This is a series of blog posts documenting my switch from iPhone to Android. To read the whole exciting saga, click here.
One nice thing about the iPhone is the SIM carrier — it’s a metal frame that holds up well under repeated SIM changes. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a thin metal carrier that uses friction to press the contacts against the card. Between my card wearing out and using a SIM carrier adapter, my phone has lost connection with the SIM card.
On an iPhone? I’d probably need to replace the phone. With a Samsung? I bought a replacement SIM carrier online – $1.88, with free shipping.Â bought another battery with a wall charger, so I can swap batteries and not worry about charging on the road.
