    What do you use to open it? I normally find a paperclip works perfectly but you have to be quite firm with it, dont be scared and it should pop open

    Find something that will fit tight in the hole, while pushing in see if you can pull it out. I use a thick toothpick cause mine sometimes won't pop out either.

    If you really have slivers of paperclip roaming about inside your iPhone I would suggest you turn it off, open it up, and get them out! And the tray too. Those pieces cause one short, and your iPhone's dead.

    The old fashioned way, with a guitar pick (or other slim non-conductive plastic instrument). There are several guides on how to open up the iPhone. You can check www.hacktheiphone.com for a couple of these guides.

    Apple won't even look at the phone unless you can show them an AT&T wireless contract to go along with it. If you're with AT&T, you're fine to have it replaced.

    Hey there, I find that a thumbtak works the best for me. Maybe the sims card somehow popped up when it was put back in, now it's preventing it from pulling out?? But, try a tak, maybe that'll work?? Good luck!

    I'm not sure what steps Apple in the UK would take if any. I would give it a try, they can't hold to the same policies at within the US I would think.

    thats what i think as well because as i went in to the o2 shop today and asked if i want to buy an iphone and not get the contract but unlock it, it would void the warranty from apple and o2. but if i wanted a repair i would be able to take it back and pay for the repair.
    but do you think this would apply to my US iphone?
    plz help!

    did any one try those guides on how to open an iPhone?
