None of them do since the 4 I think, or the 4S.

Paper clip?

US iPhone 4's and newer, I think don't come with SIM ejector tools. However, the pin on the end of the tool happens to be the same gauge as the wire of a paperclip, so a paperclip is a suitable stand-in tool.

Pretty sure only the AT&T ones do, Verizon/Sprint don't. Not that it's really that important.

I'm pretty sure the 3GS was the last iPhone that came with an apple "sim eject tool".
I still have mine.
Use a paper clip, and calm down.

Factory unlocked ones come with it also. I keep one on my keychain, helpful when traveling.

Well when I got my iPhone 4, it's didn't come with the sim tool. It really was a wasted tool, since a paper clip works just fine.

Motorola (Droid RAZR M), HTC, and Nokia seems to be providing their own SIM eject tool just fine.

Is this a joke? Are you seriously that senseless that you think you need a tool to eject the sim? How can you even dial a phone number? How could you sign up for a macrumors account and post a comment? I think you must be kidding. Isn't this textbook trolling?

6. Trolling. Do not post in order to anger other members or intentionally cause negative reactions. For a given post, this can be a subjective call, but a pattern of such posting or an especially egregious case will get you banned.

Really? I never knew this. I bought my iPhone 4 from Canada, it comes with a pin. My 4S was bought from apple store USA, unlocked version, also comes with a pin. My second 4S which was bought in Indonesia cuz some ******* stole my iPhone, also comes with a pin.

Why did apple remove the pin? I know a simple paper clip will solve the problem, but they should have included it.

Soo.. only international/unlocked version comes with a pin?

If you give me your address I'll send you one as long as you promise to never post on macrumors again.
