Thank you for the detailed instructions. I’ve just purchased a refurbished S7 so it didn’t come with either instructions or the little tool. Your suggestion of using a paperclip was reassuring & helpful and I only needed to press the paperclip in firmly to get the tray to open.

I’ve have a few samsung item but may not be using them much long…trays are horrible idea…easier pulling teeth than getting the tray out sometimes…just what you want another thing to go wrong with your phone. You would think things would improve with time but most companies are going in wrong direction…shouldn’t have to buy a new phone when you want add sd card because tray is garbage…couldn’t keep it simple or durable…more things that break means more money for the company but eventually we’ll find another company…if I wanted garbage I would have saved some money and gotten a cheap brand and not wasted it…very disappointed.
My tray will not come out. I have used the tool and then a paperclip. I tried being gentle and then got tougher. Now what do I do. Is anyone answering these questions?

it worked for me
I just bought this phone and didn’t know how to release the tray. At first I tried a stick pin which didn’t work. So after seeing your video, it worked like a champ. Thank you so much for the instructions and pics. Joyce
Be gentle and it Works perfect.

This is stupid. I know how to eject and reinsert a stupid tray. Samsung is not owning up to the flaw because you have to tear out the tray if it is stuck. Then the new tray will not seat. I think a class action complaint should be logged. The sim and sd cards snap into the tray and have never moved. My new phone is useless and I have been asked to pay $225.00. for a replacement. When I get chance I Face Book this problem

I am trying to change sim cards after owning the phone for more than two years. The tray appears to be jammed shut. What can i do
I’m extremely beeped off. Having had a new dual tray ordered and paid for because of nano that had slipped and lodging itself deeply into phone after original tray which basically disintegrated in hand. Only wanted to put an SD in originally which led to me without phone for a month and now has to go back to shop as it won’t completely slot in. Getting extremely exy. ggrrrr….
Why the hell would Samsung do this to such an awesome product just as the hare was catching up to the Apple!!??!
Am extremely disappointed in my most reliable and favoured company..
Should I start begin to save and move onto the shady Apple with my many Ss devices?
Really needing an objective opinion. Please help ??

Whoever designed this should be fired! Successfully keeping the sim card and the micro sd from falling out when putting it in is a pain. Usually takes 20 minutes of reinserting one or the other until finally able to slide the tray in. The older Galaxy had 2 separate slots where nserting and removing was extremely easy. Now we have this pos. If the following Galaxys have this pathetically stupid tray, I’ll go elsewhere.
This helped me. Thanks especially for the pictures!
IMy phone didnt come with the tool. All i had on hand was a little papaer clip. With a bit of force the tray poppped open for me.
Hey all, it wasn’t ejecting for me either. But I realized I was being too gentle. You need to push it in harder even though it’s uncomfortable and you don’t want to ruin anything. Give it a little force and it should come out.

I inserted the eject pin that came with my Samsung S7 in the small hole but the tray isn’t being ejected. What should I do?
The drawer is not reacting to inserting a paperclip. Is there something else that I need to do?
I inserted the eject pin that came with my Samsung S7 Edge in the small hole but the tray isn’t being ejected. What should I do?
