Insert the SIM cards

Insert the SIM cards
  1. Slide the SIM card in the SIM card slot with the contact area face down.
  2. If you have a dual-SIM phone, slide the second SIM in the SIM2 slot. Both SIM cards are available at the same time when the device is not being used, but while one SIM card is active, for example, making a call, the other may be unavailable.
