Install an ad blocker

First, choose the ad blocker you'd like to install. There are a few available as of the time of writing this guide.

1Blocker Adamant Blockr Crystal Freedom Purify Silentium

For this guide, I'm going to use Crystal because it's free. Open the app store, and search for Crystal. Then click to install.

Open the Crystal app

If you open the Crystal app, it will provide you with a few instructions. I will also cover them in this guide as they are the same for each content blocker.

Now enable Crystal

Enable Crystal or whichever content blocker you've downloaded. You can enable or disable each content blocker a simple toggle. After enabling it, you should immediately see it take effect.

Disable or allow the pop-up blocker in Chrome

Now that you've got the ad blocker going, why not make sure your pop-up blocker is set up the way you want. Check out our guide on disabling or enabling the pop-blocker in Chrome. This guide should work for iOS users, as well.

Unfortunately, removing a SIM can be tricky at times, especially if you have never removed your SIM card or don't consider yourself very tech-savvy. Don't be intimidated by the SIM removal process, I promise it is easier than it looks. All you need to properly remove your SIM card is your iPhone and a SIM removal tool. Every time you buy an iPhone it comes with a SIM removal tool, which looks a lot like a paperclip. A lot of iPhone users accidentally throw out this handy tool. If you no longer have a SIM removal tool, use a paperclip or the back of an earring. Do not try using anything sharp or easily breakable. Now that you have everything you need to remove your SIM card, let's get started!
