Samsung had launched the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with a hybrid slot enabling dual SIM capability. Alternately, users can have one SIM and one microSD card inside it. So what about those who want to use it in dual SIM mode, but are still hungry for more memory space at the same time? There’s a hack for that already. It will enable owners to fit two SIM cards as well as a microSD card into the device.
Cool no? Well, it would be if there wasn’t the slight possibility of ruining your shiny new Samsung Galaxy S7 while attempting the DIY mod. You will need two nano SIM cards, a lighter, double-sided tape or super glue, a pair of sharp scissors, and a microSD card of course. Maybe prepare yourself to be told that you’ve rendered the phone’s warranty null and void too, in case you need to get it repaired.
A consistent A+ in art and crafts starting from kindergarten to your last year of education would also be good, though not compulsory. Because you will require really steady hands to follow each step of this Galaxy S7 hack. It would make sense to attach your permanent SIM to the microSD card (as explained in No Replied’s guide) and slide your extra SIM into the dedicated slot.
The SIM you will be experimenting with has to be trimmed down. Then its plastic side must be heated carefully so as not to damage the chip you need to extract from the nano SIM card. The last two steps involve fusing the chip to the microSD card with tape or glue before sliding your ‘project’ into the hybrid card slot and configuring the same via the Samsung Galaxy S7’s dual SIM manager.
Please don’t start on the mod before considering the risks first. And do check out all the little details and photos included in No Replied’s list of guidelines, before you begin.
