    did anyone else not get a sim removal tool with their iPhone? I needed to take my sim out and had to go find something else to open it with. Usually they are included with iPhones right?

    Only included with unlocked phones.

    I recommend a 1mm screwdriver instead.

    No SIM eject tool in iphone 6

    I have seen an unboxing video and the SIM eject tool is included in that video but in my box there is no SIM eject tool.

    The SIM eject tool is included in your box?

    The first iphone included a the charger of the ipad, then they replaced for a less powerful charger, I have read that if you charge your iphone with the ipad charger it will charge a lot faster.

    Also the first iphone has a cloth to clean the screen, and all the iphones include the SIM eject tool.

    Why Apple every time offer you less for the same money.

    For a company that has more than 100 billion in cash, is it fair to save money on this items? Does it really matters for them not to include this items that cost almost nothing?

    I love my iphone 6, but I think that it is bad that they keep you offering less for the same money.

    My box don't include the sim tool. I make a thread about the same issue.

    It is unfair that Apple don't include the SIM eject tool with the iphone 6.

    I have seen an unboxing video and it includes the SIM eject tool.

    I'm sorry to be rude about this, but "unfair" is a bit of a stretch. Do they not have paperclips where you're from?

    Still here in Canada, too. And it seems like they may have changed the plastic strips for some people? Mine came with plastic that wrapped around it at the top, but I've seen other people say that theirs came with two separate pieces.

    Have the iPhones in the USA ever come with SIM tools?

    The unlocked 5S came with a SIM tool but the others did not.

    Phones sold outside the US and unlocked phones in the US are sold with the tool. In the US with a locked phone you are presumed to not have to change SIMs and thus are not given the tool so you can't screw with the SIM all too easily.

    I think maybe the first two models? I think that was about it, though. It's been awhile.

    I didn't get one either, but a pin with the bead on top from my mom's sewing box fit perfectly in my iPhone 5 and 6+

    The issue is not how to find one paperclip, I have 5 SIM eject tools, the issue is that Apple every time offer you less for the same money.

    How much can cost the sim tool if you buy millions, I am sure that for Apple is less than 20 cents for every tool or maybe less and they decided that they will save that money, does it changes their finances doing this?

    Reading the posts here it looks like for some countries Apple decides to include them or not. Why not include them for everyone. I would like more to have that SIM tool than the Apple logo stickers.
