Broke the sim card reader
My 9900 has been sitting in its box for over a month now since I got a new phone, but today I took it out because I wanted to do something on it. I cut my sim card from regular to micro-SIM, and I left the sim adapter inside the phone. So when I took it out today, the adapter was inside, and as I was removing it in order to insert another regular sim card I have, it wasn't coming out because it seemed as if it was stuck to something. I tried forcing it a little bit and I ended up breaking one of the four pins that read the sim card, you know the four golden ones.
I didn't actually break it, but it's sort of like bent and not sitting correctly like the three others. I tried making it sit straight like the rest of them but it's still not reading the sim card and says "Insert SIM Card".
I believe it is pretty clear in the picture what I am talking about.
I am assuming I'll need a new sim card reader/house, so is it easy to replace? I still have warranty till 2013, should I just give it to the BB service center and pay for its repair over there or is it going to be too over priced? I am assuming if they fix it, then the general warranty stays in tact?
