I went to Carphone Warehouse (biggest UK phone retailer) the other day with a friend to get a micro sim and the advisor told him to never use the adapter as it can break the pins. If they are saying this then they must have had a ton of people with this issue come in - I.e. DON'T DO IT!!!

All you have to do is send it back to LG they will fix it free of charge. That's what happened to me, I claimed that when I pulled my sim card at the advice of an att rep because of bad call quality the sim pins came loose, just "act new" if you know what I mean and they will consider it a manufacturer defect. Hope this helps

...I think in the case above where the module has been hacked to death, this excuse will not work...lol

I just setup a repair ticket for my g3 through LG hopefully they will fix it as ive been having a tough time finding someone local who could do the work. I originally bought mine from someone who had pulled the pins out with an adapter and i was able to use the phone for a couple of months by placing pins from another phone in the spot of the old ones and sliding my sim card in but it has stopped working now and i cant seem to get the pins to touch correctly now so im forced to go with a warranty.
