    I had to go to the apple store yesterday to get my phone fixed and they ended up just giving me a new phone. I popped the sim out of it and the thing is tiny tiny(nano sim?). I thought this was iphone 5 tech only?

    That's a micro sim. The nano sims are even smaller than that. They pretty much have no plastic around the chip.

    Fairly certain that is a micro-SIM. The nano-SIM is literally just the gold contacts.

    Micro

    Thats a micro not a nano the 4S and 4 used a Micro while the 5 uses a nano. Nano's have no border around the plastic that has a small border.

    Oh I see.. wow that nano is really small. I had to go the store to get old sim for my 3gs to use temporarily. I thought maybe they updated the 4s to use the nano. Cool beans.

    I'm guessing you didn't know that the SIM card was as big as a credit card back in the day!
