Questions and Answers

Can you put a Galaxy Note2 SIM card in an iPhone?

Yes. Galaxy Note II requires a micro SIM, as does an iPhone, so it would work well in both devices. So if you want to attain a 4G LTE, you should contact first your AT&T to turn on the LTE in your SIM; otherwise it will only activate the 4G.

Considering the fact that you are not the first owner of the phone and there could be some issues with the phone you purchased. Here are some possible reason why it is not working:

1. Possible that the phone is lock to a dedicated network provider. Meaning, it can only read SIM card from that network provider. Like AT&T, Verizon, T Mobile and any other. In order for you to use your SIM card, you must unlock the phone first.

2. Another reason could be that the phone has hardware issues already which the owner did not informed your about it. What you can try to do first on this is to perform a Hard Reset on the phone then retry the SIM and see if it reads it or use different SIM cards.

3. It is also possible that the phone was a postpaid plan from a network carrier and was being blocked or deactivated. If this was a stolen product or for any reason, it is best that you contact the person and asked about the phone to suits you to resolve this problem.

Again, if your phone is a locked phone. You need to unlock it, you can purchase an Xsim Adapter to do the unlocking process. If the phone has an hardware issue, it is best that you contact Samsung service center to check its internal components. Lastly, if the phone was block or deactivated by the network carrier it is best to contact the person that you purchased the phone from.

I'm trying to move my SIM card from a Galaxy S3 to a Galaxy S4, but it seems to be too big?

I removed my SIM card and tried to put it into the S4, but the edge won't go in.

Both the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 use the micro SIM card, so there shouldn't be a problem putting the card in the Galaxy S4. Make sure that you're not trying to put the card into the SD cart slot, as the micro SIM is too big and belongs in the other slot.
