Insert the SIM card

Nokia Lumia 820: Get started

Read on to learn how to insert your SIM card into your phone.

Important: Your device uses a micro-SIM card, also known as a mini-UICC SIM card. Use of incompatible SIM cards, or use of SIM card adapters, may damage the card or the device, and may corrupt data stored on the card.

Note: Switch the device off and disconnect the charger and any other device before removing any covers. Avoid touching electronic components while changing any covers. Always store and use the device with any covers attached.

Make sure the phone is switched off.

  1. With the back of the phone facing you, place your thumb on the back of the phone next to the camera lens.
  2. At the top left corner, put your fingernail in the seam between the screen frame and the back cover. Bend the cover until a side seam opens slightly.
  3. Repeat on the other corner, and remove the cover. With the back of the
phone facing you, place your thumb next to the camera lens. Then pull
with your fingernail first on the top left and then on the top right
corner.
  4. If the battery is in, lift it out. When removing the battery,
lift the side of the battery that is closer to the top edge of the
phone.
  5. Push the SIM into the card slot until it locks into place. Make sure the contact area is face down. With the back of the phone facing you, from
top to bottom, the card slot is the first one on the right edge of
the battery compartment. When inserting the card, make sure the missing
corner is closer to the top right corner of the phone.
  6. Line up the battery contacts, and replace the battery. The battery contacts
are at the bottom right of the battery and the battery compartment.
  7. Press the bottom edge of the back cover against the bottom edge of the phone. First replace the
bottom edge of the cover, then the top edge.
  8. Press the back of the cover until it snaps into place.
