iPad Mini SIM Tray

Hi Guys,

I appear to have lost my black iPad mini SIM tray, and I can't seem to find anywhere that can help me replace it?

Alibaba, eBay, Amazon - unless I'm not looking hard enough.. I just can't find anything.
There's only 1 authorised reseller in my area who doesn't stock them, and an Apple Store myself is too far away, and to deliver it to me costs a fortune.

Does anyone know anywhere that can help?

Thanks!

Seems like you weren't looking hard enough. I went to check on e-bay and typed "iPad Mini Sim Tray" and I gets good results.

I have looked hard enough, unfortunately eBay states that shipping is 14.52. Which is a little expensive for an item so cheap.
Hence, why I'm not buying from Apple Store because delivery costs so much too.

Ideally, I'm looking for a cheaper alternative.

OP mentioned iPad mini, not iPad 2. So I don't think those will fit on the ipad mini.

they all have micro sim card tray, aren't they? if they do then it will work right? just asking if this will work, too.

No, the iPad mini uses the same "nano-SIM card" as the iPhone 5. The full size iPads use the older micro-SIM cards.

iPad mini uses nano sim.

Scouring google for parts isn't that hard......

There are other links but I'm sure you can find them on your own by looking.
