Haha thanks for the responses, are you totally sure? I'm pretty positive its the sim card slot, it has a small little metal housing which clips over the top. Much in the same way my Nokia N95 does. I'm on the UK network T-Mobile, the sim basically is a 6-point sim i think, does the 8800 take 4 pin or am I been really dim.
Can someone post the exact dimensions of their sims if poss? then i can get this thing nailed and stop being so livid about having just shelled out 40pounds in customs charges!
Just to clarify here, and I'm absolutely positive, you basically take the back off the 8800 and the sim card slot is directly underneath the silver embossed square on the back of the phone, above the battery.
This is really really odd, can any confirm the exact size of UK sim cards and whether they've experienced this?
