Hello All,

Accidentally I inserted SIM ejector tool inside the S21 Ultra microphone hole. I also applied some force in an effort to push out the tray. Although, the phone is working OK so far. Did I break something inside? Microphone / Mesh / Water protection. Kindly clear my doubts.

Thanks!

Probably not.  You're not the first to do that ;)  From reading here the speaker isn't directly under the hole but to the side so it's likely nothing happened.

Fast forward to 1:45 in this video.  Remember that you're looking at the back of the camera.  The speaker hole is on the top left where the speaker is on the right.

I poked the microphone hole right next to the SIM card slot. Any idea about that one?

Same. Usually the dust/water protection on a device is very close to the opening so I would guess that you punctured that.
