    Hi everyone,

    My SIM card keeps "falling out" of the clip on the phone. The clip that keeps the SIM card held down occasionally "unclips", and the SIM card comes away from the place its supposed to be in, meaning I can't make calls or do anything that uses the SIM, so I have to take the battery out, press the clip back in and re-start the phone.

    Any suggestions for a solution?

    A tiny blob of blu-tack?

    You'd have to be careful it didn't get mushed into anywhere it shouldn't.

    Tried that, the heat from the battery just "melted" the blutac to the point it was a gooey mess. Going to try a bit of cellotape but I think that the battery's gonna cause anything sticky to loose its grip.
