    I get upset every time I read a post on these forums stating that sim ejector tools are shipped with unlocked iPhones. I purchased a 32gb white iPhone 4S at the apple store and no sim tool was inside. There will be people tempted to post, is it unlocked?, it is.

    Use a paper clip? The sim ejector is a glorified paper clip.

    Sometimes a paper clip isn't thin enough to fit in there. You have to have the really tiny ones. If you have a button or a pin, that should work.

    Haha .. yeah OP's post seems a bit ridiculous, getting angry for not having the sophisticated SIM ejector tool on brand new iPhone 4S box :D

    But yeah, I understand the confusion, it maybe noticeable change since iPhone 4 package still include it.

    I got my unlocked 4S from eBay, and yes it was wrapped and brand new, but the seller gave me a paperclip along with the package. Was I confused, SIM ejector wasn't there, apparently it's not given anymore, I thought the box was prayed open or something despite being brand new. Fortunately I was wrong, no iPaperclip included by default, so ... no problem.

    Well yeah .. albeit small and nothing too important, but sim ejector tool is not included on iPhone 4S package. So live with it, or buy one if you so inclined about it, super expensive for what it is from Apple :D .. so yes I can live without it as long paperclip still being made LOL .. and yeah I wasn't angry about it.

    I would personally find that annoying. I mean the SIM slot is meant to be accessed and I personally don't have any paper clips in my apartment. I have a CDMA 4S and even then I wish it came with one since the SIM slot is unlocked and I swap out quite frequently.

    I heard Apple stopped including them after 3GS.

    I think you're right. I don't recall one in my iPhone 4 box, and most definitely not in the 4S. Its not a big deal though... paper clip, push pin, all kinds of things will pop the hole.

    I got one with my brand new unlocked black 4S 32GB.. Though i wouldn't get mad if there wasn't any as i usually use something else because i usually drop the one included anyways..

    True story: I found a Sim Ejector tool in the Forbidden City in Beijing in March this year. I'm not saying it's the one that's missing in your box but maybe it is?:D

    I don't even own paper clips. I would have to search all through to the house, and maybe, just maybe, I would fine one paperclip after hours of searching.

    I have a brand new iPhone 4S here in Australia. I've gotten one with my 3G as well as my new 4S. Looking at YouTube unboxings of the 4S, it seems as though the ones sold in the US don't include the SIM ejector tool.

    It's only the US models that don't get the ejector tool. Mainly because they are usually locked to a carrier. A paper clip solves that problem. :)

    An officially unlocked iPhone comes with a SIM ejector tool.
    The one that does not have must be AT&T version purchased with full price/device only.

    AT&T unlocked doesn't include tool. Even if purchased at apple store. only the official apple factory unlocked one does. My 16gb white 4s included the tool, neatly attached to the paper wrap around the manual/guides. Purchased in US Apple Store, walked in with cash on the 9th.

    The original iPhone did not include one either.
