Question iPhone 5 uses the same sim card as iPhone 4 and 4S

AT&T store representative in Florida just told me that iPhone 5 will use the same Micro SIM card as iPhone 4 and 4S for sure. No card replacement needed. I asked him to confirm with Apple, but he was so confident. Can someone tell me for sure that iPhone 5 use Micro-SIM card? I thought iPhone 5 only uses Nano SIM card.

He was wrong, the iPhone 5 definitely uses the Nano Sim.

Umm, no.

As others have pointed out, you were given bad information.

FWIW, here is a comparison of all 3 SIM sizes:

I thought AT&T trained its employees well. If they are not sure about the specs, they should check with apple. It is possible iPhone could be released with two models; one with micro-sim and the other one with nono-sim?

This is correct. Nano (smallest size shown in pic above) is what is in the iPhone 5.
