SIM card is the small chip that connects your mobile to the network operator and it enables you to make & receive calls as well as send and receive messages. If you have an active data plan it also connects you to the internet. With the evolution of technology, slots for SIM cards have also evolved and continue to advance in this fast-changing technology scenario. Many smart ways of placing SIM cards in phones have been invented and as mobile companies are competing with each other to produce better & better products every time, they are also competing in this front. Now, it’s time for the micro sd sim card.
Older Way of Putting SIM and SD Card
After knowing about SIM cards, let us move on to the slots where SIM cards & micro SD cards are placed. There are three options to date that are popular. The first one is ‘behind the battery’. The majority of older phones have their SIM card slot behind the battery. You need to remove the phone’s outer case and take the battery out. Look for an empty slot and a SIM card icon. The second option is ‘Next to the battery’ which will require you to remove your phone’s outer case and the battery to fit it in. The third & last option is ‘The hidden outside slot’ which features SIM-card slots on the outside, so there’s no need to take the back off.
