[Q] Crazy, but antempting sim repair for the heck of it...and questions
So, I got a Samsung Infuse. Super duper cheap. I bought it knowing there was an issue--the last owner ripped the sim card out and tore off four of the pins on the sim tray. So I unsoldered the top of the sim tray (the metal sleeve), and added solder to the broken pins to try to get the sim card to get contact.
Well, no good so far. The phone won't see my AT&T sim card. When I boot the phone, I just try to hold the sim card pressed firmly against the tray---but no luck so far.
I was wondering, though--what is the purpose of the other row of pins (circled in the photo in red)? They don't seem to be connecting to anything...and what about the other two pins (circled in blue)? I notice when I short them, the phone reboots.
Can anyone else here take a peek at their Infuse and tell me if there's some other issue with the other pins? I'm trying to figure out why they're there.
