    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.

    I'll have to get the wife to put the sim in, I've got big clumpy hands.
