    I am gonna purchase a straighttalk sim for my iPhone 5, but they dont have nano sim for sell right now so I guess I will have to buy a micro or standard sim then convert it into a nano sim. As I know the nanos are a bit thinner than the standard and micro.
    I should purchase a standard sim or a micro sim to cut down with a cutter?
    Anyone here tired to convert? Is the thickness of the standard/micro sim gonna work with the iPhone 5 sim tray?
    :confused:

    I've cut down 2 sims successfully and both times I had to sandpaper it down a bit to avoid forcing the sim into the slot

    Try it and see. It's not like sand paper is expensive if it doesn't fit. Some have been able to do it without sanding. There is a Noosy mini to micro - micro to nano combo cutter on Amazon includes the tweezers to handle the SIM and a piece of sand paper.

    Well, I just used scissors to cut my normal sim into micro sim for my 4S and again trimmed it down to nano for my 5,no problems whatsoever.
