    Does anyone have experience using a nano-Sim with a micro-sim adapter on the Moto G. I heard that the adapters could damage the SIM reader prongs. This is the only thing stopping be from returning my BLU phone and getting a Moto G. I want to be able to switch easily between iPhone 6 and Moto G.

    I wouldn't recommend them as I did indeed damage pins in my S4 using one.

    I am not sure about your carrier, but mine here (Vodafone) allow users to simply activate a new sim over the phone using their automatic customer help service.

    I simply dial up, go to the activate new sim selection, enter the SIM card number of the sim I want to use and then it tells me it has done that. I end call, power up the device with that sim and hey presto now all my calls / cellular goes to that sim and my old one goes inactive.

    To return back to the inactive one I do the same process,

    It takes less time to do on the phone with the automated service than actually swapping out sims and messing with adapters.

    Check your carriers automated customer support to see if they offer something similar. If they do, simply keep a blank sim in both phones and activate the one in whichever device you wish to use that day..

    Why haven't more android devices migrated to the nano?

    ****... that was 2012 that it came out.

    Yeah, I agree! Nano is the smallest...I'm not sure why most Android devices aren't switching to this. On a good note, the Nexus series became Nano this year. But, that's probably because it was based off the Moto X.

    I used a R-SIM cause everyone raved about it. They are super cheap on Amazon and hold the SIM really snug so it won't come loose in your phone.


    Remember never put an empty SIM adapter in your phone, sure fire way of screwing up the PINs.

    I no longer buy phones without Nano sim. The 520 was the last Micro sim phone I bought.

    Yes, the sadapter is definitely the best on the market. I have the nano to standard sadapter for use with older iPhones and it works fantastically. My only concern was that I've heard adapters were just a tad thicker than an actual sim, and the slot won't be able to eject it properly. I may end up just picking up a microsim at AT&T and calling in to transfer the service between sims when I need to.
