I want to know what other Samsung phones my SIM card from my Samsung Galaxy S4 will fit in. Can you tell me?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone. The screen is damaged and I want to switch the SIM card to another Samsung phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 uses a microSIM card. The first Samsung device to use a microSIM card was the Samsung Galaxy S4, and since then all Samsung phones have used that size of SIM card. However, if you want to use an older Samsung Galaxy phone with your current microSIM card, you can purchase one of the adapters listed in the VisiHow article below that will allow you to use your smaller SIM card in a larger slot. The Samsung Galaxy S3 and older Samsung Galaxy devices all use the standard SIM card size, so you can purchase a microSIM to mini-SIM adapter and you will be able to use your current SIM card in an older Samsung Galaxy phone. You can also use the microSIM card from your Samsung Galaxy S4 in any other type of phone, such as other Android phones, Windows Phones, and even iPhones. If you don't want to purchase an adapter to use in older Android devices, you can also get a new SIM card (often for free) from your carrier's nearest store. The customer service representative in the store will help you find a card that fits the phone you're looking to use so you don't have any issues connecting it to your carrier's network.
