    Default Cutting a micro sim to nano sim for T-Mobile
    Hi, I have a micro sim I want to use for my just purchased iPhone 5. I know there are numerous guides on how to do this, but my concern is that my sim has a large metal surface (larger than some other micro sim cards). So if I cut it to nano, a decent amount of metal will be cut off. Is this ok/ will it still work?

    It will work but if you feel uncomfortable doing that just go t-mobile and get a new sim card.

    I cut my full size sim with scissors leaving it slightly bigger and then I used a nail file to get it to size.

    It works great.

    T-mobile does not have nano sims in stock.

    Not until the the second half of this month. Their website says "by mid October".
