SIM Card size

Hi all,

I just bought a ipad2 and to my horror , it is using a micro sim which i thought its a normal bbom sim card.

Anyone has experience cutting their bbom card to micro size?

does it work?

i bought a noozy(sth like that can't remb) sim cutter and it works well!! cost me $16 when i need it urgently but if not mistaken you can find one in SLS at lower price.

i believe the telecoms are using the same thing, dont be afraid to cut your sim card! Telecoms can replace for you FREE of charge USUALLY.

Just print the pdf template, stick glue it on the reverse side of the chip(not on the chip) n cut along the lines if you don't have steady hands.

I did it freestyle n came very close to cutting onto the chip.
