push out the right sim

 I've received my new sim today. I have an Iphone and need a micro sim. The packaging says "push out the right sim". 

My question (and possibly a silly one) is do I try to push part of the sim out or does it need to be cut? It's small and looks fragile and I'm worried I might break it.

Re: push out the right sim

Hi Braincapers

Don't worry about pushing it out too far.

the sim as it comes is a standard - then to mico - then to nano

if u push it out too far then the piece of plastic around it will fit back around it Smiley Happy . like an adapter Smiley Happy

Re: push out the right sim

Hi, I have an android phone but believe that only the iPhone 4 uses a micro SIM so this must be what you have? (the "middle" size SIM card)

If you have an iPhone 5 or 6 it will use the nano SIM (the smallest).

Just carefully push it out no need to cut anything. It'll break free OK then you'll be able to insert it into your phone.
