    Ok So you know how like when you get a case from Switcheasy and they give those little silicon plugs to protect the dock and headphone jack from dust and crap? Well I was looking for some on ebay and a lot of the headphone jack ones have a little... metal plug thingy that can be used to take out the sim, my question is like... is that safe to use? I mean to plug that in the headphone jack? it looks like it would like puncture something lol

    I don't think that metal piece will cause any issues, I don't think its long enough to puncture anything in the phone. If you are that worried I am sure you could always cut that metal piece off and still use the plug.

    Radtech sells a similar plug and I've never heard of anyone having an issue with theirs. Looks similar to the one on ebay.
