Can't you get an micro simcard for free from your Telecom provider?

Depends on your provider I guess. T-Mobile charged me £8.50 for a replacement SIM when my phone was stolen, so I don't doubt that they'd charge me again for a microSIM. I'm happy enough paying £2.35 for a SIM cutter and a couple of adapters.

Just call your provider ande they will ship one to you for free
Telia and 3 does this anyway. But if they didn´t I´d pay to have one shipped to me. Wouldn´t risk it by cutting it myself.

I think tele2 also offers that but I have to come in with it to one of their shops, they won't ship it

I can't wait for the frickin' phone to arrive..

Like he said, I visited my provider for a micro-sim and they just cutted it for me for free. No need to buy this kind of stuff (you'll probably never use again)...

Cut it myself. All good. Followed template PDF from web. Print, score and cut. Steady hand helps

You know there is a reason the SIM tray opening tool is shaped the way it is, right?
It is a template to cut your SIM down to microSIM size, that's what I used anyway - just make sure the chip is in the centre of the template.

I followed this how to and it worked perfectly for me. Only issue now with my One X is that I never get a 3G or H signal anymore, in places that I did with my Galaxy S. Shame but there you go. Thanks for the guide though, worked a treat

just be careful if you have an older sim, mine around 15 years old and a sim cutter wouldnt do the job, half the contacts would have been cut off (this may explain why i get sim card removed then the phone rebooted on the occasion on my last phone).
so i done mine manually and it was a doodle, took around 2 mins flat and away it went.
