    I've seen these threads posted all over in the past but never clicked them because I never needed to know. Also, the search function is useless here because iPad and microsim return 2,147,483,647 results.

    use the search function next time. i searched "iphone 4 microsim in ipad" and i didnt come up with a 2,147,483,647 results you mention.

    i came up with 67 results and the thread that explained the details was only 14 threads down from the beginning of the list.

    so the search function isn't useless. your just lazy.

    1. I did use the search function, albeit, not well.
    2. You clearly don't get the 2,147,483,647 refererence. It's the maximum value for a 32-bit signed integer in computing, an extravagant hyberbole.
    3. It's "you're", not "your".

    if people spent as much time just giving a simple answer as they do telling someone off for not using the search function the forum would be a nicer place.
    I suspect though there are some who see it as their one shot at a little bit of power
