Cutting a SIM card

Recommended Posts

If I cut my sim card into a micro sim will it still work and if I mess it up will they send me another sim as I'm on contract? Thanks for any info.

It should still work provided you cut it right. There are plenty of templates available online. If you're not sure about doing it. Pop into your networks phone shop and they will either cut it for you using the proper tool or replace your sim for the size you need free of charge. Beware though that some of the older sims have bigger chips in them and I think cutting these ones will involve cutting into the actual chip and could possibly destroy it (could not will). These chips have 8 connection points rather than 6 so are easily identifiable.

I've cut numerous ones down to size.

 

As long as you don't cut the actual chip you can't go wrong. One that I did mess up still works, it's just got a bit of sellotape to hold the chip in the right place. :D

You can pick up a sim card cutter for a couple of quid from amazon, ebay etc if you need to
