    When I was trying to put my SIM card in, I stuck the SIM tool into the hole next to the tray. I did feel something sort of pop. Does anyone know

    1. What is that hole for?
    2. Did I just damage my phone?

    To know for sure we need to know what phone you have, but it was probably a microphone. Any of the phones I've owned have 2 or 3 small pin sized holes that house the microphones.

    This depends on the shape. If the hole is in a tray shaped outline, that is probably your SD card tray, if not, it may be your sim tray, if nether, then it's probably a background noise canceller to ensure your voice is loud and clear to the other person on the phone even in noisy environments.

    The mic hole and the SIM pin hole on the S7 for example are practically identical in looks. But seems fairly obvious since you can clearly see that the SIM hole is in a tray that pops out.



    You can clearly see the seam around the sim tray and the phone, meaning it pops out. The mic hole has no such seam/border.
