Nexus S sim trouble (sim tray / initial install)
So I bought a never before used Nexus S off of Craigslist. I'm pretty sure that claim is legit. It looks brand new and I met the seller at their very expensive home in a very fancy neighborhood. And the phone does indeed look and feel brand new.
When I got it home. There was a black square in the sim slot. I had some difficulty pulling it out. When I finally managed to get it out and put a sim in, the phone won't recognize the sim card. Did anyone else have trouble with this placeholder - I can't find any pictures of it online - all the unboxings I have found are fake (e.g. the sim is already in during the unboxing - lame). The one on mine is basically a square sim frame - an odd design. I think the pins in the sim slot are gone / messed up. I guess I'll call Samsung and see if I can get it fixed. If they don't, I don't think it'll be too hard to solder pins to the leads.
Needless to say, I'm not to happy about this. Anyone out there see anything like this?
