How to Use a SIM Card on an HP Mini


An HP Mini is a small netbook computer that runs Windows. A netbook is a version of a laptop, only there is no optical drive (CD/DVD), allowing the device to be smaller than a standard laptop. The HP Mini does have several USB connections, allowing you to hook up outside equipment, including a SIM card reader. Using a SIM card reader allows you to upload information saved on your cell phone's SIM card.

Things You'll Need

  • SIM card reader
  • Plug the SIM card reader into a USB port on the HP Mini netbook. There is a USB port on each side of the netbook, and it does not matter which connection you choose.

  • Slide the SIM card into the SIM card reader.

  • Click the "Start" button in the lower, left corner of the desktop, then choose "Computer."

  • Double-click the removable device icon to load a window with all the SIM information. From here you are able to copy the data to your HP Mini, or upload information to the SIM card.
