    I think deep in your heart you know the answer. Better safe than sorry, power down. :D

    It is safe to leave the phone on when removing or inserting a SIM card.

    100% safe. I've been doing this since the very first iPhone.

    I do it all the time when testing various apps between phones.
    Not a big deal.
