    SIM card removal/Screen click fix for 95xx

    If you're like me, then you have no need for a SIM card. My screen also wasn't clicking good in the corners
    so I have always used the mods to fix it, ie the business card fix. So let's solve both of these problems all at once.

    SIM CARD REMOVAL
    The SIM card is really easy to remove from your Storm. The easiest way I have found is to use a pencil eraser.
    Simply remove the battery cover and battery. Now take the eraser and push the SIM card toward the battery compartment.
    You can use the eraser on the 3 exposed areas off the card to "wiggle" it out.



    SCREEN CLICK FIX
    This kills two birds with one stone. It fixes the screen click problem while storing your SIM card in a safe place.
    Take the SIM card and place it on top of the battery like below. Then tape it to the battery. I used scotch tape for mine.
    Probably not the best solution but the card seems pretty durable and it won't rip of the decal on the card.
    I had my taped in there for several weeks before removing it for this guide. It came off with no problem.




    Now put your battery back in and replace the battery door . Check and see if your screen clicks correctly.
    That's it! Simple screen click fix and SIM card storage solution.

    :bigok:




    Droooooiiiiiid!

    Just gave this a shot and found the torx screw or biz card gives me a better click. But you know how these phones are, no two are alike.

    It's for traveling overseas. It allows you to connect to GSM networks in other countries.
