Understanding Your SIM Card

Inside your Gabb Phone , there’s a small card with a chip called a SIM card. This card stores important info about your phone, like whose account it is. Your phone’s SIM card is what lets you connect to a network to send calls and texts. If you remove it, you won’t be able to use these features.

But even for grown-ups, building healthy phone habits can be hard!

Follow along with the rest of this tutorial to learn about some cool things like:

The difference between a nano-SIM card and a microSDXC card

Your phone has slots for two different types of cards: a nano-SIM card (a small version of the SIM card described above), and a microSDXC card. While the nano-SIM card that came with your phone is required to use many features, the microSDXC card is another card that you can buy to use. Some apps might require one, but you don’t need one to call or text.

Think of a microSDXC card as a memory card. You can use it to store extra photos, videos and music. You can’t store these types of files on your nano-SIM card.

Opening your Gabb Phone to get to the nano-SIM or microSDXC card

You can find both card slots in the back of your phone near the battery. To take out your phone’s back, place your finger in the cut-out in the corner of your phone’s cover and pull it up.

Your phone came with a nano-SIM card. Once you open your phone, you’ll see it in the space on the right. If you choose to use a microSDXC card too, you can insert it into the space on the left. If you look closely, you’ll see tiny pictures near the slots that show you the right way to put in each card.

After putting in your cards, be sure to tightly close your phone’s cover again. It should snap back into place.

Using a microSDXC card for portable storage

You can set up your microSDXC card to be used for portable storage or device storage. When you put a new microSDXC card into your phone, it will be set up for portable storage by default. This way, you can store photos, music and more on the card. You can upload these files to your computer by removing the card from your phone and putting it into a computer.

This is a great way to get new music onto your phone, or move photos from your phone to a computer if you’re running out of space in your phone’s storage.

Using a microSDXC card for device storage

If you need to, you can set up your microSDXC card for device storage instead of portable storage. In this case, it will be used to store large apps and their data. If you use your card in this way, it will be important to keep it in your phone for these apps to work. If you use this option, don’t remove the card from your phone unless you know how to do it safely..

Fixing a SIM card error

There’s a chance your Gabb Phone might give you an error that says you need to insert a SIM card – even if your nano-SIM card is already in the right place! If this happens, just take out the SIM card and battery, put them both back in, and turn your phone back on.

If you get another type of SIM card error, make sure your card is put in the right way (check the picture by the slot). You could also check your SIM card for dirt and if necessary, gently wipe your card with a soft towel or shirt.

If you can’t fix the error with any of these, have a grown-up help you contact Gabb.

Gabb Safety Tip: Never touch the metal conductors on your nano-SIM or microSDXC card. This could damage the cards
