Depending on your service provider and where you purchased your device, the micro SIM card might already be inserted.

Do one of the following:
  • To insert the micro SIM card, slide it into place as shown.
  • To remove the micro SIM card, push the micro SIM card partly out by placing your index finger in the opening. Slide the micro SIM card out completely using either your index finger and thumb, or by pressing on the top of the micro SIM card with your thumb.

Tip: You can insert or remove a media card while your BlackBerry device is turned on. You don't need to turn off or restart your device.

A media card is optional. If a media card is included, it might already be inserted.

To insert the media card (microSD card), with the metal contacts facing away from you, slide the card into the slot to the right of the battery.
