How to Insert 2 Nano Sim (Dual Sim Enabled) and Micro SD Card in Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is an amazing phone. Those who are dual sim phone owners, must be disappointed that you can either choose Extra Space; or Dual Sim with internal space.

Well, if you are willing to do a little bit of hack, you will be able to use Dual Sim and MicroSD space on Samsung Galaxy Edge S7.

Here are the RISKS if you decided to proceed with the hack;

  1. Your Nano sim will not be able to reuse again (replacement new nano sim).
  2. Your Micro SD Card may attached to the Nano Sim.. Forever
  3. Prepare to walk into your Telco and get a replacement of Nano Sim, if it failed to work.
  4. One of your Nano sim need to be your permanent line; because it’s attached to your Micro SD Card.
  5. If you didn’t do it right, you might break your S7 Edge 🙂

So, I have a primary line; which I use daily i.e Celcom Line, alternatively sometime I hop on Umobile (a lot data 3GB…), so I’ve decided to hack on my Celcom Nano sim, and Umobile will be… an on and off sim which allow me to plug into slot 1; beside if you are travel a lot, can use to plug the travel sim card into slot 1 too.

Prepare Your Tools

Here are the simple tools I am using to hack the Nano sim.

  1. Nano Sim (MUST BE Nano Sim because it’s easier to cut and remove)
  2. Lighter
  3. Scissor
  4. Double side tape OR Uhu/Elephant/Gajah Super Glue. (I used double side tape, because I love the free MicroSD card from Samsung)
  5. MicroSD Card.
  6. Read the next line

Step 1: Make Sure the Nano Sim Card Placing is Correct.

Here are 2 SIMs (Umobile and Maxis) I am using to do comparison, which one should face up/down.

Maxis Hotlink Sim Card

Umobile Sim Card

I notice that all the sim card (included Celcom, shown later), have a breaking part. that should give you an indication which one is Up or Down.

UMobile Sim Breaking off part

So now you should know which part should facing up/down using looking at the breaking part on the sim card.

Step 2: Removing the chip from Nano Sim

Heat up the Nano Sim (the plastic side ok) for 30 secs to 1 minutes, and use your finger/sharpen tools to remove the chip out from the nano sim card. It should look like this…

Nano Sim Chip Removal

By now, you are almost 50% done of the work 😉 If it’s not successful, it’s time to walk into your celco and do sim replacement 😉

Step 3: Trim Nano Sim Chip and Attach to MicroSD Card

If you want to play safe, and don’t salvage your MicroSD Card, you can use double side tape attach the nano sim and MicroSD Card together. But before that, make sure you trim the Nano Sim Chip and make it just nice (ngam ngam) fix into MicroSD Card.

Which part should I trim it? Refer to picture below.

Trim/Cut off both side of the nano sim chip

I use scissors cutting off both side, 1mm to 2mm (well I didn’t measure, just by gut feeling). We move on next, you may need to trim the nano sim chip.

Step 4: Attach Nano Sim Chip onto MicroSD Card

Now, here is the part, attach the Nano Sim Chip onto MicroSD Card. Refer to picture below for more explanation.

So, if you MicroSD chip reading if on the your ride, your Nano Sim Chip Breaking part should face up highlight in Orange color.

Beside, make sure the Nano Sim Chip is align to the corner of your MicroSD Card as highlighted in RED color.

You are about there!

Step 5: Placing the MicroSD Nano Sim onto Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Tray

So, placing the MicroSD Nano Sim onto your S7 Edge tray and get ready to activate the dual sim, I attached with Maxis sim card for testing.

Flip it over, make sure the Nano Sim Chip is align on the corner as Highlight in the Red Square. Alright, slot it into your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge!

Final Step: Configure with Dual Sim Manager

If you see picture below on your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, that mean now your S7 Edge is enabled with Dual Sim and Expanded MicroSD Card Storage! Congratulation!
