My brand new Lumia 1020 needs to see the doctor

I destroyed one microphone when setting up the phone last week. Somehow I was too distracted to get it right. Can you see the mistake I made?

My only consolation is the Dilbert principle: we are all idiots, just not all of the time.

You tried to push the SIM in the microphone slot? Kind of? :-)

I didn't just try. Since the tray would not come out, I pushed really hard.

Volker Weber, 2013-09-19 09:19

Hah! I did the same with my first iPad, though i pushed not that hard ;-)

My test unit had a sticker above the mike, which I did not (yet) remove. Lucky me. And good luck to you for a quick repair or swap!

It was a relatively dark room with a lot of people. I removed alls stickers because I knew what I was doing. Right? RIGHT.

i am going to send it in over the weekend and hope for a quick repair.

Ouch!

Wenn Du Interesse an einer schnellen Reparatur hast, dann kann ich bei einem Geschäftspartner von mir anfragen ob die das schnell zwischenschieben können. Die sind zertifizierter Nokia-Reparaturpartner (http://www.martinez-messel.de). Soweit ich das mitbekommen habe sind die schon auf alle neuen Lumias geschult und haben die Ersatzteile vorrätig.

Ah, so ein Ärger - doofe Sache das. Wobei das mit den identischen Löchern nicht ganz glücklich gelöst ist, beim 920 ist das besser (http://i-cdn.phonearena.com/images/reviews/123403-image/Nokia-Lumia-920-Review-009.jpg).

truly NOT a pokayoke... :-( if the operator in the Nokia factory had to set up the sim, they would have made the hole differently because of the high scrap rate...

Had to look that one up. Poka-yoke is a Japanese term that means "mistake-proofing".

Volker Weber, 2013-09-19 15:29

yes - so pokayoke would have been „mic-hole smaller than simtray-hole and simtray-tool bigger than mic-hole“... and Nokia would have proved this, if the Sim would be assembled in the Nokia factory...
