When using a different SIM in your phone it may seem difficult to switch out your SIM. Here are easy steps on how to do it.
In an iPhone 4 series, 5 series, and 6 series the SIM slot is located on the right hand side of the phone towards the middle. On the SIM slot there is a small pin hole that needs to be pressed either with a SIM eject tool or even a small paper clip. Once you have pressed on the hole the SIM tray should pop out with ease. Then you just need to switch the SIMs, and you must make sure that the metal chip is on the bottom of the SIM. Make sure you put your home SIM somewhere safe as you will be needing it once you get back! Once the SIM has been placed correctly in the SIM tray insert the tray back into the SIM slot. Make sure you do not insert the SIM into the SIM slot without the SIM tray as it may cause damage to SIM and the phone, and will most likely get stuck
For android phones the SIM slot is usually located under the battery. Make sure to remove the back cover on the phone, and then remove the battery.
- On most of the androids the SIM slot is located on the upper right hand side of the back of the phone. To release the SIM from the slot you need to lightly press on the side of the SIM that is sticking out, and then the SIM should pop right out. When you insert your other SIM in the slot make sure that the side with the metal chip is facing down. Also make sure that the slightly cut side of the SIM is facing in.
- On some of the older androids the SIM slot is located towards the center of the back of the phone. Press lightly on the SIM while sliding it out of the SIM slot.
- On some of the newer androids the SIM slot is on the side of the phone. For example the LG G3, some of the new Sony Xperias, some of the new Nexus phones etc. Some of them need a SIM eject tool since they have a SIM tray, and some of them you just need to press lightly on the SIM in order for it to pop out. When inserting the SIMs in the phones with SIM trays make sure you insert the SIM with the tray. Again make sure that the side with the metal chip is facing down.
