    Help with a mobile phone ID

    Need model # or how to remove the SIM card for this phone. My sister sent it to me so I can have a Vodafone pre paid chip in it and ring her for nothing as she has a Vodafone too. But I cannot work out how to get the darned SIM that is in there out (it fails registration, the phone says).

    Any help gratefully received.

    Take the battery out. Get your fingernail (or something thin) behind the bottom edge of the SIM card (where the little recess bit in the phone body is) and slide the SIM under the metallic bit back towards the battery compartment. (That's how I do it for mine anyway, although mine is different model).


    Cheers.

    Yep, what Fillum said. Instead of getting your fingernail or something thin, you should just be able to shove it with your finger and it should just slide out. If it's a dud SIM then it won't matter if you do that.

    It's a Nokia 8250. With the funky bluescreen and additional covers that use groovy pearl paint!

    Yep, that's exactly it.

    1. Take out the battery first, by using your finger at the cut away indicated. Just lift the battery up with your finger tip.
    2. Use your fingertip again to slide the sim out, there's another little cutaway marked 2. push the sim backwards in the direction of 3.

    I wouldn't feel bad about that one if I were you because if it were me I would still be trying to get the back cover of the thing.
