hey,thanks for the reply. Quick question before I open it, do you think Apple would check it for me really quick even though it's not under warranty?

iFixit has a good walkthrough for disassembling a 3G, I have used it to replace my Dock connector & my wife's battery.
Just be careful not to damage the cable that is connected via a latch on the top right of the board.
IIRC, once you have separated the screen, you should be able to remove the SIM out of the tray.
