Can u put a tracfone sim card into any phone

Using the sim card from your tracfone in another phone is possible if both of the phones are unlocked. This means that the sim card if inserted into any phone, that phone will recognize the sim card. If you place your Tracfone sim card in any other carrier's phone and it doesn't work you can call trachoma and they can unlock the sim card.

Insert sim how can i do

The SIM card goes under the battery in the back of the phone. First you'll need to remove the battery cover, then remove the battery. Insert the SIM card with the gold contacts facing down and the notched corner toward the inside. Reinsert the battery and close the cover. I hope this helps. Good luck

Sim card

Remove the battery cover (bottom half of the back of the phone) by gently pressing in and sliding down. Remove the battery, and the SIM card goes under the metal holder. Look carefully for the symbol that shows where the "cut corner" goes, and make sure the gold contacts on the SIM are facing down (ie towards the phone).

Hi I got the same phone today.
I assume you are trying to install the SIM card as you stated and not the memory SD card as some are talking about.
My manual just shows a picture!
Take out the battery hold the phone with the bottom toward you look at the hole where the battery was.
On the bottom of the square there is a slot in the middle that the SIM card slides into.
Place the SIM card flat against the bottom of the hole where the battery was with the notch as stated and slide it down towards you into place. The SIM just about disappears into the bottom edge of the battery hole. Thats what my manual showed about inserting theSIM card.
Haven't inserted a SD card yet.Hope this helps.
