Default Changing the sim card

So I have taken the battery off of my motorola droid, but now I can't figure out how to take the sim card out. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

The telco's SIM card (e.g. T-Mobile and At&t), or the data storage "MicroSD" card (e.g. SanDisk and Transcend)?

If you're talking SIM, there isn't one.

If you're talking MicroSD, just pull it out.

use your finger/thumbnail to dislodge it and then grab it when the edge is out in the battery area.

Well I got it out, guess I just thought it was more fragile than I figured. So now I have my old phones card in there, but for some reason its not recognizing it? I go to the gallery and it wont show me the pics on my old phones card, and they were saved to the card, not my old phone.

haha no im taking my old card from old phone, and trying to put my music and photos onto my droid and then use my new one that came with the droid. However, I put the old card in the slot and it appears that the droid isn't reading it or accessing it or something. I find no pictures on my phone, or music. And all the options under settings and sd cards are greyed out.

You did put it in the right direction didn't you? Just tried it with the card out of my Att Tilt, works like it should. What was your old phone? Maybe it formats the card to something other than fat?

You may have to "mount" the new card, via the Droid's menu. Also, try installing a file explorer program to navigate your card.

You won't be able to transfer very much besides pics because the DROID can only hold 256MB without a card. What you need to do is use a SD card reader OR your old phone and plug it into your computer then transfer it, then plug your DROID in and transfer it from the computer to there.
