    at a guess. You have a badly made cutter
    one that missed the checks

    try and get a replacement?
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    Str4y said it. Newer SIM cards have a smaller chip contact area. With that said, even that one should work as the chip inside is much smaller and you can see from the first pic the three pins that are actually used.

    Yeah, it should be fine. You can always get a new one tho if that one doesn't work.

    I hear cutting into the metal a little bit should be ok. But hey if you get a new cutter that'd be good too.
