I tried a paper clip in the SIM eject hole. (Galaxy S21+ 5G) I hit a hard stop and nothing happens. (I also mistakenly tried the other (microphone?) hole and popped something.) Do I have to disassemble the phone to get the SIM carrier out? There was something sticky around the SIM carrier on the outside, but I would have at least expected to feel a spring tab move

Hi there!

Have you tried using something a little finer, like a pin, to eject the SIM card tray? Sometimes there's a decent amount of resistance before the SIM card tray pops out.
