Unlike most high-end Smartphones today, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s back cover can be removed, exposing the device’s battery and the housing for the SIM card. This means that, if you need to do so for whatever reason, you can easily remove a SIM card from a Galaxy Note 4 through its back cover. The following are all of the steps you need to follow in order to insert a SIM card into or remove a SIM card from a Samsung Galaxy Note 4:
There is a divot on the back of every Samsung Galaxy Note 4 located at the left of the rear-facing camera. This divot can be used to peel off the device’s back cover. Wedge a fingernail or thin plastic opening tool into the crevice and, once fastened, pry and peel open the device’s rear cover. Be extremely careful when going through this step as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s back cover is almost paper-thin and, while it is quite flexible, is only capable of withstanding a limited amount of bending.
Removing the back cover of the Note 4 will expose the device’s insides. In order to get to the device’s SIM card jack, you will have to go through another obstacle – the battery. The Note 4’s battery, when intact, blocks the entrance of the SIM card jack, making it impossible for you to insert or remove a SIM card without first removing the battery. Wedge a fingernail or a tiny opening tool into the crevice located in the bottom right corner of the battery compartment and lift the battery upward to remove it from the device.
When the SIM card jack is fully exposed, simply push the SIM card slightly out of the jack from the jack’s rear end and then pull it out the rest of the way from the jack’s front end.
If you wish to reassemble the Galaxy Note 4, simply follow the instructions listed above in reverse order.
