Not likely because of having to heat solder.

There is a product called "wire glue", if you really need the info on the sim.

Otherwise, have your provider replace it.

Droped my boost mobile phone in toilet. My nephew dried out phone and removed sim card. I bent sim card a little inserting it back. Now im getting a no sim card alert. Do i need a new sim card.

If phone was on when dropped into water the electronics may have been damaged. Clean all sim card contacts and phone contacts and reinsert. If nada, it is damaged.

U might try another sim card to see if that works.

How do i insert sim card into Apple I Phone

On the right hand side of your mobile about half way down you will see the sim card tray - you should've got a little metal tool with the phone when you had it to release this - if not, use the end of a paperclip and push it in the hole - the sim card try will pop out and you put the sim card in there and push the tray back in

Can you please advise me on removing the back to fit my new sim card Regards


To remove the battery and/or cover from the phone, follow the steps and diagrams below:

To remove the cover, lift up (1) press and slide the section of the phone upward.

Installing the SIM card, make sure the gold contacts of the SIM card are facing down before attempting the insertion. Slide the SIM card into the SIM card socket.

Note: The data stored on the SIM card can be damaged if the card is sctrached or bent during installation, so be very careful when installing the SIM card.

Slide the battery into the compartment so that the tabs on the end align with the slots at the bottom of the device and the metal contacts line up with the those on the device. Lightly press down on the battery until it slips into place

Lastly, Place the battery cover onto the back of the phone (the tabs at the top of the battery cover should interlock in the body chassis). Lower the battery cover down until it is flush with the phone.

Asks to install sim card when it's already installed

Here's what you need to do:

1. Remove the SIM card and wipe the gold metal on the SIM with a clean cloth.
2. Re-insert the SIM card.

If the phone still ask to install the SIM, then try another SIM to isolate the problem. If same problem occurs, contact an authorized repair shop and have them repair the SIM card slot.

Have a great day!

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).
