    Hi everyone,

    I'm hoping that someone can help. In a moment of complete idiocy, I put the microsim in its adaptor but didn't put that into the tray. And now it's stuck in my 3gs! The sim is coming loose from the adaptor, and preventing me from removing it. The nearest apple stores don't have any time until Thursday, when I'm at work and can't go (they are over an hour or two away).

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? I was just completing its (legal) unlocking so my friend could buy it.

    Its a very easy fix,

    If you have some small screw drivers and a suction cup

    Simply unscrew the two screws by the dock connector
    Place the suction cup on the screen by the home button
    Pull the screen up gently.
    This will expose the sim card holder.

    but be careful when you open it cause you can damage the #3 connector real easy.
