That's no good.

You may have to pay to get it removed by a authorised service repair centre?

Re: Micro sim inserted wrongly

Ouch.. Having a Tab A and some SIM's to play with I went and stuck a sim in the SD slot.. To get it out I found a few decent repeated taps popped it out.

 

Now of course this not an exact science but only how I got it out. Yes I was lucky maybe as it took only three consecutive hits on the LHS bottom edge (first 50mm) on a soft timber surface. I held the tab about 100/130mm and allowed (followed the fall lightly holding onto the tab((using the camera as the holding point)) so it hits squarely onto the surface) its weight creates the inertia to pop the sim out.


Cheers,
Dave
