    I had one with my UK purchase.

    Seems like an odd thing to leave out??

    They don't need one. Only one of their national networks is compatible. Sucks to be them.

    Also it might give people the idea to swap their iPhone SIM w/ unlimited data into their iPad 3G on occasion, as needed, rather than spending another $15-25.:D

    They probably figure everyone has a paper clip so why do they need to include it.

    i would guess it is an AT&T call, trying to stop people from buying them off Ebay & CL and swapping sims :confused:

    Considering the directions in the box show how to remove the SIM with a paper clip, I doubt the conspiracy theories have any weight.

    Apple probably wised up and realized how much it costs to stamp out millions of these metal pieces that only have a single use, when in fact most anyone who has access to an iPhone likely also has access to a paper clip.

    Again, why only in the US?

    The cost is not going to change between countries.

    On a product like the iPhone, I can't imagine that the ASTRONOMICAL cost of paperclips was a factor.
