    On dual sim phones the sd card slot usually doubles up as either the 2nd sim slot or the sd card slot.

    I have a couple of Chinese phones, look carefully around the sim slot. mine have pictures of sim fitting.
    Alternatively try downloading an instruction manual.
    Ignore me if you like, it's not the real me anyway.

    If it's one of these fidget spinner phones, watch this video from 2 mins on, to see how to insert the two SIMs and an SD card.

    Dual sim phones are popular in China and Russia where traditionally people who travel between different places within the country would tend to have a phone for each area, because the national networks actually implement a form of 'internal roaming' when outside the region that the phone is registered, meaning calls and data cost more and PAYG phones can't be topped up.
