SIM Tray Stuck, lever not working, paperclip can't pull it out
I am having extreme difficulty freeing the SIM card from my iPhone 4. Bent the Apple SIM Tool in the process. Opened up the back and found that the lever has been dislodged (an empty hole where the pivot is supposed to be at).
Tried pulling it out with a makeshift paperclip hook but it hasn't budged even after applying enough force to cut my fingers off.
I'm comfortable with disassembling the %#*@ thing but the logic board cannot be removed with the SIM tray in place. Seems like a catch 22. Any advice please, guys?
