On the top of the iphone right next to the ear-phone socket is a little hole.. and next to that of course is the drawer for the sim-card. Simply insert a pin/paper clip or similar into that hole and the drawer will pop open.. some people say they found a tool in the phones box for the job but I know nobody here in England that ever had one in the box... a pin dose it fine anyway

Need to open my iphone to put in the sim card


Use a paper clip, bent open. Stick the end in the tiny hole at the top of the phone where the sim card slot is. Tilt the paper clip at a slight angle and pull up to remove the sim card holder and sim card if installed.

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.


Here's an image for your reference:

IPhone 4s is coming up with invalid sim or no service


I just had the same problem. I used a paperclip to open and remove the sim card tray. I blew on the card and the opening to clear off any dust. After re-inserting the card, the device said "No SIM" for a moment then registered and regained service. I hope it helps!10_22_2013_4_27_57_pm.jpg

How do you open the iphone to insert SIM card?


You can not open the iphone to insert a SIM card. There is a slot at the bottom of the iPhone and the SIM card goes in there. When you purchased the phone you should also have recieved a special gadget that you actually push into the bottom of the phone so that you can remove the Sim card. That is the only way to access the SIM card on the iPhone... The actual phone can not be opened..

How to put sim card to the iphone?


SIM card slot is in top of iPhone. From iPhone Manual:

If your SIM card was not preinstalled, you must install the SIM card before you can use iPhone.

Install the SIM card:
1 Insert the end of the SIM eject tool into the hole on the SIM tray.
Press firmly and push it straight in until the tray pops out. If you don’t have a SIM eject tool, you can use the end of a paper clip.

2 Pull out the SIM tray and place the SIM card in the tray. The angled corner of the SIM ensures that the card fits only the correct way in the tray.

3 With the tray aligned as shown, carefully replace the SIM tray containing the SIM card in iPhone.

How to change the simcard of my apple 3g iphone?


The SIM card in the iPhone is removable, but it's hidden. To remove the SIM card, you need a paper clip.

We are checking to see if this voids your iPhone warranty. If you are concerned that it might, please don't perform this task.

The iPhone's SIM card is located behind this door.
1. Locate the SIM Card Slot
The slot is located at the top of the iPhone, between the headphone jack and the power button.
The paper clip is a valuable tech tool.
2. Open the Slot
Take your paper clip and insert it into the little hole. Then firmly push down until the slot pops up.
3. Remove the SIM Card
The SIM card is in a cradle. You can pop the card out of the cradle.

To replace the SIM card, put the card back in the cradle. The cradle and card are notched in a way that forces you to replace the card on the proper side. Then just slide the card back into the iPhone.

Thanks alot,
Sanjeev Kumar
