    3gs Was the last to ship with a SIM tool.
    That's not true at all. My iPhone 5 came with a sim tool attached to the paperwork folder inside the box

    Odd. My 4s, my 5 and now my 5s all came with a sim tray removal tool in the box. It's attached to the flap on the cover that the paperwork is in. They were all unlocked Canadian models if that makes a difference.

    Ya, that confused me as well. iPhone 4, 4S and 5 all came with one from Rogers.

    I was talking with a rep at the Apple store Genius Bar yesterday about a different matter, but I asked about the SIM tool. His response was that they should be included with all unlocked phones, but not with the carrier-specific phones. The logic is that with an AT&T iPhone, for example, it comes with a SIM, and there should really be no need to open the SIM tray, whereas with an unlocked iPhone, it comes with no SIM, so the end user would have a need to be able to open the SIM tray.

    Seems totally plausible to me.

    None of the 5s's came with a sim tool? Hm. Well the 5c's do. The unlocked ones anyway. I bet if they had unlocked 5s's they would also come with a sim tool.

    If none of the carrier models came with the sim tool, and the t-mobile model didn't come with the sim tool, then no iPhones purchased in the U.S. came with a SIM tool. The Canadian version, which I talked about earlier are being sold as unlocked thus come with sim tool.

    When I gave my Droid DNA to my boyfriend upon getting my 5S, I decided to keep the little tool just in case! He can use it should he ever need to, but I prefer the styling of the HTC version so I just wanted it.

    USA iPhones never have them.

    Use an earring, buy one, use another sim tool or a paper clip.

    I actually think that the SIM tool is necessary regardless if you have an unlocked or carrier iPhone. Example, I'm with Verizon. Was using a BlackBerry Z10 when I decided to get the 5s. After a few days I wasn't really liking the iPhone. Using Verizon's website, I switched devices which requires you to enter the SIM # to activate the phone. Well, a few days later decided to give the iPhone another chance (so happy I did, now that I'm use to the 5s it's amazing). When I went to switch on the website I needed the SIM # from the iPhone, but the phone needs to turned off to switch. So you need to open the drawer to get to the SIM. I just used a paper clip. You can call me Bond, James Bond

    I don’t disagree with anything you said... but what I reported was what the guy at the Genius Bar told me. Take it for what it’s worth.

    I bought my phone from carrier and my 5S came with sim-tool. Then again that was not in US, so it might be different there.

    No worries, it makes sense from Apple's point of view and even the carrier's point of view. But as a consumer, it's simple we should get the tool. My comment wasn't directed at you, sorry if you took it that way

    I didn't. Just clarifying.

    I can’t imagine that those tools cost more than a fraction of a penny to product... would be a nice gesture on Apple's part to include one... especially since the original iPhone had them all the way up to at least the 3GS. But it’s a nit. It’s not like anyone is majorly inconvenienced because they don’t give you one...

    We just received my wife's unlocked 5s. I was expecting to see a sim removal tool, but there wasn't one. Is this normal for the TMO unlocked phones?
    Apple told me that they stopped including the SIM eject tool after the 4S.

    On launch day at the Verizon store (iphone 5s 64g) the included SIM card would not activate, they had to try 3 SIM cards before it would work, an included tool would have come in handy that day.

    Paper clips works but make sure they are small enough. My coworker scratched up the hole on his iPhone using a paperclip that was too big. The ear ring trick works great. I have collected about 10 SIM eject tools over the years. Always have one handy.
