    I live in Greece and Italy and I have standard SIM cards from both countries. I've read that you can cut them to fit them into an iPhone (I just bought an iPhone 6). Has anyone done this?

    I've cut a ton of SIMs with kitchen scissors, just be careful and always trim less, not more, than you think you need. The worst thing that happened was I cut one a little too small and it slid around inside the tray so I taped it in, but the contacts still worked fine.

    If your carrier is named Rogers, for example, google search Rogers nano SIM and look at how the SIM contacts compare to yours. Trim accordingly.

    Just be aware if you miss cut the SIM, it is toast. That would be no big deal here, but might be in your location.
