Re: Where is the SIM card on a SCH-u740

Again, if you were familiar with cell phone technologies you would know that CDMA phones do not use SIM cards. Only GSM phones do. CMDA carriers like Verizon, Sprint and Alltel will never have SIM cards in their phones. The contacts are stored directly to the phone and in the case of Verizon, you have Backup Assistant which sends your contacts to a safe place.


Carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile are the only carriers that use SIM cards since they are GSM companies.

I have this phone. There is NO sim card in this phone. What Michael Herc posted above is precisely correct. Ive had my phone completely disassembled and know for sure there is no sim.

Okay, Obviously you guys aren't tooo quick on picking up on things..... First off if you looked for it when you recieved the phone...and Its not there. Thats because its.... sold seperatly.(Also mentioned in the manual) So Yes, Verzion phones are sim card capable....u just gotta get one.

How can i insert sim card

I think your phone is CDMA, not GSM, for what it won't have a SIM slot (which uses to be located under the battery, on many GSM phones). You can confirm this by reading its user manual. In case you happen to miss it, you can download it from this location.

Really hope I'm wrong.

"Initial Programming Needed"

The manual can be found at this link on Samsung's website.

You'll need a SIM card and Verizon cell service. If you're not using Verizon, you'll need to get the phone unlocked from the Verizon service so it can be used on your provider's cell service. Your provider should be able to help you with this.

hi thanks for using fixya!

Unfortunately, you cannot. Verizon phones have integrated SIM cards that you cannot take out. You cant unlock a verizon phone.

Don't know lock sch u740

Below are two known methods for unlocking your phone.

To unlock a Samsung turn the phone off take the sim card and type the following code *#pw+15853649247w#

Master reset(unlock) #*7337# (for the new samsungs E700 x600 but not E710)

Good luck, hope one of those works for your phone. Not 100% guaranteed to work on all models. Thank you for stopping by Fixya!

SIM card?

Well since this phone is a CDMA phone, there would be no SIM card!


SIM cards are only for GSM phones!
