    To use your tablet with mobile network data, you must first insert and activate a SIM card. If no card is installed, the message “No SIM card” appears on the tablet’s lock screen. To insert or remove the SIM card, follow these steps:

     

    1. Turn your tablet off and place it on a flat surface with the screen facing up, with the camera at the top and the Power button on the right.
    2. Tilt the right side slightly and locate the SIM card tray near the bottom and the small hole in the tray door.
    3. Insert the SIM ejection tool that comes with the tablet (or a paperclip) into the hole on the tray, and push firmly but gently until the tray pops out.
