Is it possible that the phone has no sim card slot (built-in?)

Hi there, I was happy to win a lost-and-found-auction and own a Sky Vega Racer IM-A780L of possibly Korean origin now.

I managed to start it but of course I would like to insert my own SIM card, and now I am stuck with not finding the slot.

Under the cover, there is only a Micro-SD-card slot (plus the battery slot).

Is it possible that the phone is using a built-in kind of SIM (like some navigation devices do)? Or is this very unlikely? Have many thanks for any help in advance, and many regards, Matthias

It is definitely possible. I have owned some Samsung smartphones that were Verizon pre-pay or pay as you go that do not have a SIM slot. If the phone was manufactured for a specific carrier then it may or may not have a SIM slot. Most new cell phones are or can be carrier unlocked which allows you to use a number of different carriers SIM cards. Not all phones have this option and are locked to a specific carrier.

Have many thanks for your good help, dear Burnie. That fixed it, I don't have to look any further! It is a LG+ branded Sky Vega Racer phone of Pantech's, while I don't know about the carrier (US or Corean?)... Best regards, Matthias.

Hey Mathias, glad to help. You are correct this phone doesn't have a sim slot. I have heard other users of this same model use a bluetooth device called gmate, which allows you to use a different gsm sim on the phone. If your carrier uses a gsm sim card then you could use your sim with this device after all.

Here is a link to gmate if interested. http://www.skyroam.com/skyroam/index.php...
