You’re visiting us today, because you’ve gotten a new SIM card for your phone and you’re not quite sure how to properly insert it, this article will provide easy-to-follow and step-by-step instructions to get your new SIM card inserted correctly, let’s begin.
First you’ll want to check your phone to make sure that it’s powered off before we start the insertion process, once that’s done, let’s find the SIM card slot in your phone, it will be inserted into a sim tray on the top or side of the phone, the SIM slot will be located underneath the battery cover.
If your phone has a tray slot on the top or side, you’ll need to first eject the sim tray to open your phone SIM tray, insert a paper clip or the sim eject tool into the hole beside the SIM tray, some phones have a micro SD tray which is similar to the SIM tray, when eject the tray, make sure that it’s the sim tray and not the microSD tray.
Once the sim tray ejects, you can pull it straight out of the phone, now if the sim slot is located beneath the battery cover, you’ll need to remove the battery in order to access this slot and the SIM card inside.
Next we’ll need to determine which size SIM card is compatible with your phone, there are three sizes, the nano SIM which is about the size of a head of a thumbtack or your pinkie, now a micro SIM is about the size of a dime, and the standard size SIM card is about the size of a quarter, most phones use a nano or Micro SIM, you can compare the size of your sim tray to the size of the SIM card to determine which one fits your phone.
Your package may come with one of two styles of SIM card, the sim trio card or the nano SIM, and the sim trio card will work with phones that use any of these types, thanks to its three pre-cut shapes for phones that use the standard sim, simply pop it out of the card, the micro sim is inside of the standard sim, it can be removed by pushing on the top right corner here, and the nano SIM is inside of the Micro SIM, it is detached by pushing the back of the card towards you.
If your package includes the nano-sim and adapters, punch out the nano-sim from the sim holder, if you determine your phone uses a nano sim, then you’re ready to insert your sim into your phone, if your phone requires one of the SIM cards larger than a nano, you’ll need to use one of the adapters included in the sim kit, using the notch in the corner as a guide.
Align the notch on the sim to match the notch on the sim adapter, push the SIM card and snap it securely in place, next you’ll need to put the SIM card into your phone, if it has a sim tray, line up the notch on the corner of the card with the notch on the corner of the tray, push it in place.
Then insert the tray back into the phone in the same way that it comes out, it will only fit in one way, if your SIM card port is under the back cover of your phone, then slide the card directly into the slot, there will be a notch in the corner of the slot to help you align it, or a small diagram to guide you which direction the SIM card should be inserted, put the battery back in place and replace the back cover, power on your phone, and your new SIM card is now inserted, enjoy your phone.
