Cut up a plastic card like a coffee loyalty card or something that is the same thickness as the sim, and make it the same width as the sim
Before gluing the tip of this card, push it in the slot to engage the release mechanism inside.
Your trying to get the mechanism on the removal cycle where the sim will be closer to coming out.
once that is done put glue on the plastic card tip.
Wipe all excess glue from the flat surfaces. you don't need much glue at all. if you bought strong grade super glue it tends fuse to sim and plastic together. so less is actually more.

let it dry well past the curing time as its better to be safe than sorry, lets face it, the sims not going anywhere and l doubt you need to make an emergency phone call.

then if your plastic card is close to the thickness of the sim card as mine was, it will depress all the sim contacts and come
out with suprisingly little effort. it felt on mine like you should have been able to tap it out in the first place.

SOURCE: I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab from a Telstra

the galaxy tab will be locked to the provider you got it from, which is why your sim isnt being recognised. You will need to unlock the tab to allow it to accept any sim. To get it unlocked you need to request an unlock code from Telstra

Sim card for Samsung Galaxy tablet 4?


A SIM card is for 4G LTE internet service, so if you have a Samsung Tab 4 ensure it is 4G capable before trying to insert a SIM card. If you try to insert a SIM card into a SD Card slot you may damage the card reader.

That being said, I believe it is located on the right side of the tablet. Sometimes the SD Card slot and the Sim card slot are right next to each other. Once you open the cover that reveals the slots there should be small icons for the SD Card and the Sim card. Normally, the SIM card slot will have a little notch on the icon. Attached are guides with pictures.

Is a samsung galaxy tab 4 7.0 compatible with straighttalk ?


It depends on which model of the Galaxy Tab 4 you have. The unlocked Galaxy Tab 4 3G is compatible with the Straight Talk GSM network and has a SIM card slot. There is a Wi-fi only model which will only talk to a cellular network through a hot-spot device.

I hope this helps.

How do i find puk code to unlock sim card to a samsung galaxy 3 tablet


As I understand from personal experience, the PUK code is only available from the service provider. You need PUK code after you entered the wrong PIN 3 times for the SIM card. Call your service provider or get a new SIM card.

Can i insert sim in samsung galaxy tab. 10.1 ?


There should be a little door on the bottom right of the device that you can insert the sim card.
Open the door, insert the sim with the gold contacts down and close the door.
Here's a video as well!
