    I just got my M3i from Dealxtreme and the spring mechanic for popping the microsd card is broke lol. I have to pull it out using tweezers.
    Is there a way to fix it? or will it damage it permanantly if I just keep pulling it out manually?
    thanks

    Where intellect matters
    It's best to just leave the spring out, there should be no harm from manually putting it in.

    my advice would be to not try fixing it because that was the last thing i daid before mine stopped working entirely.

    My Acekard 2i's spring broke as well, and I've been removing the microSD card by pulling it out ever since. Despite that, it's been working fine without the spring for almost a year now. So I don't think that removing the card manually causes any damage, or at least in my case it hasn't.

    In fact I lost a TF having experiments in my M3iZero because the TF jumped out when I tried to push out it. So spring is not required at all I think.

    Ahh cool then, I don't mind pulling it out manually as long as it won't damage my card.

    thanks all.
