Most of the time, you’ll be able to enjoy the services such as texting, calls and data the moment the phone turns on provided there’s enough credits. However, there are times when you need to set something up to make them work.

As to the SD card, you may have to format it so that you can save your files, apps and other data in it. Unlike other Android devices, your Galaxy S10e doesn’t have ‘adoptable storage’ so you cannot integrate or add it as an extension of the internal storage. It will remain as an external storage device.
