    Default [Turbosim] STUCK in slot

    1.1.2 OOB

    Cut everything like planned, only very difficult to insert

    finally got it in and F**CK, can't get it out anymore.

    Of course, no sim recognized.

    Help, I'm begging you.

    First, remain calm or otherwise you'll do silly things and damage your phone (been there).
    The best way to get it out is to use a thumbtack or similar, insert it into the hole and gently push and wiggle the tray out. Just make sure you're applying enough pressure; preferably hold the phone in both hands and push it against your desk (with the thumbtack in the hole and between the phone and your desk, obviously). Works every time for me.

    just happen the same to me and I have tried clips, thumbtacks, a small scissor...nothing works...I just order iphone tools so I can open it up but since the simtray can not be remove and all guides say that it is the first thing to remove to open up the iphone I do not know what to do. I can not bring it to an apple store to get it repair right?

    OK Relax.

    You do need a Thumbtack as someone else suggested - or something thin AND strong AND easy to push HARD.

    But, we found that at the same time as PUSHING something in the release hole - you should try and hold the combined SIMs IN against the SIM Tray. (So you don't break / damage the piggy-back SIM device or the chip mounted on it.

    We found that a VERY THIN mechanics BRASS feeler gauge worked very well for this.

    We first had this problem with week 47+ iPhones and 2nd Generation devices and early HyperSIMs.

    No problems anymore with 3rd and 4th generation devices.

    To make sure that ur turbo sim is properly inserted just put double adhesive tape behind the sim and the frame.cute a small piece of tape and stick both ends of ur sim and Turbosim to make it more stable.i've en-counter same probs.before.
