Default Remove SIM Card from the Flip

Please Login to Remove!

This could have been raised, but I have not been able to locate the thread. I have need to remove the SIM/Phone card from my flip and found that it is almost impossible to grab and pull it off its slot. Anybody has good tip? Thanks.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry Curve 8900)

It has been some time since I had the flip, but if it is like the Curve 8900 you have to kind of lift it up vertically first, then pull it out.

Thanks. Just want to make sure that I do not destroy the SIM.

Did you get it out? I haven't had to remove mine yet and was wondering how it went.

yeah, got it out and replaced with another. i found it more effective by using a pair of tweezers. It would be very tricky to use fingers/nails to grab the very small opening between the sim and the phone base.

I remove it with my fingers with no problems. its stuck in there but definitely doable without any tools.

I had this problem once. I tried pulling it out with my fingers but to no avail. Good thing I found some tweezers and that made the trick.

i just usually press down with my thumb and then twist it outwards, that seems to work great, but you should not have to worry about the sim cards they are very durable, I'm not sure many know this but really 90% of the card is just plastic and the only part that has ANY info on it is really what you see, nothing else is hidden in the plastic so you can even cut the card up where the contacts arnt and it will work fine, I know this from expierence.

When I had to pull my SIM out, I used a rubber eraser. Just erase a spot on the table first for max traction. Then press on the card and push out. My meat hooks can't grab it, so this is the method I use.
