At the top of the phone, you should see a little black hole. If you poke it with something like a paper clip or the tool that came with the phone, a tray will come out. You put the SIM in the tray, the cutoff corner should be on the top left if the screen of the phone is facing you.

I have not heard anything about before or after charging mattering. As long as the phone is not powered on.

Not getting battery packup after inserting simcard iphone 3G

If it works when the SIM is out and not when the SIM is in, I'd suggest trying the SIM in another telephone, as the card itself might be faulty.

How to insert second simcard on iphone 3g

You'll need to buy and insert an adapter such as this one. (13th item down the page).

No soldering or cutting needed as it simply repaces your current SIM card, but note that like ALL current twin SIM adapters it might not work fully if you own a UK or European version of the iPhone 3G.

Hope this helps, if so please return the favour and take a moment to rate my answer.

IPHONE 3G 16GB shows lock symbol and itunes usb connected(locked)

Unforunatly when you hook the phone up to Itunes it updates and relocks itself. This is Apple and At&t's way of keeping it locked. You are going to have to get the phone unlocked again.

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
