Default Missing Sim Card Tray

Hey everyone i'm I just got a Nexus 4 from a friend and noticed the Sim card tray was missing. Is there a way for me to use the phone now with out the tray? I'm trying to find a local cellphone repair shop locally to see if they have any Nexus parts but i haven't been lucky so far. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Whatever you do don't insert the SIM without the tray. You will instantly regret it because:

A) mobile won't see it so you won't have network
B) it will be hard as **** to take it out again.

I did it once by stupidity and spent 20 minutes sweating and battling with 2 needles to get it out.
