How do I insert or remove the SIM card for my Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6?

Your device uses a microSIM card to provide you with access to your wireless service provider's 4G LTE mobile data network.

Insert the 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. Locate and open the SIM card cover on the side of your device.
  2. Carefully insert the SIM card, with the gold contacts facing down, into the SIM card slot until the card locks into place.

    Note: Make sure the angled corner of the card is positioned correctly. If the SIM card is not inserted correctly, the device will not detect it. Reorient the card and slide it back into the slot.
  3. Close the SIM card cover.

Remove the SIM Card

  1. Open the SIM card cover on the side of your device.
  2. Gently press on the SIM card to release it, and then carefully remove it from your device.
  3. Close the SIM card cover.
