The SIM card will try to push this film out. That's where the tweezers help. Gently lift the SIM card and lodge it in again. This basically creates a short circuit between the joint where the pin would have been and the place on the SIM card where it needs to connect.

Super simple solution without soldering. But, you still have to re-do when you swap a sim card.

The SIM card is a tight fit and hence the film will stay.

Hey do you have any pics of this?
