Install SIM card
1 Insert the ejection pin into the hole 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 For Single SIM models, place the SIM or USIM card on tray 1 with the gold-colored contacts facing downwards. For Dual SIM models, with the gold-colored contacts facing downwards, place the primary SIM or USIM card on the tray 1 and the secondary SIM or USIM card on the tray 2

Note: SIM card tray 2 also serves as the memory card tray. However, do not insert a nano-SIM card and a micro SD card in tray 2 at the same time. Doing so can cause damage the SIM card or the device.

4 Gently press the SIM or USIM card into the tray to secure it
5 Insert the tray back into the tray slot

Note 

• Use only a nano-SIM card. 

• Always make sure the tray is dry.

• If you insert the tray into your device while the tray is wet, your device may be damaged. Fully insert the tray into
the tray slot to prevent liquid from entering your device

• Dual SIM models: In some areas, data transfer speeds may be slower if two SIM cards are inserted in the device than when one SIM card is inserted

 

Samsung is not responsible for any damages or inconveniences caused by lost or stolen cards. Use caution not to lose or let others use the SIM or USIM card. Some LTE services may not be available depending on the service provider. For more information about service availability, contact your service provider.
