The Nokia 5300 Xpress Music phone uses a standard subscriber identity module (SIM) card. You store the SIM card behind the phone's battery, like in many other cell phones, so you need to insert the card before you use the phone. The Nokia 5300 does not have a standard battery cover; instead, the entire rear cover of the phone comes off. Once the cover is off, the SIM card is simple to insert.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press and hold the power button (on top of the phone) to power the phone off.

  2. 2

    Flip the phone over (screen facing down). Push in the back cover release button (next to the power button).

  3. 3

    Grasp the phone's rear cover; pull the cover away from the phone.

  4. 4

    Pull out the battery. Open the SIM card cover behind the battery. Insert the SIM card, close the cover, and then replace the battery and rear cover.

Tips and warnings

  • The angled edge of the SIM card should face the opposite side of the camera lens. The gold terminals should be pointing down.
