I've selected the photos I want to delete but, the delete button isn't turning blue. They were all taken on the iPhone but, the sim card has been removed. Do I need the sim card or not to delete the images?

  • Welcome to Ask Different. Are these photos that were taken on this iPhone or were synced from your computer? – fsb Jun 18 '19 at 18:25
  • If you sync-ed the pictures via your Mac/PC you can only delete them by deleting them on your computer not on the phone. Then when you sync the photos will then be deleted. – Steve Chambers Jun 18 '19 at 19:20
  • Do use iCloud Photos? – howdytom Jun 18 '19 at 20:41

SIM presence changes nothing. Even if you have iCloud photos you can delete photos without service or network and then those changes will only sync up once you connect.

Something else is amiss. Do you have a backup of the device and opportunity to test a restart / reset / restore?
