    Removing the SIM card...Please Help

    OK I'm not quite understanding how the SIM card is removed on my iPhone 5. I don't want to damage the phone again. I can go to Verizon and have them do it for me but I would prefer to do it myself.

    I only have the small paper clips.

    Do you push on the hole and does the card tray come out? That's what it looks like in the firs directions but the second time it says use paper clip and pull.

    I know it can't be that hard but I don't want to damage my new phone.

    Thanks in advance and if you give me a good detailed answer you get a like.

    You do just push firmly into the hole,dont worry about how hard you push,i find if you angle it down ever so slightly it just pops open.

    Yup its probably a bit firmer push than you are giving after the last debarcle you had
    And +1 to johnwolves post
    Check the packaging again for the sim removal tool (it does slightly resemble a paper clip)

    it seems some people don't get a sim removal tool in which case a paper clip does the job just fine.

    No need to w/ my iP5... AT&T set it up w/ the Nano SIM when I purchased it on release morning. There's no need for me to take my SIM out. Had my iP4 for almost 2 years and never had the SIM out... other than when I replaced the screen.

    Then your phone set should have been a $100 cheaper!
