SIM card dilemma

    I have a htc evo shift that took a swim and now completely does not work. I bought a second hand htc one a9 hoping to get a usable phone. Both are for the sprint network. But the new phone says it has no SIM card. And it needs a SIM card. Where do I find the SIM card in my old evo shift so I can use it in the m9? Thanks for any help

    Older HTCs tended to have the SIM card under the battery cover, or even under the battery.

    This is a 4G phone? I ask because prior to 4G CDMA phones (and Sprint is a CDMA network) didn't have SIM cards as I understand it (certainly CDMA networks didn't use them).

    When turned on it shows 4g so I think it is. If it doesn’t have one, do you know how I would get a SIM card and where would it go in the new htc one a9?

    If you don't have a SIM, you need to get one from your carrier, Sprint. Also AFAIK you need to register the replacement phone's MEID with Sprint, so they can activate service.

    The A9 probably has a little slot in the side with a hole for a paperclip (or special tool) to pop it open. That's the normal design for a SIM tray on phones without user-replaceable batteries.
