Really obvious tip

Reviewing phones, I have to swap a lot of SIM cards around between them and some can be pretty fiddly. Here’s my really obvious tip to make SIM removal less of a pain. Instead of struggling to get a grip or risking damage to the SIM tray, just use a small blob of Blu-tack to get traction on the edge of the SIM. Then it’s easy to slide out. Daft but true.

To do proper diagnostics before considering a repair, it’s important to check out the basics. Customers will get frustrated very quickly if they can’t do something they feel should be easy. This tip may help you to help them. Good for getting fiddly microSD cards out too.
