SIM Cards

Learn about installing SIM cards & eSIMs.


Before Installing Your SIM Card:

  1. You've got your SIM Kit handy — this has your SIM card and SIM ejector tool
  2. Your phone's operating system is updated to the latest software

Step 1: Turn Off Your Phone & Locate the SIM Card Tray

To find the SIM card tray, look on the side or bottom edge of your phone. The SIM card tray has a small hole that’s used to pop the tray out.

Step 2: Pop Out the SIM Card Tray

Note how your SIM card tray is oriented by checking the direction of the hole. This will make your life way easier. Then, insert the provided SIM ejector tool into your phone's SIM card tray hole. Push gently until the tray ejects.

Step 3: Place Your New SIM Into the Tray

Next, find the new Boost Infinite SIM card included in the SIM Kit. The SIM card is a small chip that pops out of a larger plastic card. Pop out the SIM card from the center and place it in the tray. The SIM card tray has a small notch in one of the corners and the SIM card will only fit one way.

  • Your phone's unlocked. You may need to call your current carrier to unlock your phone.
  • You turn off your current cellular connection and make sure you're connected to Wi-Fi.
  • If you're transferring your current number to Boost Infinite, don't forget to get your account number and port or transfer PIN from your current carrier.

Step 2: Enter the eSIM compatible IMEI number of your phone.

You can find it by dialing *#06# or by going to Settings and selecting About.

Step 4: Choose if you want a new number or if you’re transferring your current number

The eSIM push for activating a new number can take a few minutes to process. Activations are usually completed in less than 30 minutes.

Step 6: Before installing the new eSIM profile, remove or delete any physical SIMs or eSIMs that you won’t be using.

This includes all SIMs from the network you’re porting from.
