How do I insert the SIM Card into my Samsung Galaxy Stellar™?

Your mobile device uses a SIM card to provide you with access to your carrier’s 4G LTE cellular network.

Insert a SIM Card

• The SIM card information and its contacts can be easily damaged by scratching or bending, so be careful when handling, inserting, or removing the card.
• Keep all SIM cards out of reach of small children.

  1. Remove the back cover by inserting a fingernail or pointed object into the slot on the top of your device. Lift the cover up and away from the device.

    • Make sure the card’s gold contacts face the device and the angled corner of the card is positioned correctly.
    • If the SIM card is not inserted correctly, the device will not detect it.
