    Pretty much all in the title, did a frame swap and popped in the sim card tray (the one that came with the new frame) and it doesn't sit perfectly flush, one side is raised a little.

    Also now I can't pop the tray out again, the removal tool doesn't seem to push on the eject button inside.

    Is this a common problem? It's not a big issue now, as I don't NEED to take out the sim, but I just worry about when I come to buy the iphone 5 and sell this one, I will need to get the sim out.

    My brand new iPhone4 is the same, the tray sticks out a tiny bit at the eject hole end, and is sunk in a bit at the other end.

    I have my phone in a case, so it doesn't bother me too much.

    My 4S's sim tray is slightly raised on the side where the eject hole is and slightly sunken in on the other side, I wouldn't worry about that.

    Not being able to remove the tray- now that is an issue I'd be worried about.
