I have a chance to get one of these phones but the seller says missing sim tray. Is there a way to just tape the sim to the terminals. What can i do? I have an iphone sim tray from a 3gs would that work? What is a compatible HTC sim tray i could use?

An iPhone 3gs Sim tray uses mini Sim and the first has a micro so that's out of the question. And tapping it in probably wouldn't be such a good idea considering there's allot of space and it would be moving all the time. There is a OEM light blue HTC first Sim tray http://m.ebay.com/itm/141123998651?nav=SEARCH&sbk=1
But in my opinion that's too much. The phone closest relating to our is the one mini
http://m.ebay.com/itm/151182582693?nav=SEARCH&sbk=1
Which is cheaper but there's no guarantee it would fit. Then there's the One & Nexus 4 which could also be good candidates for Sim tray swapping but there's no guarantee it would work

Hope I could help

Well i don't think the tray would be a big problem, I had a normal sim and I cut it to micro sim.
I cut it a little too much and I was afraid that it would be moving around in the sim tray but no worries.
My point is that you could probably even get it working with a makeshift tray or something

Look. I got my first, brand new, no contract, and in box for 150$. About two years ago I got my old lg for 120$ no contract. So I got a really good deal.
Cullularcountry.com is awesome. I'm sure an HTC first will pop up there sooner or later. If not get a atrix HD for like 170$ no contract brand new. Or an HTC one x or anything else with no problems.

As far as a Sim tray goes. Use thin pieces of wood that they use on like clarinets and other instruments. Quite thin and light. Like taking it and carving out a slot for the Sim? Not sure how good it would be but quite possible. Otherwise idk haven't come up with anymore ideas.
