How to insert the SIM card correctly in the LTE-device?  

Switch off your device completely before inserting the Micro-SIM card. The card will not be recognised if the device is in standby mode.

The SIM card slot is located on the bottom left side of the tablet.

a) Open the flap with your fingers over the notch.

Do not use pointed and sharp tools, as for example needles. This can damage the device.

b) Slide the SIM card into the SIM card slot, the golden contacts on the SIM card face to the rear of the device. The bevelled corner points to the bottom of the device.


c) Close the flap again.
