    I've got a HTC Desire HD. The bottom cover is a little mangled. It's the bottom part where you push/slide open to put the SIM in.

    I've looked on eBay - wow... why so expensive??

    It's ONLY a piece of plastic!

    Cheapest must be about

    It's not just a sim/SD card cover, it's also the aerial for the phone.

    You can see in the image below how the phone uses the cover as an antenna, the same on the battery cover which I believe is for Wifi.

    Very, very old word now generally replaced by "antenna" in the U.S., but still aerial in the U.K. ;)

    They say "lift," we say "elevator." That sort of thing. :D
