Last month I got back from my 2 week trip to Israel where I used my iPhone 5 as my main phone and Internet device (I also had a laptop and iPad wifi only).
For anyone who has removed SIMs from an iPhone before knows, you need a tiny utensil, or paper clip to get the job done. Additionally, I ran into the issue of protecting and keeping my tiny AT&T SIM card during my travels.
There is no good solution for international travelers, until now.
There’s a new project on Kickstarter called SIMPLcase
, and it tackles the exact issues I faced as an international traveler. (Full Disclosure: I just became a funder of this project for $12, and will receive a case assuming the project is completed and produced. This is the first Kickstarter project I’ve ever funded).
The case, currently just for the iPhone 5, and eventually older models, contains a slot for both the iPhone’s SIM tray eject tool (provided) and spare SIM cards so they’re safe. Additionally, it uses any standard credit card as a stand for using your iPhone hands-free in either horizontal or vertical orientation.
