    Hi,

    I have only repaired 2 or 3 screens before and my friend has passed his iPhone 4 to me and upon opening it up I found this (https://www.dropbox.com/s/2kkzkpc1h9gw5tk/photo.JPG) small piece and a screw loose in/around the sim card slot. Any ideas where its come from??

    He said it was repaired by insurance company, but it looks like a novice has had a go! when he got it back it wouldn't turn on. It needed a new battery!

    Thanks

    That is the SIM card ejector mechanism
