If you’re having problems with your Samsung phone or its SIM card, take it to the supplier you got it from for some advice and for repair options. If you have a new Samsung phone, make sure you are positive what type of SIM card is required before taking the card out of its plastic frame. If you inadvertently take off one layer too many, the card is no good, and you’ll have to get a new one from your supplier.
