    Hey Everyone, I Bought An Iphone From A Friend For 150 Dollars And It Was Working Great, In My Attempt To Jailbreak It And Use Tmobile On It I Followed Directions From The Internet On How To Take Out The Sim Card Using A Paperclip.

    Well I Put In The Paperclip And It Make My Screen Pop Or In Other Words It Went In Too Far That It Made The Screen Show The Paperclip Puncture. Nothing Big Happened Because The Phone Still Has The Screen Good. Then I Kept Moving It To Be Able To Take Out The Sim Card And No Success. Then I Read That U Had To Put It In On An Angle So I Did And Finally It Did Come Out. But It Already Passed Over 2 Hours Of Me Trying To Take It Out By Inserting The Paperclip. Well Now I Finally Got It Out But

    1. The Headphone Jack Dont Work, So I Cannot Use Headphones.

    2. The Power Button Is Also Non Functionable

    3. The Hold Button Is Not Working.

    I Kept Trying To Insert The Paperclip To See If It Fixed It By Itself But Only Sometimes The "headphone Volume" Icon Comes On. And Its Full Volume. Also If I Keep Putting The Paperclip In And Moving It, It Keeps Turning Off The Screen And I Have To Unlock It To Keep Trying To Mess With It. Then It Finally Gives Me The Option To Turn Off The Phone.

    Well It Was Working Fine With Only External Sound, And Now This Morning All Sound Is Gone, Only Vibration Works. And I Again Tried To Mess With The Paperclip And It Doesnt Do Anything But Turn Off My Phone.

    You Guys Have Any Tips On What To Do? The Phone Works Good The Video And Everything It All About The Sound And Power.
