do you think the next iphone will have microsim?
That would kind of defeat the purpose of putting the micro SIM in the iPad, wouldn't it?
I won't rule it out. It's basically the same thing with a piece of plastic cut off.
If Apple implements most or all the lack of features in it's next gen iPhone that critics picked on so much, then it's a wrap. iPhone will be the undisputed king and AT&T would love the microsim idea to prevent any lost of customers from unlocking and using on other carriers.
But then again, after looking at this ......... http://www.theiphoneblog.com/2010/01/28/ipad-microsim-3g-4th-gen-iphone/
It seems it might be easy to just cut a sim card down to micro size. But that pic might also be dead wrong.
what do you mean, i would think apple/at&t would love this idea for the iphone
since tmobile doesnt of a microsim, it would be pointless to unlock an iphone unless tmobile comes out with their own microsim
(assuming iphone doesnt hit tmobile)
I'm pretty confident that the reason the iPad uses a micro SIM is to prevent users with iPhones from using the same SIM in both devices, thereby avoiding one of the $30/mo data plans.
or it could be to keep it on att instead of t-moblie
or just that jobs likes new tech
Do we know if there's a way to remove the SIM from the iPad? Could be embedded.
Since it's unlocked, there seems to be little likelihood of an embedded SIM.
There's a microSIM card slot on the top, I think I read.
The microsim slot is at the top. appears to be very same to the iPhone, stick a paperclip in and the tray will pop out.
i think they're using micro sims just because it is something new and as it saves space - though given the size of the device, they don't really need to save space.
it is very easy to convert your existing sim to a micro sim but just cutting the plastic around it. pop to your local phone reseller and they'll probably have a cutting tool.
Precisesly. There is not reason for a microsim in a device that size. There has to be another reason.
But it is not possible to swap such a cut-down SIM back to your iPhone. I'm telling you, the only reason they use the micro SIM is to make it incompatible with the iPhone.
yes then get a 5$ adapter for your iphone
