How to Remove Your SIM
1 Turn off your device by pressing the power on/off key.
2 Your SIM card fits into a slot on the left side of your device behind the end cap. Remove the end cap using
the finger notch:
3 You will see the SIM card in its slot; press the end of the SIM in toward the device and release. The SIM
should spring gently out of its slot.
4 Remove the SIM carefully.

5 Replace the end cap by pressing the prongs in slightly and inserting the cap. Make sure the cap is flush with
the case.

How to Insert Your SIM

1 Remove the end cap covering the SIM slot using the finger notch.
2 Press the SIM card into its slot with the gold contacts facing down and the cut corner going in first, beneath
the Menu button.
When you release the SIM make sure it is locked into position and it doesn’t spring out.
3 Replace the end cap by pressing the prongs in slightly and inserting the cap. Make sure the cap is flush with
the case.

How do you set it up for at&t

You shouldnt have to do anything to have it call. Do you have you sim card insered correctly? do you have dual sim card option and if so make sure your card is not in slot tw and you are using sim 1 option. On the dual sim card phones SIM 2 is placed upside down against the circuit board, and SIM 1 slot is facing correctly chip is on down side, and slightly elevated off the circuit. on your front display you should see AT&T and the SIM card location it is in. You do however have to set it up to receive picture text and internet acess. I can hep you with that also

How to change the simcard of my apple 3g iphone?

The SIM card in the iPhone is removable, but it's hidden. To remove the SIM card, you need a paper clip.

We are checking to see if this voids your iPhone warranty. If you are concerned that it might, please don't perform this task.

The iPhone's SIM card is located behind this door.
1. Locate the SIM Card Slot
The slot is located at the top of the iPhone, between the headphone jack and the power button.
The paper clip is a valuable tech tool.
2. Open the Slot
Take your paper clip and insert it into the little hole. Then firmly push down until the slot pops up.
3. Remove the SIM Card
The SIM card is in a cradle. You can pop the card out of the cradle.

To replace the SIM card, put the card back in the cradle. The cradle and card are notched in a way that forces you to replace the card on the proper side. Then just slide the card back into the iPhone.

Thanks alot,
Sanjeev Kumar

Phone code

The phone code locks your t830 to the inserted SIM card, if you change the SIM the unit asks for this code. If you don't know the code (ebay?) there are three possibilities:
1. ask the formerly owner for the key
2. insert the "old" SIM-Card and delete the key in the phone-settings-menu by pressing "forgot code" and entering only the SIM-Card-Code
3. send your device to FSC with your bill (ebay?)
