    Hi all!

    Been getting sketchy coverage on my current provider for the past few weeks so I got a new SIM today to try out for a bit to see if its any better.
    Put the paperclip in the sim tray release hole and heard a click, then I noticed that the damn thing had snapped totally flush with the top of the hole and is stuck in there entirely.

    Anyone got any ideas how to get it out?

    A pair of tweezers?

    Or anything that can grab onto that little bit of paperclip...

    Other than that, I've got nothing. Sorry.

    I'd take it to an Apple shop and see whether they can take care of you by either removing the tray or, better yet, replacing your iPad. I'd rather try that first over risking scratching the iPad while trying to remove the broken paper clip.
