    Hi, I had just recieved my LG G2 recently from Verizon Online. I turned it on and it had trouble authorizing the sim card that is pre-loaded into the phone. Very quickly, I removed the sim card, and tried a different one not realizing that a sim card tray had also popped out from the phone. So now I have the sim card completely stuck inside of the phone with no way that I can think of to take it out. The phone DOES work surprisingly, but I feel that it will eventually lose contact within the phone or possibly damage it. I brought it to the Verizon store and they told me "no can do without insurance." I refuse to pay insurance, so is there a better option for me to remove it?

    Wow. It wont shake loose?
    I dunno. You may have to hunt down the repair manuals online and figure out how to remove the back cover.

    That sucks. Try using tweezers.

    Good luck.

    The back cover comes off with a little work... Just get a couple of plastic wedge tools and start around the SIM slot. Be very careful and diligent. I took mine off to install a skin. I didn't want any water seeping into the device.

    Good Luck!
