I was persuaded to update my iPhone phone to a Samsung S7

This answer was rated:

I was persuaded to update my iPhone phone to a Samsung S7 Edge, being told how wonderful they were. Unfortunately I took the advise spent two weeks wages on a phone I literally absolutely hate. It has taken three months to eventually get my iTunes switched over and my pictures are all over the place. My contacts are ok but the other apps are not there and I have had to re-download them. I just want to go back to my 5 and eventually get an iPhone S6. Can I just take the sim card out and reinput it back in my 5 or do I have to take it to a shop?

Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Both phones uses different operating systems. Galaxy phones uses Android and iPhone uses iOS.

Both are entirely different platforams and they are not very compatible with each other. That is why you had issues transferring stuffs from iPhone to Samsung. Even the Apps are designed differently and that is why you had to redownload them. People who use iPhone may not like Android and vice versa.

Re your question, Yes, you can take out the SIM from the S7 Edge and put it back to your iPhone 5.
