Just wondering any of you guys cut the sim by urself? Or all of you guys requested the new sim from your SP? I googled around, some of the forum were complaining N4 doesn't like the 'cut sim'. Is that true?
Damn t-mobile, charging me for the freaking expensive replacement sim.
After ordering my N4, I found out that it needs a micro SIM, rather than standard SIM being used in my old phone.
I contacted my provider, and they said it would cost 9 Euros for a new (micro) SIM card - and it would take 2 days to arrive.
In the meantime, as soon as they initiated the process to send a new SIM card, then my old card would be invalidated ... and so I would have no phone.
After some searching on the net, I found many sites showing how to cut down a regular card to make it micro sized, most showed you how to do this by using another micro SIM as a pattern, but as I didn't have a micro-sized card I searched a bit more, and I did find a nice template, which I share here: Micro SIM template
Using a ruler, Stanley knife and my wife's nail file - the job was quite simple - and the cut-down original SIM works fine, both saving me a few Euros and saving me from being without any phone.
Note I am not affiliated to the people selling micro SIM adapters (nor have I bought one)
