Question: Sim card removal pin

I just got my first iPhone (6s) and it came with this little paper-clip-looking tool with no explanation. Searching here, I found out what it is. How is a sim card removal pin used and why?

iPhone 6s, iOS 11.3

Answer:
Answer:

Sim cards are designed to be removed. They contain your carriers settings as well as your service plan info and cell number.


If you ever want to change carriers, or the sim card fails, you would need to replace it with a different sim card.


There is no risk in removing it, but without a sim card, your phone would not have cell service.
