Introduction

Use this guide to replace the SIM card in your Galaxy S6.

  1. Insert a paper clip or SIM eject tool into the hole in the SIM card slot on the power button side of the phone. Press to eject the SIM card tray.
    • Insert a paper clip or SIM eject tool into the hole in the SIM card slot on the power button side of the phone.

    • Press to eject the SIM card tray.

    • Don't press too hard or you may damage the SIM card tray.

    It really needs to be stated at the outset that if doing this repair to replace the daughterboard, there is a high likelihood that the display will be destroyed (even if you don’t break the display, the foil backing on it will likely be destroyed rendering it unusable). The PDF version of this guide states this at the beginning, but this online version does not.

What if the tray broke, can I order one

The Samsung galaxy s6 does not come with tray for the sim card. It has an internal memory chip. How do you get to the internal memory chip?

I made a mistake, got the sim card mixed up with the memory chip.

I replaced the battery in my Galaxy S6, but when I put it back together it no longer recognized my Sim Card. I tried my sim card in a different Galaxy S6 which recognized the card. I am afraid I will cause further damage. Any recommendations?
