Android How-To: Remove and Replace the SIM Card and SD Card on ZTE Grand X MAX+ for Cricket Wireless

January 29, 2015 - Written By Nick Sutrich

Isn’t it great when a device offers easy flexibility and gives you options when considering storage or network connectivity?  MicroSD cards have been one of those pariahs in the mobile world that everyone actually seems to want, and why wouldn’t you want it?  Easy, cheap and fast expandable and removable storage is the best way to keep all those memories you take with your device safe, and it makes it easy for when you just need an extra boost to your device’s storage.  ZTE has included a microSD card slot on the ZTE Grand X Max+ for Cricket Wireless, and has conveniently placed it right along side the SIM card tray so you don’t have to go hunting for either when you need to access one or the other.  Both of these are located on the right side of the phone above the power button and require a simple push of a pin to get them open.

Both trays are locked into place until you put a pin in the hole located on the left side of each tray.  ZTE ships the Grand X Max+ with a little SIM eject tool in the box, but you can use an unfolded paperclip if this isn’t available, just make sure it’s small enough of course.  Push the pin in, the tray should pop out and you can load the needed card into the tray.  The tray closest to the power button is for your network SIM card from your wireless carrier.  The tray closest to the top is for the microSD card, and remember you can put up to a 32GB microSD card to expand the storage space of your phone.  The cards should only fit in the trays one way, but if there’s any question make sure the metal pins of the card are facing toward the back of the phone.

Cricket Wireless currently sells the ZTE Grand X Max+ for $199 out the door, so no contracts or other gimicky pricing for the phone.  It’s a killer phone with a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB of RAM, a great 13 megapixel camera and a battery that lasts seemingly forever.  Our review of the phone should be up any day now, so stay tuned for that if you’re looking into picking one up.
