    Default sim tray doesnīt pop out itīs broken!!
    Hi there,
    I bought yessim to unlock my 16gb 3g iphone. I inserted both sims following the instructions. It was hard to make it get in; after, when I tried to take it out pressing with tool, it wouldnīt pop out. It couldnīt get the sim out so I opened the iphone and took the sim out...but the little stick that ejects the tray it s no longer there.
    So now I can insert sim cards, but canīt take them out unless I open the iphone.

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

    Did the yes sim work? The new iphones were not designed to hold these and the sim card. I tried with a Turbo Sim. What I noticed is that every time I pushed the paperclip down to eject the sim tray, it was like it was going into a void. Like nothing was there. I just wiggled it around a little and the sim tray ejected slightly. I then used my finer nails and patience to wiggle it out enough to were I could grasp it and pull.

    I moved the sim tray back and fourth slightly and was able to get it to come out partially. I pushed the Turbo Sim out from the bottom with my finger while pulling. Eventually, the tray came out, but the cut SIM card got stuck in the phone. I then has to take a slightly bent paper clip to fish the sim card out.

    Bottom line...these are a piece of s**t that don't work. I didn't have to take my phone apart, but if you get the tray out, don't do it again.

    Iīve tried many times with the clip, but no sign of sim tray at all. The only option I had was to open the iphone, otherwise I wouldnīt have done it. Inside, it seems that a little piece is missing, the one that should make the tray pop out.

    My tray doesn't eject anymore.

    I use a very thin screw driver, put it in and pull the tray out.

    Does anyone know if you can use the previous generation iphone sim tray? They seem more sturdier than the new plastic ones.

    i hope they make a black metal sim tray mines bro to but can still be used,the little circle broke,it is not really the sim adapters it is the crappy cheap sim trays,also do what i did take a knife put the tip into the circle and pull upwards.

    I've had this issue as well. You can use a paperclip and curve it so you have a hook (actually more like an "L" shape) on then end. when you insert it, point the hook towards the sim card (there is a space there where the sim card slants. It will allow you to get a hold of the sucker and pull it out. works like a charm.
