You will need a sim card removal tool which usually comes in the box with your iPhone and is inside the manual section; or you can use a paper clip, don’t use anything sharp as it can damage the interior of your phone.  These days, nano sim is included in the same card as standard and micro sim, I got mine from Utility Warehouse.  Punch out the smallest which is the nano sim.

Instruction:

1.  Turn off your iPhone.  You can leave it on if you wish, but I would recommend turning it off before you remove the old sim or insert a new sim card.

2.  Locate the sim card tray on the right hand side of your iPhone, just under the power button.

3.  Insert the sim card removal tool or paper clip into the sim slot hole, then press firmly until the sim tray slides out.

4.  Take out the tray, remove your old sim (if there is one there).

5.  Carefully align your new nano sim card, the metal circuit board side down, making sure the slanting edge aligns in the sim tray.

6.  Re-insert and push the sim tray with your new sim card into the iPhone.

7.  Turn on your iPhone which will detect your sim and phone signal.

The Amazon Locker at Morden Library is located on the ground floor; as you go inside, you can’t miss it – it’s the big yellow box just by the lifts.    You will need to enter your unique pickup code on the locker screen or, if you have a barcode, scan it using the scanner located just below the screen, then follow the on-screen instructions.   The Locker has compartment sizes that can fit most packages, so once the code is correctly entered, one of the compartment doors will open and you can then collect your parcel.

All parcels delivered to Amazon Locker locations must be picked up within 3 working days.  If you are not able to collect your parcel within this timeframe, it will be returned to Amazon and you will receive a refund.

Whist you are in the library, you may want to borrow some books, CDs or DVDs; use the library computers; check out the notice board for local news and events, and even have a cuppa in the café located on the first floor.

Have you ever noticed on your iPhone that when you send messages, some are in green and some in blue? Some of you may already know this but for those who are curious, here is why:-

iphone_greenGreen is for SMS (short messaging service) text Message.
This is the ‘traditional’ text message that is automatically used when sending a text to someone without an Apple device, for example if you are sending message to any smartphone other than iPhone (such as Windows, Android, Blackberry). Regular texting rates apply depending on your phone provider’s texting plan.

iphone_blueBlue is for iMessage.
This works only on iDevices. The iMessage is sent over an internet connection. There are no text charges by your phone provider but a small amount of data is used when your iPhone is not connected to a WiFi network.

This is all done automatically if an iMessage is activated in your iPhone as well the recipient’s iPhone (Tap Settings, Messages, then check to see if the feature is switched on.  If it is, you should also activate “Send as SMS”)
