Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today, we're going to show you how to remove a SIM card from your Microsoft Lumia 535 smartphone. This is a very simple task, however it can sometimes be frustrating trying to figure out exactly what you need to do to remove the SIM card, if you're pressing too hard, or if perhaps even you're going to break your phone trying to do it. Sometimes, SIM cards can be rather difficult to get out.

Steps

  1. 1
    The very first thing you need to do is find the Microsoft logo at the top of your phone, look for the front facing camera, identify the headphone jack and the camera flash at the top
    .
    This lets us know that we're holding the top of our phone, which we want to do.

    Making sure you're actually holding the phone like shown in this video (on the front glass and the back), you're going to press down here on the bottom left hand side of your phone
    .
    This will pop the back off of the phone.

    I'm going to take my thumb and put it in the notch below the battery and I'm just going to give it a little push up, which is going to push the battery out
    .
    Be careful not to drop your battery. If you drop these batteries, they can break. It's unusual, but I have managed to break one myself.
