replacing a sim card on iPhone 5 or 5s

Other Apple Chat

Hi all,
Is it possible for a completely blind person to swipe out a nanno sim card from the iPhone? I need to do this pretty soon and I'm wondering if it can be done by a blind person. Has anyone had any success with doing this on their own?

To be honest, all you need is the sim tray opener (or other similar opener) and to put the micro sim in. It should be a seasy as that.

I'm legally blind, so I can't say for sure if it's doable for a totally blind person, but I think it would be if you can find the little tiny hole on the side, I think it's the right side as you are holding your I phone right side up and facing you. I used a paper clip, since I didn't get one of those little tools to open the sim tray.
Then, there are some tiny notches to match on the corners of the sim card to the tray. If you can feel those, then it should be ok. I was surprised at how hard I had to push to get that paper clip to open that tray, I almost gave up. The tray didn't just fly out either, it just barely came out, then I had to pull it out the rest of the way.

Good Luck :)

Thank you, I will see what I can do. I've never done this before so I'm a little nervous. I hope it registers all right.

Just try to be patient as it can sometimes take a few tries to really get the nuances of doing it
