    Default Caution with the Eject Mechanism

    I just learned, the hard way, that the fact that USING sim solutions, IMHO, doesn't harm your iPhone physically isn't quite entirely true.
    I've been trying out various sim solutions since they just started popping out. I broke my sim eject mechanism a while ago trying to eject the tray. What happened is that the pin used to trigger the ejection snapped. I recently got the part replaced by my iPhone repair guy but while he opened up the phone, he discovered that the base of the sim holder soldered to the logic board was a bit damaged due to the extra force administered to the eject trigger used to eject to sim+sim hack. The design of the iPhone 3G sim holder is quite tight compared to the first gen iPhone and becomes extra tight after you put in a sim hack. The repair guy said mine was not an isolated case.
    So before the ultimate software unlock comes out, I might suggest using some tape over the edge before inserting the sim tray and eject by PULLING the tray out by the tape.

    I am at the stage where the Sim tray is stuck fast and I am scared to try with a pin etc anymore. I asked the supplier Gevey adaptor how to overcome this issue and was told that it might be worth taking the back off of the phone and accessing the Sim from there. Has anyone tried this method; will it work?

    My sim eject mechanism is broken as well. I highly suggest having a piece of tape stick out of the tray to help guide the tray+sim out. I did not, and got my try out by inserting a jumbo size paperclip into the sim eject hole. The gauge of the wire is just thick enough barely fit into the hole enabling you to pull the sim tray out. Hope this helps.

    I broke my sim mechanism as well. I'm lucky because the guy who sold me ismartcard manage to get my sim out, then do it with the tape solution. good thing is i do not pay a single cent for that part, but sad thing is i travel quite frequent and so i have to change sim very often. not to mention looking at the damn tape sticking out of a very nice phone.... so to everyone out there, please be extremely careful when dealing with the sim mechanism...its just a much cheaper and wacky solution compared to the 2G iphone.

    Yes it works as i done it last night
    However ifs the not back that comes off, its the front as the screen is acttached to the back to you have to be EXTRA carefull as i managed to ruin an area of the silver trimming on my iphone (Its hard to notice the damage though as its very small)
    But once you take it apart you have a whole view of the sim card tray making it easy to remove.
