Motorola Photon Q (XT897) SIM mod

Original version is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1929143
Here's how my first attempt looks. Second one (next week?) should look neater I hope! It worked first time :)

 
The blue sleeve looked neat but was far too wide to stay. Although the pads are tiny, the pin pitch is huge so shouldn't cause any issues soldering unless you don't see the resistors just inside where the can used to sit

The tape is there for extra electrical insulation and to hold the springy wire in place... The SIM slot is soldered.

I removed plastic up until the antenna, and it fits with no room to spare
