    Got my nexus 4 yesterday, very happy with the device except for the sim tray. Eject and insert my vodafone sim card into the phone without any problems. However i tried to eject the sim tray to put a different sim in but the sim tray just wont come out.

    Any recommendation on what i should do?

    Many thanks.

    You need that little tool to pull it open. Or a pin.

    Dang. You may want to bring it in to where you get your mobile plan to see if they can help. They do this all the time. Or call Google and speak to them they may be able to help or send you a new phone. Totally sucks.

    called Google yesterday, gona get replacement in 4-5 working days so i guess 6th or 7th of Jan but their service really pissed me off. I had to called them three times to get the correct replacement link to purchase the Nexus 4 (the previous two they either send me replacement link to nexus 7 or 10).

    You really do need to push quite hard, perhaps much harder than you might think...

    I pushed really hard, my finger hurt so bad and the eject tool bent so i guess the sim tray stuck not because i am doing it wrong

    I have gud news. I managed to eject the sim tray with HTC Sim Eject tool Genuine HTC One X, One X+ Sim Eject Pin - 72H06531-00M - Components - Spare Parts . So if someone struggle to eject your nexus 4's sim tray than you probably want to purchase this HTC one as i find it much easier to use than the one come with the device.

    Thanks. After i watched the youtube video sent by ChrisXe i ordered the HTC sim eject tool and it came 3 days ago and it was effortless trying to eject the sim tray i as just need a lil push. I just remembered just now and thought i would share the resolution if someone might be struggling using the LG's sim eject tool.
