How to insert SIM card

  • Find your SIM pin in the box, usually found within the booklet/box of papers.
  • Insert the pin into the SIM card ejector hole as far as it will go. The SIM card tray will pop out.
  • Insert Nano SIM Card (Smallest cut out of SIM Card) into the tray. Insert the tray back into the device. *The SIM only fits into the tray one way – if you must force it, it’s incorrect and could cause damage.
