Hello,

Some days are better than others...

I managed to break several of the small metal pins in the sim reader, don't ask me how but I did it =(

I unmounted the phone and it's really just a small circuit board linked to the motherboard with a single ribbon

I have googled for where to find this spare part but no chance so far

Would you know where I could find this part and help me revive my Nexus S ?

Thanks for your help

Did you find a solution ? My sim card reader (or sim card tray) is broken too and I can't find the replacement part to buy...

Couldn't you guys just do a warranty claim? It shouldn't break that easily unless you were messing with it.

I can't claim warranty since it's "customer induced damage" : needed to insert my sim card into an Ipad. Not willing to lose my micro sim adapter, I put it in the Nexus S without a sim in an tore the pins when taking it out

Moreover, I live in Europe and Samsung has after-sales per region, if not country. they would'nt accept an US purchased handset anyway.

Didn't find any trace of this spare part on any other site but globaldirectpart and it's still showing as "Coming soon"....

I am in Brazil and the phone hasn't arrived in here so Samsung Brasil don't touch it.... despite the fact that they are going to say that this is not covered by warranty.

I did not find anywhere else too...

How about insurance then? But I'm assuming you don't have that either or can't.

Good luck to finding the part though. Globaldirectpart seems to have a tendency of inflating price.

Don't have any insurance for my phones and it wouldn't work either cos I damaged the phone myself =)

I don't really mind the price since it would cost me about 50 euros including shipping due to the exchange rate between $ and . Just missing my phone a lot and tired of waiting =)

Yep! We still waiting for the replacement part to be available... I read about a guy that replaced it with a Galaxy S part... but I did not figure out how.
