! Hope this helps.

stuart gaither makes me wonder how it got damaged. Well it’s time to take it apart and check the components according the flowchart. Something like this video should help. Of course, you always need to check connectors and flex as well. Let us know what you find and if unsure, you can always post some pictures with your QUESTION. That way we can see what you see. Sorry, it’s not searchable so you will have to look for the components on the image. If I find a different view I will post it instead.
