    Now we need to identify the battery release notch, put your finger in there and take the battery out.
    Note that I have only been using my hands with no tools. Do not use screwdrivers, sharp objects, or anything else. This is all easily done by hand.

    Set the phone down and get your SIM card ready.
    This is a modern SIM card where I can keep it big or pop out a Micro SIM card. In this case, I need to pop out the small one.

    The SIM Card is out so I'm going to slide it into slot number 1.
    Pay attention to the cut edge on the picture of the SIM card and match that with the cut edge of the real SIM card.

Questions and Answers

My Lumia can't read a SIM on my port?

My Lumia can't read a SIM card. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: One hand of a SIM card read is off

Your SIM card reader is broken. This is a common issue with some of the Nokia Lumia phones. There are replacement parts online that you can purchase and repair yourself or send it to a technician.

I inserted the SIM but the tower points are not coming and outgoing problem?

I inserted the SIM but the tower points are not coming and outgoing problem

Reformat your device to see if the SIM card is activated on the reboot. Usually, this solves the issue but you can troubleshoot further by putting your phone in 2G instead of automatic. Also, you need to be using a SIM from your the network who provided you the phone unless you have unlocked it from the carrier. No new SIM from a different network will work unless the phone has been jailbroken.
