How to insert a SIM card into Sony Ericsson w850i?

There are times that happen to be us buying a new phone from somewhere, reliable that requires us to insert a SIM card on our own. Here is a quick guide to share with you for those that are using this beautiful W850i from Sony Ericsson.

First of all, you’ll have to turn the phone with the back/battery cover facing you.

By placing the fingers in it’s place, without touching or smearing the screen at all, GENTLY apply mild force to push upward from your thumb while your index finger acts as a support. And without much cow strength, you’ll be able to pull the cover off. Upon inspection you’ll first spot the battery in its place.

Locate the bottom of the phone as you can see there’s a spot on the bottom left/right that you can easily pick up the battery…

And lift it away.

With the battery taken off it’s place, make sure you place it in somewhere safe temporary, while on the other hand, you are now prepared to insert the SIM card into the slot provided inside the back of the phone. As you can see on the picture above, are the eletronic chip that stores most of your phonebook numbers and information which is very important on not scratching it.

With the eletronic chip facing downward, gently push the SIM card into the slot.

And without much force, you will be able to fit it perfectly. And this applies to most of other phone models as the SIM cards has standard sizes. Enjoy!

    hi there, it’s best that you make sure you insert the sim card according to the slot, as the ‘slot’ will only able to fit into one direction

    Regards there,

    No really, try to hold down the phone and wrap it around with a cloth. See if it provides a better grip for you.
