How to put the SIM card in the ZTE Blade V7


Not long ago we carried out  an in-depth analysis of the new flagship of the Chinese company ZTE , which is none other than the Blade V7 . It is a fairly complete mid-range smartphone for those who want a mobile with normal features, without complications, whose design gives the feeling of elegance and superior range, but without having to scratch our pockets excessively.

This time we are going to focus on the SIM card that this ZTE Blade V7 accepts and how to insert it into the terminal. The first thing we have to know is that this new terminal from the Asian company incorporates the interesting DualSim option , that is, we can insert two SIM cards at the same time and manage two terminals. This faculty will be useful for those who have a number for work and other personnel, for whom the having to carry two different phones is over.

Diving into the official booklet that comes inside the ZTE Blade V7 box , we find several warnings about the SIM card . The first and in my opinion the most important is that it only accepts standard Nano-SIM cards , which will be provided to you at your trusted store. To avoid damage to the terminal, it is important not to try to insert other types of cards, not even a non-standard Nano-SIM card trimmed by ourselves. The consequences could be fatal.


As we can see in the photos we have taken for this article, on the right side of this ZTE Blade V7 we find the slot to insert the SIM card , just above the power button. Inside the box the Chinese company has inserted a kind of elegant pin to open the slot. In the first photo you can see a hole in the upper part of the slot perfectly. By carefully inserting the pin we will feel a click and the slot will come out.

Once open, we see in the second image that it is divided into two slots, the first one can be read SIM 1 and the second SIM 2 / MicroSD . At this point it is important to clarify that ZTE allows you to increase the storage memory using a MicroSD card , if we run out of space to save photos, videos, music and other files. However, we have to choose between increasing the space or exercising the DualSIM option , that is, the second slot accepts either a SIM or a MicroSD but in no case both.

Before finishing you have to know one last thing. We have already seen that in slot 1 only Nano-SIM is supported and that in slot 2 we can choose between Nano-SIM or MicroSD. Now, although both slots, if we choose DualSIM , accept the connection to 3G and 4G networks , if we want to use one of the SIMs to connect it to those networks, the other SIM will only allow us to reach 2G networks . This means that you cannot navigate at full speed on both at the same time.
