Everything about the devices: Samsung Galaxy S7 in the test and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge in the test for GIGA.DE.

The trick is as simple as it is ingenious: the hobbyists simply solves the chip, so the golden area of ​​the SIM card. This goes by the plastic card is heated approximately one minute. The golden chip can be removed, although of course a bit of tact is needed then relatively simple. After that, the detached side still needs to be trimmed. According to the manual must leave one to two millimeters on each side. This is probably the most difficult step - who wegschnippelt too much, after all, destroy the card. The good news: the SIM card you get is usually free or new for a small fee from its carrier.

If not, simply super glue or commercially available double-sided tape can be used.
