    You don't, it's just included in case you ever need it.

    When you sell you 3G S you need to eject the sim card and keep it as it contains your subscriber info - it is YOUR card.

    The SIM card ejection tool is otherwise known as a paperclip. The 3G came with a "SIM card ejection tool" as well.

    I remember paper clips going for $10.00 as sim card ejection tools on ebay.

    What a deal.

    Yeah you'll find a lot of that here. People forget that not everyone lives, eats, breathes and deuces Apple. Just ignore the rude, sarcastic characters. They're not worth responding to.

    I'm sorry. I didn't mean to be rude, but I guess I was fed up with all these weird questions. :)

    Since you will, someday, need to remove/exchange/switch/get a new sim, you're gonna need to be able to eject the existing sim card. So, that's why it's there :)

    Now I'm confused too. Don't we need to move our 3G SIMs into our 3G S's?

    No. The 3GS should come with one in it already. The one you have from your 3G is worthless basically.

    Talk about ingenuity! I'm sure some people bought them just like the idiot who bought one of the original iPhone bags from me for like $15. :D

    I know, right? It's like they need to include 'Common Sense' as part of every school curriculum.

    Exactly, I had a friend who worked at an Apple Store and got me a few extra because they were selling on eBay after the launch for between $15-$20 a bag. I'm also talking about the original iPhone bag, the nice one that was black (or white I think). There's always a sucker right? ;)

    Unfortunately, you'll run into a lot of snobby nerds in a tech forum. Kinda goes with the territory I suppose.

    Just ignore the jerks, there will usually be plenty of very helpful folks as well.
    We're not all bad!!
