How to replace iPhone SIM card

The only thing that you must have is a SIM eject tool or simply a straightened paper clip or any pin-like object hard enough to push-open the SIM tray. BTW, this SIM eject tool came with the box when you bought your iPhone.


Here are the steps:

First, refer to the image below to locate the SIM card tray. To pull it out, you need to insert the SIM eject tool (or the paper clip) on the tiny hole on the top of the iPhone 3G or on the right-side of the iPhone 4. Push until the tray pops out.

NOTE: The tiny hole found on the top of the iPhone 4 is not for the SIM card tray, it is a microprhone. Please do not insert any thing in there.


Once the tray pops out, pull it out completely and replace the SIM with any SIM you want.


When you're putting it back make sure that the SIM carrier logo is facing the front of the iPhone. Don't force it if it get stuck, just pull it out again, and gently put it back.

cd tray eject button doesn t work - paper clip trick doesn't help


the "paper clip trick" isn't a trick. It is a MANUAL way to open the door far enough to pull it open and remove the contents. Straighten out the clip. Place it through the tiny hole just above the eject button. Be sure to push it straight in. When you feel resistance, push HARD. the door should open about a halt inch and allow you pull it all the open. It will not open automatically from a paper clip.

how to fit sim card to ipad


Insert the tip of the SIM eject tool or a straightened paper clip into the hole of the SIM card tray on the side of the iPad.


Press the SIM eject tool or paper clip firmly into the hole until the SIM tray ejects.

Remove the SIM card from the tray, if necessary, and place the other SIM card in the tray.


Push the SIM card tray back into the iPad.

i want to remove my Sim from iphone 32gb how ? and replace another Sim


To do this, you must have a SIM eject tool or simply a straightened paper clip or any pin-like object hard enough to push-open the SIM tray. BTW, the SIM eject tool came with the box when you bought your iPhone.
Now, on the top of the iPhone, in between the power button and the headphone jack, you'll find a fine oblong-shaped line which is the SIM tray.
To pull it out, you need to insert the SIM eject tool (or the paper clip) on the very tiny hole you'll find just beside the headphone jack. Push until the tray pops out. Don't worry, this is completely safe, that is the only way you can pull it out, just be gentle with your iPhone.
Once the tray pops out, pull it and replace the SIM with any SIM you want. When you're putting it back, remember that the tiny hole should be closer the the headphone jack (or the carrier logo on the SIM should be facing the front of the iPhone), and make sure that everything is completely aligned. Don't force it when it get stuck, just pull it out again, and gently put it back.

a dvd was inserted into my toshiba qosmio right before it broke, and is due back to video store, is there a manual way to remove it?


The dvd drives usually have a small hole on the front. Carefully push the end of a paper clip into the hole and the platter should eject.

apple iphone.where abouts do i put my sim card in the iphone?


Use the supplied tool or a straightened out paper clip to eject the sim tray in the top of the phone. There is a tiny round hole in the top of the phone that you gently push the tool(or paper clip) into to eject the sim tray. Load your sim card and slide it back in and you're done!

Good luck,
