I thought the nano sim was a lot thinner than the current sims but they only mention sanding the edges to round them off. :confused:

EDIT - according to wiki the current sims have a thickness of 0.76mm while the new nano one is 0.67mm.

Well thats easy!

I would suggest getting a bunch of prepaid SIM's then practice cutting these. It sounds easy, but it is not. You will take a couple of tries to get it right. And you will make mistakes.

When you got it right, then you can do your contract SIM (if that's what you want).

Easy to sand if needed, I had some spare sims and decided to try the maddest way possible, and sanded a sim with an electric sander, got down to around 0.55 or 0.56 (the calliper is not that accurate at such small sizes) and the sim (even though I had sanded a hole into the back of the chip die) still works.

Sanding down to 0.67 should be easy to do even blindfolded.

My iPhone 5 just arrived and I want to get it going but it needs sim to proceed.
When I bought my ipad 3 i cut the sim down to fit, can I do the same with my current large sim, cut it down to nano size?

Is there no way to even get into iPhone home screen without sim?

Yes, just download the template and cut accordingly. I have succesfully done it about 2 weeks ago.

OK, cut the sim and fitted it, start up phone, enter sim password, connect to wireless, shows wifi and cell cars at top, doesnt mention MTN, try to activate but cant?

Does MTN need to do anything their side?

Anywhere in Randburg I can get a micro-sim cut/resized to nano-sim?

You just cut it with a Scissors? I've been cutting it for a while now and know exactly how to cut it. It doesn't have to be perfect it just needs to fit in that nano sim slot.
