    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?

    Not sure about the TMo 5S... but my AT&T 5S also did not come with a SIM tool. Luckily, I kept the SIM tool from my iPhone 4. It's actually on my key chain.

    Looking at Amazon, would a simple paper clip work? Or is it shaped?

    A paper would work, just bend it.

    My T-Mobile 5s also didn't come with a SIM eject tool. However I took it to the AT&T store as that's the carrier I'm with, and the rep had an eject tool to use. As others have sad though, a paper clip should work. I've also read that a thumb tack should work too.

    Haven't seen an eject tool in the box since the 4S. The 5 didn't come with one either.

    This. There are quite a few things around the house, though, that function just the same as that little tool.

    I can confirrm that my Verizon iPhone 5s did not come with a SIM tool. I will look to see if I can find the box for my 4s and see if it is there. I will update if and when I find the box. And I salute you and every other member of our Armed Forces.

    I just figured that was something that came with the territory of purchasing an international phone. Not a big deal though.

    When I kept it on my key chain I would constantly get mini stabbed by it.

    An earring or a paper clip would work just fine. Just make sure your aim is good and you don't scratch the phone!

    I vaguely remember the 3G/3GS having one but not 100% sure. Did the OG iphone come with one?

    All my iPhones have come with one however, it's no big deal. A bent paperclip works just as good.

    My AT&T iPhone 4 didn't have the SIM eject tool in the box, either. I ordered one from Amazon. All of the paper clips that I had were the large ones and they didn't fit into the hole. I also thought that using a paper clip was a bad work-around for a $750 phone.

    Why such a big deal about having no sim tool? Used a dang paper clip and save your money. 😁😁😳

    The reason I asked is because I was under the impression that it came with the unlocked phones. It's not a big deal, just always had a carrier iphone. But I am getting ready to live in the UK for the next 4 yrs and would be swapping SIM cards a few times in the next couple months.
