    I'm giving my 4 to my mom when i get my 4s but she's got an older sim card. i read somewhere a while ago that you can cut a sim to make it fit into a 4. anyone ever do this? easy? safe? thanks

    Or go to your carrier store and just ask for a micro sim, they are free and usually your in and out in less than 5 mins.

    I went there 2 weeks ago, just ask politely for a new micro-sim and they should just hand one over.

    Atleast that's what they did for me.

    You will appreciate having a SIM cutter. It's kind of like having a wine bottle without a cork opener when you don't.

    I cut mine. I've had it like that since the iPhone 4 was released and I came from the 3GS. It's easy. Just google micro sim template. Get an exacto knife and a ruler and score the lines a couple times before going all the way through. It'll take you just a couple mins. Pop it in the iPhone 4 and your mom will be happy. Just watch out for the big gold micro chip. It's easy man. No need to spend money on a sim cutter that you'll use once.

    AT&T corporate stores offer them for free

    authorized retailers might make you pay.

    If they make you pay its $25 but if you call AT&T you'll get it credited to your account.

    That's if you lose/break your old one. If you need to get a microSIM, they should do it for free. Especially if you're willing to give them your old SIM.
