    Sim Ejector Tool Broke!

    So I was using my ejector tool to open my sim tray but it snapped off in the hole!
    Now I cannot open my sim tray at all.
    Any ideas on how to open it or get the end of the tool out of the hole??
    I took it to the apple store and they couldn’t offer any help

    Can you maybe get some tweezers to grasp it with and pull it out?

    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    Now, my iPad does not have a Sim card slot but as a woodworker, I get occasional splinters and have a really fine pointed tweezers (magnification helps) for removal, like the one in the attached pic; so I'd agree w/ Poisonivy - you just need the right one. I'm not sure what the 'ejector tool' is made of, but if magnetic, then a small magnet might work - just a thought. Also, I guess if you could find a really small cocktail straw that would fit into the hole, it might enclose the broken tip to allow removal, but not sure if there is such a tiny straw?

    Just curious though - if I had a Sim iPad, then a 'paper clip' in my wallet would probably be my choice for a removal tool - free, easy to replace, and not breakable? Dave

    I agree about the paper clip.
    It works just fine.
