OK so, this is probably something that has happened before… but never has happened to me because I’m SUPER careful with my smartphones. I have never smashed a screen but one time I gently scratched the bezel (near the home button) of an iPhone 7 256GB which I later sold to a Chinese guy on eBaY. Well the phone was in pretty good condition so he said the scratch didn’t bother him. I treat all my Tech with respect. I am not like those teenagers that get mad at things and throw their possessions around just to prove their point or whatever. Tech costs money, I must be careful with it all.
As you can see above, the SIM card tray is a very small thing in your phone right now that is easy to lose, once you pull it out. So yeah, the thing to do in this situation is to check to see if your phone is still under warranty. If all you really need is a small piece of plastic I am sure the manufacturer can send you a replacement if your phone is still under warranty.
Below is another place to find Sim Card Trays (or Expandable Memory Trays), all you do is go on eBaY (for what ever country your from, so for me I am in Canada, so I go to eBaY.ca), and search for your phone’s name and search for the term “Sim Card Tray”. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S9, so I searched for “Samsung Galaxy S9 Sim Card Tray”, and that worked for me. As you can see below, I found some Sim Card Trays for my phone but searching for that term. The trays are only $5, but if you try the method above too if your phone is under warranty, you can get one for free quite possibly.
The last resort is a hard one. Selling your phone on eBaY for parts. I’ve done this before, because I’ve had phones I could not do anything with.You might as well try and do this as bringing it to the electronics recycling center is not going to do anything for you, your not going to get any money for recycling your tech. Some places give you money for phones but it usually requires the tech to be in good working condition. Below, you can see an example of something in bad condition.
Anyways, if you lost your SIM Card Tray or Expandable Memory Tray and managed to find one somewhere for cheap, leave a comment below on what you did to get one. Like I said, even though these trays are so small, you can easily loose one if your not careful. Thanks for reading if you made it this far. Cheers.
