PinePhone Pro and PinePhone Community Edition Different SIM Card Trays
#1
I took my broke pinephone pro in to a cellphone repair store with a community edition basic pinephone to hopefully get the sim tray replaced from the community edition to the pro.

The tech said that they were slightly different and moved some stuff around.

How true or accurate is this?

He said he was looking around to see if he could find a replacement tray.

But I thought the main boards and modems were basically pretty all the same, only difference was storage size.

so did i understood correctly. repair shop replaced pinephone pro mainboard into pinephone regular's chassis? repair shop did not replace sim card holder?

spare parts are not compatible between pinephone regular and pinephone pro.

i don't know all the details of sim card holder, but sim card holder from micro to nano might be compatible in both models.

some external accessories are compatible, like keybaord case.

As far as I know, recently produced PinePhone Pro phones take a nanoSIM, the regular PinePhones still take a microSIM, so yes, the SIM card trays are different.
