    i've gone through the case of braking the sim card insert copper's after yanking out my sim with a micro adapter. I've just bought this phone less than a week ago, and i've loved every second of having it and really want to fix it. Does anyone have a broken pre 3 than i can use to replace the sim card insert ? ill happily pay for postage and pay for the pre 3 ...just love it too much to let it go that easily

    Are you saying you had a microsim in an adapter and pulling it bent/broke the sim pins? If so then OUCH and tell me which adapter so I don't use it. I once got one stuck in there but carefully used a pin to push the sim pins in and extract the adapter.

    not finding many solutions to this problem, i'm going to try and repair it myself

    i was thinking, if i was to solder a sim contact from another phone onto the missing ones on my pre 3 (just thought i'd mention, the 2 broken contacts still have a little millimetre sticking out) would that repair it anyhow, or does it have to be the specific Hp pre 3 part?

    they're a wiper contact of some sort - almost certainly a standard part if you can find the source - I don't mean the wipers themselves, but the whole sim slot.
