Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Insert or Remove a Micro SIM Card

For some reason, you may need to insert or remove a SIM card in your Samsung Galaxy S5, for instance: when you buy a new or used Samsung Galaxy S5 and need to insert a micro SIM card into it so that you can use your phone to make calls or send text messages, when you want to change your SIM card so that you need to remove the current one from your phone, etc. In this phone, the SIM card slot is located at the top side of the battery socket, under the micro SD card slot. As a note, since the provided slot is designed to hold a micro SD card, if yours is a regular or mini SIM card then you have to trim it first before insert it into your phone.

  3. Pull out the battery from its place with your thumb or finger using the small notch at the bottom side of the battery socket.
