I have made my Note 2 preorder in Expansys Pro, but now I remembered one important detail for me, can I use the Sim card from my Note 1 or do I have to order a new one because of the 4G or because of the size of the SIM card.
I read somewere that the Note 2 will have micro SIM card, but I also read that it will have a normal SIM card, that's why i'm confused.

Thanks

I sure hope for a normal size, there's enough space in the device.

microSIM guys. Regular miniSIMs are a dying breed. Most phones are moving to microSIM and even the newer nanoSIM (next iPhone.)

Durn... I'm in the same boat. Preordered from MobileCity with plans to use SIM from Note1. I guess now I need to find a cheap phone with a microsim, since ATT doesnt do well with phones qith unrecognized imeis. Bummer.

You realize they make SIM cutters, right? As long as your contact patch comes out unscathed when you cut it, it should be good to go.

Att should allow you to sim swap your note sim for a microsim. It sucks that we can't then go back and forth between phones though. I guess we can use adapters, although I recall the note doesn't play nice enough with some of them.

You can cut the sim into a micro-sim.
