Question about Cell Phones

The SIM card does not fit into the opening. It extends widthwise over the open shiny metal area onto the black area. Is this okay, so long as the gold metal section is on the bottom?

Without any disturbance for gold contact you can cut it off the plastic area of the SIM card and use.

How to install video card?

Hello Ruel

I have step by step procedure about installing video card.
1. Turn off your PC, unplug it, and remove your computer's case. "Your computer should have either a PCI-Express 16x or AGP slot for your card. The card won't fit into the wrong slot, so you can't go wrong. But don't confuse your computer's thin memory slots for its video card slot."
2. With a small screwdriver, remove the screw holding in the old card or the metal cover. "Don't lose that screw! You need it to secure the new card in place."
3. If you're replacing an old card, pull it up and out of the slot (left). "If you're not replacing an old card, remove the metal cover from the back of your computer (right)."
4. Hold the card by its edges and position it over the correct slot. "The edge with the shiny metal bracket should face toward the back of your computer. (That shiny bracket replaces the cover, if you removed one.)"
5. Line up the tabs and notches on the card's bottom with the notches in the slot. Push the card slowly into the slot. "You may need to rock the card back and forth gently. When the card pops in, you can feel it come to rest. Don't force it!"
6. If the video slot has it, bend out the flexible plastic retaining clip that fits over a tab on the end of the video card. "When the card fits into the slot, release the clip, letting it hold the card in place."
7. Secure the card in the slot with the screw you removed in Step 3, then plug the computer back in, turn it on, and see whether Windows recognizes and installs the card. "Windows usually recognizes newly installed cards and sets them up to work correctly."
8. If everything's working, put your PC's cover back on. "If something goes wrong, turn off your computer, unplug it, and make sure you've seated the card correctly."

Be careful not to touch any chips. Touch as little as possible on the video card or inside your machine.
If possible, do the installation in an non-carpeted area to avoid static.
If possible, use the slot with the most open space around it.
If you do not understand these instructions or you lack good manual dexterity, have a qualified technician install the video card for you.

Best Regards

Places of simcard in LG model cx9200

  • Power off your cell phone.

  • Remove the back battery plate. Depending on the make and model of the cell phone, you will either have to slide the panel off by applying pressure with your thumb or by sliding a small latch and then removing the plate.

  • Take out the battery.

    Look for the SIM card door. It will be shiny, silver and will be clearly marked. You'll also be able to see your SIM card.

  • Open your SIM card door by sliding it open (follow the arrow directions on the door) and sliding out your SIM card.

    How do I insert the sim card, can't open the phone and no instructions came with it?

    Open the back lid where the battery is. Face the screen and on the right side you will see just above the camera button a part from the shiny thing can be pulled. Just use your nail and push from where the case from front meets the shiny siding. It will pop up towards back. Careful it doesn't come completely of. It will be like going through a page. No face the sim card with the gold side facing against the screen and slide in.Good luck.

    How do you replace the sim card on a nokia 2125?

    The problem is that the 2125 is a CDMA phone and doesn't use a sim card. You can slide a sim card onto the inside of the metal casing that flips up but the phone lacks the components to reach the metal terminals on the sim card and thus read the sim card.

    Make sure the power wires from the ceiling mount are still in the electric box. Then have them come from the side near the screw mounting area. In otherwords, not through the center hole. In the center of the black metal part - there is where you put the reciever. It will fit literally resting on the black metal.
