Sim Card tray stuck

Mar 11, 2014
Just received my Xiaomi Mi3, but the sim card tray is stuck. I tried to force it open but it's not working, didn't want to force it hard, afraid it might spoil. Anyone experience this issue?

I've already send an email to Xiaomi, but I thought I'd post here to see if any xiaomi mi3 user is having the same issue.

I had the same, pushed a case opener tool in between the tray and the back side and I got it open. (the back side can bend quite a bit) Strange though. Now after I did this it works as intended and opens ok with the provided tool.
