    So I was cleaning out my drawer and found my old z10 in it. Got a reminder of how smooth the OS is. Still functions well. I took it to an at&t store to see if I could get a Sim card for it. They told me that there was an issue with the Sim card reader.

    I am not buying their claim. I have never abused that phone. The only thing I had an issue with on that phone is the power button. It acts weird when you press to unlock sometimes. My question is could I use a Sim card adapter to use on the z10? I don't really want to buy another phone as a backup if I already have the z10.

    Probably worth a 5 to 10 dollar investment to find out! Here's an example of one of the many SIM adapter kits found on Amazon....

    I use an adapter from time to time in my Z10 BUT be very careful with it as you can easily damage the pins if the sim is not inserted properly. I guess it's not a huge deal anyway as your Z10 was just sitting in a drawer for ages.

    I can attest to this. I have 2 Z10s that cannot be used because of this. They are now Wi-Fi only devices. The Sim reader in the Z10 seems to be especially fragile.

    It will work without it, but have something for the delicate process of removing it.

    I have used my z10 with sim adapter without any problems. I would suggest being careful to ensure adapter is flush with sim
