    Default iPhone 4 micro-sim
    Hey guys. Well basically I'm waiting on my micro-sim arriving from my carrier (Orange UK). It's almost a week overdue, I've called them twice and they said they would send another because that one may have got lost in the post etc.

    Well basically, I want to know if any of you guys have cut your original big sim card down to fit an iPhone 4? Did it work? I tried it yesterday with a very old sim and the gold connecter was much larger, so it didn't work but it was cut perfectly. I realised the sim I have now is newer than the really old one, and the gold connecter is exactly the same size as the one on the micro-sim.

    Do you guys think I should cut it? If I get it wrong and wreck it, I'll be left without being able to use any sim until Orange sort themselves out and get me my new one lol. But I'm getting impatient, I can't wait much longer!

    EDIT: I decided to give it a shot, sorry if this post is irrelevant now!

    Left: The one I cut and it works It's a little choppy I know, but I'm happy it works!
    Middle: The original micro-sim.
    Right: My first failed attempt. See how much bigger the gold bit is?

    i cut mine. its easy with a sharp pair of scissors.just be sure to cut it larger than u need then you can always file it down to fit. if u cut too small you cant add material

    now go pick up a micro sim adapter so you can still use the she sim in a regular phone. or if you're cheap like me, cut a hole in an old sim then tape the microsim back into adapter

    I prob won't need to use this sim card in any other phones. I plan to keep this iPhone 4 for at least a year lol. Also once I /finally/ get the new micro-sim from Orange, I'm going to use it and throw this home made one away. This just has to do me until the new one arrives, I just got impatient :P
