    Inserting microSD Card in silver Samsung S8

    I recently got a Samsung S8 and I want to put in a microSD card in it.

    I got the silver Samsung S8 so the cover on the slot on the S8 is not rubber or plastic but metal.

    I noticed a hole on the cover so I got a pin and I try to remove it but I was unsuccessful. I don't want to end up damaging it so I stop.

    How do you remove the cover so you can put a microSD card in it?

    push the pin into the hole until the tray pops out a little then you should
    be able to grab the tray and pull it out. both your sim card and the sd card use the same tray.

    You can use either a SIM popper tool or the end of a small paperclip. I recommend Googling around and see if you can find a YouTube video. You can also probably find an instruction manual on Samsung's Web site that has pictures.

    Once you see it done once it will make sense.

    If you don't trust yourself, take the phone to a Sprint store and ask them to do it.

    It comes with a sim ejector pin.

    At least my S8+ did.

    But you can use something else as noted.

    Some tools like push pins won't work in some phones, and using a paper clip takes a lot of force since you don't have a large surface to push against. I'd recommend getting a SIM removal tool (one came in the S8 box), they are much easier to use and you can get a pack of them for a couple bucks.
