The SIM card tray (long oval shape cover) is located next to the headphone port. Right next to it is a tiny hole. Straighten out a paper clip (paper clip seems to do the job quite well, however any thin rigid "tool" will do); insert the paper clip into the hole and pop open the SIM card tray. As long as you don't use excess force to pop open the tray, you will not damage your phone.

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 do I insert my simcard to iphone 3G? Do I do this before or after charging the iphone?

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.

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
