Introduction

    • Prior to removing the SIM card, you must first remove the outer back casing of the phone/ handheld device.

    • To remove the backing, use your thumb or forefinger to push down on the top of the device. Refer to the picture labeled "Figure 1" to locate the place you need to push down on. After pushing this "button", the outer back casing will come off easily. Please be careful when removing the piece as it can be sharp at the other end of the metal casing.

    • After removal of the outer back casing, (which is detailed further with images in Step 2), the battery should now be exposed as seen in Figure 2.
