How do I insert the SIM card into my Samsung Galaxy Core Prime™?

Your device uses a SIM card to provide you with access to your wireless service provider’s 4G LTE cellular network. Important! 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.

Insert a SIM Card

  1. Gently pull the back cover off your device, using the slot on the side.
  2. Lift the cover up and away from the device.
    Remove Back Cover
  3. Remove your device's battery.
  4. Carefully slide the card into the SIM card slot.
    Insert SIM Card
    Note: Make sure the SIM card’s gold contacts face into the device and the angled corner of the card is positioned correctly. If the card is not inserted correctly, the device will not detect it. Reorient the card and slide it back into the slot. There is a microSD™ card slot above the SIM card slot. Be sure to insert the SIM card into the correct one.
  5. Insert the battery into the opening on the back of your device, making sure the contacts align. Gently press down to secure the battery.
    Insert Battery
  6. Replace the back cover.
  7. Press along the edge of the back cover until you have a secure seal and it clicks into place.
