if you buy a sim free 5 direct from apple will apple give you the appropriate nano sim for your current provider? or do you have to instead get a nano sim from your provider direct?

If anything the new iPod Touch has impressed me a ******** more than the 5.
im with you on that one! I will wait for next year when the iphone 5s comes out!

will have to keep my eye open for o2 releasing the nano sims, usually they do this before the release date.

Ow. Bloody hope not, ive got 600 saved now for pre order. If its more than that i'll have to wait until i get paid later this month which means ill miss out until they ship more. Bit annoying if the 32gb is anything more than 599. The last two were that much.

My wife is upgrading on Friday. I am looking at unlocked, but not sure how to go about getting a nano-sim and seeing how orange will move me onto a LTE plan - too early to know these things I guess.

Any news on nano sims from UK companies. I remember some talk of vodafone, but would have thought that the others would post info on ordering a nano straight after the announcement. I'm on a 12 month sim contract with 3, so need to ensure I can get hold of a nano sim.

Are those prices confirmed or are you just guessing?

my bet is 629. There is usually an increase of 100 per higher Gb version.

At the risk of sounding like a noob, what do you guys mean by 'EE' (in my mind I keep reading it as EastEnders lol)?

Also, does anyone have a confirmed price for the 32gb Model. At 529 for the 16GB, i'm not too happy (was hoping for 500 like it was for the iPhone 4 16GB).

EE - EverythingEverywhere, new network, has LTE right now
No confirmed price for the 32/64Gb but Apple Edu store says From 529 so its assumed that the 16Gb is 529.
