    I'm sure you can purchase a SIM card tray at any phone location. Make sure it's unlocked and put whatever SIM card u need for your carrier. GL

    I'm guessing you put ZERO effort into looking for this part online...considering the results I just got googling for an iPhone 4 SIM tray, lol.

    It's just a matter of becoming tired of seeing the complete lack of effort people put forth before they come asking for help. I mean if you searched and found this community and took the time to present such a question...how on EARTH did searching for a SIM tray elude ones course of thought.

    To the OP, are you saying that the phone doesn't have a place for the SIM Card at all (which would be the case if the phone was a Verizon phone, for example)?

    If that is the case, you will not be able to use it outside the US.

    OP, if you're talking about the SIM slot itself (not just the tray as you implied)...you have a CDMA device which doesn't use a SIM card, and can only be used on CDMA networks (Verizon and Sprint in the US).

    I am sorry but not true with VZW... My 4S and now my 5S has a SIM slot and tray and in fact with the Pin for it. I have never opened the slot but will next time I take off my case just to look but had no reason prior just to see if there is even a card in the tray.

    Of course Yes all true but my 4S and 5S has a SIM slot and tray.

    UPDATE: Just took my case off and not only does it have the tray and slot but a VZW branded SIM in it.

    iPhone 4 did not have the slot...4S was the first to have it with Verizon (and Sprint from what I recall)...for use with international networks.

    But the OP is talking about a iPhone 4 which does not have a SIM Card or a SIM card tray if it is a Verizon (or Sprint) phone.
