    Hello,
    does anyone know how to fix a Z30 with a defective SIM-card reader? Or where to buy a spare part? For the Z10 there are a lot of spare parts available, but for the Z30 I could not find the SIM-card reader module. Or is it perhaps the same than in the Z10?

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Doubt it's the same as z30 has a push in type that's spring loaded. How did you manage to break it? , use a nano sin with a micro sim adaptor? Ouch......

    Z30, and yes, it's a bit on the heavy side..., but the Carbonate case is Killer!

    I did not break the SIM-card reader but I have an alluring offer to buy a used one with a broken SIM-card reader for approx. EUR 330,-/USD 450,-. I can do the soldering work for the new SIM-card reader by myself - but only when I can obtain a spare part. Otherwise it will be just my Playbook 2.0...

    So you have the tools for it? A radio shack soldering iron ain't gonna do it, dude.

    Any updates on this? I've got a Q10 with a broken SIM-slot pin and fixed it with a small wire. Working for over a year now.

    Today i'll get a Z30, in superb condition, but with a broken SIM-Slot...

    I wouldn't bother; the IMEI on the phone has probably already been cancelled rendering the phone inoperable regardless if SIM card.
