Hi,

The ulefone Metal is promoted as supporting both MicroSD and SIM cards. However, nowhere does it state that a standard SIM card is not supported.

My standard North American SIM card is too large to fit in the phone. So is a standard MicroSD.

Please advise.

Thank you.

See the thread http://forum.ulefone.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=262&extra=page%3D1&mobile=2

Thanks. I'll order a nano SIM and see if I can fit the MicroSD card in more easily as per the thread you posted.

Hi,
get my Ulefone Metal today but not able to plug in SIM-Card in right order. i have a Nano SIMcard and a  micro SD card. The only constellation is to put the Nano-Sim in Slot2 and the Micro SD in Slot1. Is it right?

Whre can i found a printable manual for the handy?

Sorry for asking again!
I have a Nano-Sim and a Micro SD card! Put it into the tray considering the photo from the link! So there is no way to put the Sim-Card in the tray to work as SIM1, when i use a Micro SD card also???

is it a "no go" to ask for a manual? Is this the philosophy at ULEFONE?

Why do you want it to work as SIM1? As far as i know, SIM1 or SIM2 are just names.
Someone correct me if i'm wrong, but both slots have the same specs.
If you have two SIM cards, you can use any of them as 4G, although you can only use one at a time as 4G. The other will operate as GSM.

About the manual, i believe it's becoming a common practice for most mobile phones manufacturers not to provide one.
To be honest, i agree with @zgzf. I think a manual for a smartphone without any special features and with stock android is pretty useless, and nobody would read it
As far as i know, not even laptops came with a manual nowadays.

Unfortunately, info as elsewhere is misleading.

The truth is, as seen on the pictures in the otter thread on this Forum:
http://forum.ulefone.com/thread-262-1-1.html
tray can fit:
a) Micro SIM + Nano SIM
or
b) Micro SD + Nano SIM
and no other combinations are possible.

On the official Ulefone Metal Specifications: http://ulefone.com/products/metal/spec.html
it says also "Dual SIM dual standby, Micro SIM and Nano SIM" but it doesn't describe the combination with SD card.

To make things worse, Ulefone Forum moderator @Caroline has posted FAQ thread (it's locked, cannot be responded to)
http://forum.ulefone.com/thread-133-1-1.html
saying imprecisely "1Sim card + 1SD card or 2 Sim cards"
and putting completely wrong picture of the tray (not corresponding to the Metal) "Catch01CB(08-30-(08-31-11-44-39).jpg",
wrongly fitting e.g. micro SD + micro SIM (instead of Micro SD + Nano SIM).

Web sellers also provide wrong or misleading info, e.g. Banggood:
http://www.banggood.com/Ulefone-Metal-5-Inch-3GB-RAM-16GB-ROM-MT6753-Fingerprint-Scanner-Octa-Core-Smartphone-p-1069498.html
declaring "Dual SIM dual standby, or 1 Micro SIM Card and 1 TF Card", which is not true (should be, Nano SIM + TF Card)

Hi There,
I'm a newbie with an Ulefone Metal

I found this instruction Manual for Android 6, which seems to cover most items on the phone. See if this helps.
