So you just got your brand new OnePlus 6 and you’re not quite sure how to insert your carrier’s SIM card. Here’s how to access the card slot and installing your SIM card into the handset.
How to insert a SIM card into the OnePlus 6
- Take out the card slot with the included tool
- Align your card in the tray
- Carefully reinsert the tray
First, locate the SIM card tray on the left side of the handset. It will be just above the volume rocker alongside a small hole used to eject the tray. Next, remove the SIM card removal tool found in the OnePlus 6’s box alongside the device’s paperwork. Insert the removal tool’s long end into the microSD card tray’s ejector hole and press down firmly — the tray should pop out easily. Pull that out completely.
Now, you should find two different sized slots. Your SIM card will fit into the smaller of the two while the microSD card will go into the larger slot. Make sure to align this up correctly with the metallic side pointing towards the back of the handset.
Carefully pick up the tray and slide it back into the OnePlus 6. Make sure that when you’re doing this that the printed side of each card is facing upward/towards you. After several seconds, the handset will recognize the SIM card and additional memory.
