note 2 (no sim card reader)

I purchased a used note 2 from a pawn shop, tried to put a straight talk sim card into it and it has no slot to insert the card, I watched several Utube videos to find out what to do, every video shown has a slot for a sd card AND a sim card, mine doesn't have/look the same, any clues as to what to do???

Assuming that you are in the US, does your phone have a Verizon or Sprint logo ? If so, it is the CDMA version and will not support sim cards.

This is incorrect. Verizon note 2 is on LTE and thus does in fact have a sim card

Where are you located and what is the carrier of the phone? Is it a Chinese carrier?
