    Do you have pics of it? I've never seen that before.

    If all else fails, take the back off and manually pop it out. 2 screws in bottom, slide the back up and then you can gently push the sim card tray out.

    *Edit* - I searched a bit and some people have said that's a demo phone. Maybe someone has some more info on that.

    That isn't right...I say go to Apple and get a new tray with a pin hole. Don't open the phone up just for that, it isn't worth possible damaging the device/voiding the warranty for.

    Only problem with that is the device could possibly be stolen. From what I've read, that's a demo unit for a store. I highly doubt Apple will just hand him a new phone but I could be wrong.

    Question for OP though. Have you checked the serial number through Apple's site? Just curious if it will come up as normal through a warranty check.

    Yeah I am thinking that it's stolen like he said.
    Run the serial number first.

    I know it's stolen.. Well I knew after I bought it off craigslist.. I'm stuck with it .. I doubt there's warranty ;(

    I opened it up but the iPhone 4 design is nearly impossible to get to sim tray without removing all the components ;(
