Is my Lumia 520 ruined or what?

Is my Lumia 520 ruined or what?

Hi everyone! Hope that someone could help me with this! I got my brand new Lumia 520 the other day, quite fascinated with the UI and everything. As I first had iphone 5, I needed an adaptor for the nano sim to fit into Lumias micro-sim slot. Everything was working fine, until I wanted to switch the sim (back to my iphone - needed to check something), the sim got stuck into Lumias slot. I tried to push it out, until I managed to do it, but the contact areas on the slot itself got harmed and crooked! 

 

So now, to the real question: Is it possible to fix the contact area of the sim-card slot/contact areas, or should I just forget about this phone working properly? I called to "experts" in Nokias here in Malmö, Sweden, and they told me that i´m screwed since the sim-card reader is hooked to the motherboard on the phone, and any repair on it could kill the phone! 

 

Any suggestions? Should I just order another one? (it´s currently on sale) 

 

Thank you in advance!

Ironically as it would be an expensive repair with motherboard replacement at Western European labour rates, it may certainly be cheaper to purchase a new unit.

Certainly from UK (throwaway wasteful society) perspective brand new SIM free example http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00BM24PMY/ref=asc_df_B00BM24PMY14455771?smid=AV174NO3SHKWF&tag=reevoocom...

compared with parts/labour wasted travel time/fuel to Care facility (2 journeys) there is no contest.
