How to replace iPhone 4 sim card reader?

I have an iPhone 4 with the sim card reader broken. It was unlocked with a turbosim and the owner forced to extract the sim damaging one of the contacts of the sim reader.

I have the part to replace, but I´m not find a way that convinces me.

Any ideas, suggestions, thanks...

I´ve get the part from Luna Commerce (China). And I found a guy (I´m live in Argentina) that can repair iPhone logicboards. He could succesfully solder the sim card reader and the iPhone is alive again.

It is a very difficult job since the contacts are so small. The sim car reader is very cheap but the job is difficult. I would suggest you find a repair shop that can fix it. Surely the iPhone is worth it. I know these guys do wonders (located in UK) www.ipaqrepair.co.uk

Desolder the existing card reader by use of a heat gun. Then you will use a solder iron to clean up the 6 pads. I use desolder alloy to coat the pads and once the pads are dressed up I reinstall new sim card reader and using a heat gun on low heat melt the reader into place, use a little no clean flux to aid in the solder flow. Make sure to use a good 63/37 solder to anchor the 4 mounting pads. The desolder alloy is electrically conductive and has a very low melting point so you will not damage other components with to much heat, but is very brittle and needs the lead solder to make it hold better.

What if 1 of the soldering pads was removed..can it be fixed ?

Yes, with a lot of skill, it can. In most cases, it's a real PIA to repair removed soldering pads. Sometimes, the pad can be connected using a jumper.
