    I have an iPhone 3G unlocked for tmobile on 4.2.1. It was working fine until about a week ago when the sim card fell out of the iPhone sim card tray. I had to pry it out using tweezers and nail scissors. The sim card tray broke, so I had to buy a new one. Now, when I put the sim card in, it reads "no sim card installed." does anyone know why this is? Its not the sim card, as it works in the phone I'm using currently. I'm assuming I broke something in the phone, but I was curious if that's repairable? And if so, what it was that broke? Thank you!

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Sounds like the sim card reader inside the phone is damaged.
    Try bringing it to an iPhone repair place.
