How to Insert a SIM Card into an Alcatel OneTouch 10.16D Dual Sim Cell Phone – Tutorial

Which SIM Card do I need for my Alcatel OneTouch 10.16D Dual Sim Cell Phone?

Make sure you use the correct size SIM card. Depending on the model of phone, there are three sizes of SIM card that can potentially be used in a phone: Standard SIM, Micro SIM and Nano SIM. The three SIM card types work in exactly the same way from a technical perspective. They just differ in the amount of plastic housing that surrounds the metallic chip. The Combi SIM is a Micro SIM card within a Standard SIM-sized unit, so if you need the smaller size of card you simply break the additional plastic away from around the Micro SIM card. This type of card allows networks to cater for more phone users with a single card. A Trio SIM is a Standard, a Micro and a Nano in one. Most of the pay-as-you-go SIM cards you buy from convenience stores operate under this format as they’re more useful to more users.

The Alcatel OneTouch 10.16D only accepts 2 big standard SIM size cards. You can also use a combi SIM or trio SIM and NOT break away the plastic from around the SIM card. Only remove the Standard SIM from the plastic card.

Sometimes getting a replacement SIM from your mobile network provider could be a hassle. If you already have a smaller SIM or if you find yourself switching phones around a lot, you may need to adapt — with a SIM adapter — any time you need to go bigger. They are used to transform your sim card into a bigger size which is compatible with your phone. These adapters are quite cheap to purchase, however, getting a good quality adapter would mean that it would be able to let you fit your sim tightly. Using one of those thin flimsy plastic SIM adapters (they usually have a hole in the back) or use one that uses tape to hold the SIM in is NOT recommended. Don’t place an empty SIM adapter in your phone, you must use it with the SIM card already inserted. An empty adapter might damage your phone!

Popular SIM card adapters cards include, but are not limited to:

Be careful not to damage your fingernails when you remove the back cover. Also, be certain not to bend or twist the back cover excessively. Doing so may damage the cover.

3. Remove the battery. Using your nail or finger, lift up the battery via the small notch at the top of the battery compartment and lift the battery out of the phone.

4. Place the first SIM 1 card with the gold contacts facing downwards and slide it into the left housing, marked with SIM 1 with the SIM card’s missing corner on the upper-left.

To remove a SIM card, press it downward a little and slight it out in an upward direction.

6. Reinstall the battery. Turn the battery if necessary. The Alcatel logo and the white arrows should be on top. Align the the plus and minus signs and three contacts with the three prongs on the bottom-right side of the battery slot. The large white arrow should be on top, as shown in the picture below. Slide the battery into the battery housing cavity and press down gently to secure it in place. It should fit easily and exactly.

7. Replace the back cover. The Alcatel OneTouch logo on the back should be on top. Gently press the cover down and around the sides of the phone until it clicks into place.

8. Press and hold the Power button. Doing so will turn your phone back on and the device will automatically search for a network.

How to Insert, Remove or Replace a Memory Card in your ALCATEL ONETOUCH PIXI 3(4) (4013D) – Tutorial

ALCATEL OneTouch Pixi 3 Global Unlocked 3G Smartphone, 4.5 Display, 5MP Camera (GSM - US Warranty)

Which Memory Card do I need for my ALCATEL ONETOUCH PIXI 3(4) Smartphone?

Make sure you purchase the right Memory Card for your smartphone. The base model of the OneTouch Pixi 3 4.0 has 4 GB of internal storage, which makes it a poor choice for storing multimedia. Users who demand more memory from their smartphone can install an external microSD or microSDHC (High-Capacity) memory card with a maximum capacity of 32 GB. Many micro SD Cards come with an SD Card adapter for compatibility with SD-enabled devices, such as cameras, camcorders and (notebook) computers. Memory cards usually come pre-formatted and do not need to be formatted out of the box.

We recommend storing multimedia files (such as music, videos and pictures) on an external memory card in your device to free up your device’s internal memory for applications. Plus, if you buy a new smartphone, you can simply put your external memory card in your new phone and all your data is back immediately.

The SD Association defines standard speed classes indicating minimum performance to record video. The class indicates the minimum writing speed: Class 2 = 2 MB/s, Class 4 = 4 MB/s, Class 6 = 6 MB/s, Class 10 = 10 MB/s.

SDHC cards are usually shipped preformatted with the FAT file system. Android devices normally only support the FAT file structure. If you insert a card formatted with a different file structure, your device might ask you to reformat the memory card. Formatting your memory card on a PC may cause incompatibilities with your device. Format the memory card only on the device. Go to Settings > Storage > Scroll down > Format SD card > Format SD card > Delete all.

Popular memory cards for this smartphone include, but are not limited to: Kingston Digital 16 GB Class 4 microSDHC Flash Card with SD Adapter and SanDisk 32GB Class 4 Micro SDHC Memory Card With Adapter.
