Inserting your SIM & memory cards

Your Galaxy Trend 2 Lite uses a MicroSIM, and you can increase the storage by using a MicroSD card. Both of these go into the back of the phone, and you'll need to take the back cover off first.

At the bottom of the phone is the charging port - use your thumbnail in this to prise the cover away from the phone.

2.

With the back cover off, slide the MicroSIM into the metal slot in the top-left of the battery compartment. Put it in with the metal contacts facing down, and the cut-off corner facing out.

3.

If you're adding a MicroSD card, slide this into the slot next to the camera, again, with the metal contacts facing down.

4.

Put the back cover on, and press around the edges to fix it in place.

Once it's all in, press and hold the power button on the right-hand side for a few seconds, until the phone starts to turn on, and you can start setting it up.
