    May have caused damage to it.

    Most likely microphones. If they're damaged the water resistance could be compromised.

    Yes, you may have poked a SIM key into a microphone aperture. Test whether the ambient noise cancellation is still working.

    Word is that Samsung actually noted on the peel-off sticker on the screen which hole to poke on the bottom in order to access the SIM tray. I guess they needed a notation on that to not poke the ones on the top too!

    I did the same thing to my S21 Ultra on the hole on the bottom next to the SIM card tray.
    I tested if it's the ambient noise cancellation still works by calling someone while I had another another phone playing youtube right next to my mouth. It seems like it's still working.

    It was quite ambiguous to see on the black phone.

    Which is why Samsung printed the guidance on the peel-off on the back of the phone. https://www.sammobile.com/opinion/ga...or-user-error/

    My understanding is they are both microphones.

    Thank you Mustang. I hope I didn't damage anything. I tested the ANC and pro video. they sounded normal. Fingers crossed.
    but the Sim card pin did penetrate about 0.5 cm...

    I see that too, right next to the usb port. That made me nervous as it was so close to the sim tray.

    I also don't see a microphone on the camera as indicated on the diagram. But top and bottom make sense for stereo.

    Normally I am pretty cautious. But I was tired. Even though I saw the sim tray, my finger was covering the actual sim tray hole. therefore I missed and poked the wrong one. I think it would be an easy mistake for most users when they are not paying attention...

    I thought I read the mic holes had a 90 degree angle at the bottom to prevent folks from accidentally poking the mic's?

    Yes I see that from the second picture I posted where they show front and back of the device.

    So is there a microphone on the camera hump? Would make for 3 microphones if there was.

    I'm sure plenty of employees at carrier stores would do the same. Plus once you hit a certain age it may be tough to see the tray outline.

    All,

    Accidentally I inserted SIM ejector tool inside the S21 Ultra microphone hole. I also applied some force in an effort to push out the tray. Although, the phone is working OK so far. Did I break something inside? Microphone / Mesh / Water protection. Kindly clear my doubts.

    Thanks!

    I poked the hole mistakenly right next to the SIM tray. The article generally talks about the two top holes on S21 series.
