    • Cut a piece of tape/ paper approximately the size of your Sim Card and secure it to the back side of the Sim. Be sure to trim any excess.

      • It's important that you place the tape on the back side of the Sim Card as it will block the communication with the device if placed on the front side

    • Slowly slide the Sim Card tray back into the device. It should be a smooth transition, don't force the tray in.

    • If the tray is still loose you can keep adding tape/paper until it's no longer loose.
