Thanks for the instructions on removing the SIM card. I needed this info to put it in a phone I am renting for use in Japan.

Your instructions didn't tell me anything I couldn't already see:

1. Slide the SIM card out of the phone as shown.

I thought there was a special trick to unlatch it, since the old card wouldn't come out with gentle persuasion. But you gave me the confidence to grab a pair of tweezers and yank on it until it popped out.

Now I can insert the new SIM card... Thanks!

Instead of using tweezers to remove the SIM card, you can use a piece of adhesive tape (such as electrical tape) to grab it and start to slide it out.

I certainly am reluctant to take tweezers and give it a yank to force it, but I need for it to come out. I imagine the silver bracket stays in. What's the worst that can happen?

The worst that could happen is that you might damage the SIM card, although that is probably unlikely as long as you pull straight out (not at an angle) and with consistent force.

Good luck!

I used a pencil eraser and the SIM card slid off easily.

You could also use a pencil eraser to "push" out the card.

I've been struggling with removing the blasted SIM card since I've had this phone. The clip makes it appear MUCH harder than it really is. The best solution? Using the pencil eraser works brilliantly!

Thanks to Shuey for the tip!!!

the pencil eraser worked as well for me as a factory tool.

The eraser trick worked GREAT for me -- thanks to everyone.
I also cleaned off the tiny bits of dead skin that had scraped off my finger on to the SIM - visible only under extreme magnification, but able to botch gold contacts any day.

Like the guy says, the clip makes the task look hard. And like the others say, an eraser does the job, so thanx guys!

I was able to change the SIM card but only 5 of 200 contacts were downloaded. It appeared to be the ones most recently updated. Any suggestions on how to get the other 190+.

thanks..

Tried all of the above. Can't get any of the suggestions to work. How do you get a pair of tweezers underneath the thing to grab hold?

The pencil eraser trick certainly worked for me - thank you.
