We have already given you instructions on how to insert the SIM card into the BlackBerry Q5 and for those of you that are picking up the latest BlackBerry 10 handset this is just another quick instructional article to make life a little easier when getting set up for the first time.

Because the BlackBerry Q5 doesn't have a removable battery door, inserting the memory card is done differently than previous BlackBerry smartphones. On the Q5 you need to open the plastic door on the left side of the device. Here you will find two slots - one for the SIM card and one for the microSD. Both are clearly marked and the memory card has a nice blue icon so you won't be trying to stick the card in the wrong slot.

Getting the job done is simple:

  • Have the micoSD positioned with the writing facing down and the metal facing up.
  • Firmly push the card into the slot - it will click into place.
  • Close the door/cover and you are good to go.
  • To remove the microSD card, just press in on it and it should pop out.

It may sound like we are stating the obvious but believe me - somebody out there will struggle. Hopefully many Q5 users will be new to BlackBerry so if we can help a little, we're doing our job.
