1 Insert the ejection pin into the hole on the tray to loosen the tray. Ensure that the ejection pin is perpendicular to the hole. Otherwise, the device may be damaged.
2 Pull out the tray gently from the tray slot.
3 Place the Nano SIM card on the tray with the gold-coloured contacts facing downwards.
4 Gently press the SIM or USIM card into the tray to secure it. If the card is not fixed firmly into the tray, the SIM card may leave or fall out of the tray.
5 Insert the tray back into the tray slot. Make sure you fully insert the tray into the tray slot to prevent liquid from entering your device.

Note: If you insert the tray into your device while the tray is wet, your device may be damaged. Always make sure the tray is dry.

If you lost the ejector tool, don’t panic! It is easy to replace it with a very common object: a paper clip. Unfold one of the end of the paperclip (as shown above) and use it as an ejector tool. As you can see, it is a very simple DIY!
