Hi! I think you should also mention that there is a sim-card slot dummy holding a motherbord, you can not lift it when a holder or a dummy is inside. it should be poked out with a pincer through the hole one the side of a motherboard above the slot itself (it do not eject on a spring like a normal sim card holder)
