FAQ on SIM Cards
- What do you mean by SIM?
It means the Subscriber Identity Module. It has a tiny chip on a plastic jacket that snugly fits into the pocket. Every phone has a SIM, physical or electronic. We can activate an e-SIM digitally, without the need for any physical cards.
Its job is to store details to connect to a network to surf the Internet, call others, and deliver SMS using the 2G/3G/4G/5G system. You can remove it and put it inside other devices. Nowadays, people save contacts and messages on the cloud, but you can still keep them on SIM.
- What companies keep on the chip?
Every SIM has a unique IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) and an MSISDN ID (Mobile Subscriber Integrated Services Digital Network Number), i.e., your contact number.
- How do I activate it?
The activation process is quite simple. Provide valid documents to the service provider who handed you the SIM. Ensure that it is validated and in an unlocked condition.
- How do I remove it from my phone?
In older devices, take off the back cover. But Nowadays, the SIM tray is available on the side or top of the phone and should be removed with a PIN tool or a paper clip by inserting in the small hole beside the tray area. Do it gently, or you may permanently damage the phone or tray, leaving the phone useless.
