    Hey guys,

    sorry for being stupid.
    I knew that I have to be careful with the nano-to-micro-SIM adapters and the Moto G slots.
    So I tried with the empty adapter first, very carefully, and bam, it was stuck.
    Is there any way to remove it without destroying the pins?

    Images are attached.

    Best regards
    Riceb

    If you can find something very thin, flexibe, and about 8mm wide, you *may* be able to slide that between the pins and the adapter. I've seen that tried 3 or 4 times -- and it worked once. The other times, pins were damaged. It typically takes disassembly to remove the adapter without damage. You may want to ceck into a repair shop.

    Good luck

    Hi Ecm,

    short update on this:
    I tried it with different flat suttf like a thin metalized sticker cut to the correct width, but had no chance to stick it far enough in.

    I then took it to a local repair shop. They offered to unsolder, remove, and resolder, but the price was uneconomic.

    So they tried to remove without unsoldering and two pins broke. Anyway, the slot still works.

    My conclusion: Never use the G2 with SIM adapters. In more recent phones, they said, the slots do not have pins, but other more robust contacts.
