Many who buy a new tablet, are faced with one problem. It lies in the fact that not everyone knows how to properly plug in the device SIM-card and, conversely, take it out of him. With all this at first glance, everything seems normal and natural. But it is not so. It is inconvenient movement and you can even break the tablet computer. Therefore, it is not worth the risk. over, we will tell you in detail about how to change the SIM card in the tablet.
How to install the SIM card?
First of all, you must carefully examine the instructions to the tablet and find a paragraph describing the type of SIM-card that supports the device. Some models can only install microSim cards, while others support standard sim cards.
The general algorithm for installing the SIM card:
- Turn off the power of the device.
- Open the SIM card slot (by pushing or using a special paper clip) and slide out the tray.
- Install the SIM card in such a way that the logo of the operator faces upwards and the contacts towards the back of the device.
- Put the tray back and turn the tablet on.
If done correctly, the device should connect to the network and you can surf the internet or make calls.
Important! Some models may have a connector on the back of the tablet instead of the tray, such as the Lenovo Yoga Tab 8, so the SIM card installation in this case will be carried out differently.
How to remove the universal (cut off) SIM card if it’s stuck
Today I will write about a burning issue, most likely for millions of users. With the appearance of new phone models, manufacturers wanted to change the SIM card slot for some reason. Vida-changes in mobile devices have contributed to the change in sim card size, namely the large card gradually turned into a micro and then a nano. At first, the user tried to cut his own SIM card using all sorts of manuals from the network. And here many operators have decided, it would seem, to help the consumer by issuing universal cards for any format, after that the adventures began, the SIM-card began to get stuck in the tray, and to pull it out painlessly without special knowledge and skills is not easy. After reading this tip, you will learn in what cases you can get it out yourself if it is stuck and why it happened.
Suppose you accidentally installed incorrectly cut, universal card, consisting of pre-cut frames (billet from the operator) in the phone. After cutting the SIM card involuntarily gets burrs, and in the case of the frames the discrepancy in the adapters. Imagine that the card somehow shifted in the tray after inserting into the SIM holder, such a card will be difficult to get. Owners of smart phones which have a combined tray for SIM, I recommend this topic “Lifehack two SIM cards and flash card combo” in one tray.
What will happen if the SIM card is not correctly removed
Pay attention on the picture below, you can see that the SIM socket has six contacts, which resemble a fishing hook, simply speaking the contacts slope to one side, and if you insert a SIM card with burrs or with displaced adapters, then during the pulling it can get stuck.
And if it happened, do not try to use force when taking out such a SIM, otherwise the least that will happen, you will break the contacts, in the worst case you will damage the phone itself.
The SIM card is stuck in the handset and you should take it to a normal technician. If there are no such specialists nearby and you dare to take out a stuck SIM-card by yourself, then read the instruction.
How to get the SIM card out if it is stuck
To perform this operation will need a small set of tools, it will include a sharp tweezers, plus any strip of flexible and durable material. In my case I used a piece of plastic bottle.
Take the plastic and cut a strip of desired width under the slot SIM card or as shown in the picture under the width of the card you want us, the length of the strip should be such that you can easily hold it with your fingers.
This preparation of our tools and devices can be considered complete.
Instructions for extracting the SIM card which is stuck without disassembling the phone
So the extraction device in the form of a pre-prepared strip of thin and at the same time durable material is ready, in our case as previously mentioned (a strip from a plastic bottle), tweezers in front of us. Let’s start, take the plastic strip in hand and try to slip it slowly into the slot, between the SIM card and the card receiver, while trying to raise the SIM card itself, if it is in an additional frame then its also. At the initial stage of the SIM card do not pull the SIM on itself, but instead push it as deep as possible, thereby freeing the outermost contacts of the SIM holder from pinching.
After you have managed to stick the plastic strip in the extreme position of the SIM holder, we take the tweezers in our hands and slowly try to get the SIM card, in cases with the adapter and his (perform these actions without fanaticism, if it does not go, we correct the plastic lining).
This method is suitable for any phone in which the SIM-card is stuck, as well as any other card. The main task is that our gasket would go between the contacts in the form of spring (hooks) and the SIM card itself, thereby unlocking the mesh.
That is the end of our small instruction to get the stuck SIM-card out. I recommend in case of such failure to contact a specialized service center, and in the absence of such to use these instructions very carefully without fanaticism with maximum accuracy. This kind of instructions you can find in the “Help” section, where will be placed topics with various advice, both on computers and mobile devices. If you have any questions, write in the form “Ask question”. Regards to you!
