Insert a SIM Card in the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Edited by David Mason, Eng, VisiHow, Anonymous and 1 other

Any time you switch phones or change phone carriers from one to another, you need to move your SIM card around. Usually this is a fairly simple process. However there are times where it's not. Sometimes you might have difficulty inserting a new SIM card because you don't know where to put it. Other times you may have a SIM card tray like the one in a new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, where there are two places for SIM cards. This just adds to the confusion, because putting the SIM card in the wrong slot means you may not be getting your SIM card to work the way you want to. Setting up primary and secondary functions when your card is in the slot other than the one you think it's in can cause problems for you.

    Once you are certain you have the correct size SIM card, you can start.
    Take your SIM card removal tool and place it in the hole on the top left side of your phone. Note that unlike the Galaxy S6 Edge, the SIM card removal tool does not actually sit in the hole. This to say that it will not go into the hole and rest without support. Instead you must push on it once it is in, and hold it. After pushing on it you will note that the SIM card tray slides out slightly.

    When this happens, remove the SIM card tool.
    Then, grasp the SIM card tray with your fingers and carefully and gently pull out. It is extremely important that you are careful and gentle in this process due to the fact that the SIM card tray is plastic. Excessive pressure can damage or break it. We strongly recommend that if you are purchasing your Galaxy S7 Edge in a new shop or Samsung store, that you inspect inspect the SIM card tray before you leave to be sure it is not damaged in any way.

    SIM cards and microSD cards always go into the SIM card tray face down.
    This means the gold part of the SIM card or microSD card should always be facing down. In the image below you will see that the SIM card has been placed into the tray properly.

What if the slot does not slide out enough for you to grip it?

It pushes out but just a little and not enough to hold on to it. The SIM card slog does not slide out as it is demonstrated in the article. I have tried: I inserted the tool, the slot barely slides, I have tried using the tool to pull out the slot with no avail. I think it was caused by: I am not really sure of what could be causing this, so I am now seeking help
