    Don't use a toothpick. Use a paper clip like posted. Remember you will need to push hard and when the sim tray is lose you'll feel it pop.

    Yea do NOT use a toothpick, it's to weak. Use a paperclip, or a thumbtack

    This sim tray is more difficult to remove than the previous model.

    Use the old tool from the previous one and make sure you are pushing straight in, not at an angle. It takes a little more pressure, but it will come out.

    Thanks guys!!! Finally got it using my sister in laws earring. I couldn't find a small enough paperclip. I guess I wong be using my iPhone 4 for a bit, sticking with 3GS until jailbreak is released. It woulda been nice if I could switched sim cards back and forth, oh well.

    You can!

    or at least i do from time to time when i absolutely NEED mywi


    Just take an exacto knife, cut the microsim shape out of your old simcard, place the microsim in the other sim, and just use a piece of tape to keep it together, its kind of ghetto, and i'm sure there will be an adapter soon, but it works for me!
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!

    micro sim adapter. I got a good one from micro-sim.com.

    The micro sim snaps in. Cheaper models need a piece of tapt to keep them in the adapter.
