Tutorial here, with some animation:

Take a look at the simulator tutorial KentE posted for a better idea of how to do it, particularly the part about pushing the gray stopper.
redrotors wrote: I think you are right KentE, nice find. From that tutorial seems this may be key "while pushing down the gray stopper". Don't know if that is causing difficulties, if so a toothpick or bread bag tie (the split plastic, not wire type) may help.
Maybe just need to recruit a 12 year old

KentE wrote: I'm not much good with color, but....I think the grey stopper may be just behind the SIM in the picture (below and to the right of the SIM), the small tab in the recess in the pan. It's to stop the SIM from sliding out of the holder. When installing the SIM, you might need to apply slight downward pressure on the top of the SIM as it passes over that bar to keep it depressed, as it would tend to raise the SIM above the metal SIM guard/holder. (Not the best design, since the metallic traces would be scraping over that bar.
