What is your mobile model?To insert simcard,the following conditions should be satisfied....
1)The mobile should be unlocked to accept the sim card
2)The mobile should have the sim slot (most CDMA phones do not have that provision)
3)The simcard size should be supported by mobile phone.
Now,if your mobile is locked with a particular network then you need to
unlock it.For that you can either approach the respective network
provider or third party unlocking services like Simpleunlocking.com or unBBlock.com (This is specifically for
Blackberry phones) and unlock your mobile.Once your mobile is unlocked
the sim slot will either be in the side or above or below the battery
depending on your mobile model.If you search in Google you probably will
get a more clear idea about where your sim slot is located.Once you
find the sim slot remove the sim card and note down the position;
replace it with the old sim card(it should support the phone sim size
I am having a Samsung Nexus SCHi515 with Verizon network( It has a sim slot) I have taken the phone to India. I thought it could be unlocked and used in some CDMA network( Reliance) here since one of my friend have unlocked LG droid 3,(non-sim model),verizon network. But I have heard from some people that phone with sim slot cannot be unlocked and only the non sim model can be unlocked and registered with the Reliance CDMA network in India. Is it not possible to unlock the model with sim slot? Kindly help me out.

No matter what network your Nokia N95 phone currently runs on, you can unlock it---or "flash" it---to run on any GSM network. You will only be able to use your unlocked Nokia N95 phone on networks that use SIM cards---such as T-Mobile and AT&T---and not on CDMA networks such as Sprint and Verizon, which do not provide SIM cards.

Take note of the 15-digit IMEI number printed on it. At this time, also remove the SIM card and write down the numbers printed on the back of it. The SIM card is the small, white data chip in the silver cradle right next to the sticker. You will need these numbers to obtain your Nokia unlock code.
2 Request a Nokia N95 unlock code from your service provider. If they cannot provide you with an unlock code, you can buy one online.
3 Replace the SIM card, battery and cover. Fully charge your handset.
4 Turn on your handset and type "#PW+".
5 Enter the unlock code given from your phone company or website. Make sure you dial the number exactly as it was given to you. If you dial this number incorrectly three times, you will be permanently locked out of your handset.
6 Dial "+1#". At this point, the screen on your Nokia N95 should read "SIM Restriction Off."
Inserting SIM Card 1 Switch your handset off and remove the back cover and battery.
2 Remove the SIM card.
3 Insert the new SIM card into the SIM card slot. Now that the phone has been unlocked, this can be a SIM card from any U.S. service provider that uses SIM cards.
4 Replace the back cover and battery and switch the cell phone on. The screen should now read the name of the new service provider
this is a CDMA phone which does not have a SIM card slot. you will need to contact verizon or another cdma provide to activate the phone.
please note that it may be locked to verizon only. so you will need to contact verizon to unlock the cellphone if you wish to use it on another carrier.
Take off the back battery civer, remove battery the sim slot should be under battery on most nokia models if you see no sim slot then your model is not GPRS its CDMA and requires a CDMA provider so check and make sure, Even tho you model may have one or the other there are two form factors to your model phone so this all depends on the formfactor and what system it was designed for. But like i said if you see no sim slot chances are its CDMA.
Best of luck to your please do rante and leave feedback ether way if you have any questions please ask, thank for using fixya.com
the phone is preprogramed with a network, so despite having a sim slot it does not necessarily have to cary a sim to work. what he means is how can he make the phone use another network that uses CDMA sims. i have this problem too
