Blackberry - How to remove your SIM card - Step-by-Step

Removing the SIM card, or Subscriber Identity Module from your Blackberry 8700 cellular phone is a pretty easy and straight forward process. There are several reason why you want to remove or replace your SIM card. This include upgrading your SIM card support additional bands, changing phones, or even some service providers.

Here is the step-by-step.

1. Place your phone face down to expose the back.

2. Place your finger on the button at the botton and slide the back down. As it slides down it should disconnect and you should be able to set it to the side.

3. Remove the battery. Lift up on the battery from the top and rotate out until it disconnects. The is a spot on the upper left where your finger will fit. Once the batter is removed, the SIM card is exposed.

4. Just below the SIM card is a black tab that will release the SIM card from the Blackberry unit. Push the black plastic tab down and with your index finger, slide the SIM card down. As it slides down, it will release from the holder.

5. Congratulations, your SIM card has been removed. To replace, simply slide back in with the notched corner positioned on the bottom right.

Thanks so much really needed to see the inside of the Blackberry 8700c to see if my sim card from my other phone was compatible with the 8700c. Thanks again

i have a verizon 8703e as well, and i think it is without a SIM card. like the comment a couple above mine, it's just a solid plastic piece below the battery. i pried it off and found no SIM card.
