Anybody in UK spoke to 3, or any UK network about the new sim?

    I'm tempted to sell my iPhone 4s, and buy the new iPhone outright.

    However, the one piece of the puzzle I can't put into place is with 3, the network.

    I still have 12 months left on my contract, but I will need one of these new smaller sims to go into the new iPhone.

    How are 3, or other networks going to deal with this?

    Will 3 send me a new smaller sim and let me carry on my contract as normal?

    Not spoken to 3, but when I was on Vodafone and switched to a MicroSIM for the iPhone 4 they just swapped me over to a new MicroSIM with minimal fuss and I carried on as normal.

    I haven't been able to, but come Thursday, I will, assuming it has a new SIM.

    I've Tweeted 3 on a couple of occasions, but all they say is that they "don't have any info yet".

    The usual protocol is to pack a new SIM on launch or send you one by post within a day, let's see.

    I have a 4s and im on 3. They stated to me if the new phone has a nano sim and i buy a sim free iphone 5 from apple direct they will supply me with a replacement nano sim. BUT they did not say if they have a supply at the moment because the phone is not yet launched.

    We're seeing more nano SIM. This could be a PITA.
