I purchased My s21 ultra off very in the UK 

It's landed today rhe model number is SM998B/DS which I assumed was dual sim however its only got a single sim tray 

In the mobile info it's got sim one and two so the software is there 

The phone is genuine as I can register for an extended UK sim 

 

I thought all UK models were double sim? 

 

Can anyone help me do I need to reject the handset? 

I can add an e sim but double sim would be better 

Nice to be back on Samsung after some time away just more curious as to why I've only one sim 

Thanks

They go in on both sides of the tray don't they one on the top and one on the bottom?

The sim tray only has one side where I can slide in the sim the other side won't take the sim it just falls out 

 

Side one says sim one but nothing is written on the other side

Hi you could check samsung's website or purchase a cheap one, on am#zon, I put the # because I don't want to seem like I'm promoting their company.
Here's the link for a dual simcard tray.

I've ordered one just hoping it's a manufacturing fault where who ever made the phone put the wrong sim in... I hope it had a dual slot everything points to it having it from the serial number to the software showing two sims. I'm really annoyed I've complained to very

That's the model number  but if you look my sim side of the plastic sim tray has a clip to keep the sim in the other side isn't shaped for the sim to fit in 

 

Also never known samsung use plastic sim trays..
