Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

A SIM card is a small thin and rather delicate little slip of a cardlet with a few silver terminal contacts on it. It is supposed to be fit into a small slot inside your phone, in order to give it information and authorization to proceed with phone calls (and some other operations of that sort.)

SIM cards are common to many phones.

Ask your service provider for one, or your local phone shop, etc.
