Should I remove the sims card? What do I need it for

That is how it connects to a cell provider. If you are using your iPhone just as an iPod you will need the nanoSIM if you ever update or have to restore that phone.

    Apparently, no one pays it... That's why they shut off your service.

    If you are shipping back I assume you called Apple and they are sending you a box (as that is what they do). When you get it you will find:
    1) Details short instructions of what to do.
    2) Paper Clip
    3) Foam packaging
    4) Box (with foam in it too)
    5) Sleeve in Box inside
    6) Tape
    Instructions will say to
    1) back up phone (if you can via iTunes)
    2) Use paperclip to eject and keep SIM (put in spare phone if you have it)
    3) Put phone in sleeve.
    4) Put sleeve in padded box.
    5) Put box in padded shipping box.
    6) Use tape provided to tape shut.
    7) Remove outer shipping slip to reveal return slip (you don't have to pay for anything)
    8) Go drop off for shipping or call FedEx for pickup.

    When sending in the phone for service you want to remove the SIM Card and do not put any accessories in with the box that came with your iPhone.

  • If I'm selling an iPhone 3G, do I need to remove the SIM card?

    I'm putting my old iPhone 3G on ebay.  Other than resetting and wiping it clean, do I need to remove the SIM card as well?  I haven't used that phone in years and there is nothing on there I need.  I'm just concerned that the new owner would get my personal information.
    Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

    Must people would sell a phone without a simcard

  • HT2309 Do I need to power off the iphone 4s  before remove the sim card?

    Thanks, I think so, too.
    But  Apple says  "When changing the SIM card, power off the device prior to opening the SIM tray" in http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2309.

  • My Jetpack 5510L says that its connected to 4G but its performing very slow, I removed the sim card and did a reset of the device. Any other suggestions?

    I don't know who you would contact at Verizon to verify this, but I suspect you are in the same situation as me.  My unlimited Jetpack is now being throttled to a basically useless speed of .10Mbps.  Sometimes as low as .04Mbps.  Turns out this is done purposely as they are evidently eliminating unlimited.  They're doing this now even though accounts still display on the my device page as unlimited.  They have given no warning, no explanation and started it in the middle of a billing cycle.  At least for me.  Be prepared to pay about double for 20GB with I think and $8 per gig overage cost.  With the 5GB plan it appears they just throttle down to an unusable speed.  Currently considering saying goodbye to Verizon myself.  Even with some need to change plans and eliminate unlimited this isn't the way to treat customers during the change.

    Was your iPhone hacked/jailbroken to be unlocked?
    If so, installing an iOS update on an iPhone that was hacked to be unlocked or restoring such an iPhone with iTunes re-locks the iPhone to the carrier the iPhone was sold as carrier locked with.
    What is the exact error message - the SIM card is not supported?

    There is a slot/tray on the right side of the iPhone. You can open it with a special tool that comes with some iPhones, or you can use a paper clip to push the release in the hole on the tray. Push GENTLY.
