    I have a Verizon iPad and an Android 4G phone with an old unlimited data plan.

    I like being able to swap the sim back and forth between the phone and the iPad to have wireless data on either and use the iPad as a hotspot.

    From the pictures, it looks like the new nano sim has similar contacts to the micro sim, and like the mini/micro its actually compatible and only really different in the shape of the plastic surrounding it.

    If that is indeed the case, I'd love to have a tray for the iPad that holds a nano sim and be able to swap that back and forth with the new iPhone...

    I've confirmed that transplanting the nano sim from the iPhone 5 into the iPad with a nano/micro sim adapter does work. Yay, I can continue to get unlimited LTE on either device by moving the sim back and forth.

    But the problem is that the nano/micro sim adapter is so small and fragile that I dont expect it will stand up to being handled for very many swaps before it breaks.

    It would be ideal to have a sim tray for the iPad that takes the nano sim without needing an adapter...

    This is an old thread, but I agree that a replacement tray that holds a nano-sim would be ideal. I also cannot find one of these trays. The adapter from microsim shop is great, but I would rather have a new tray made for the nano sim. It would be easier and faster to swap the sim.

    Not sure, but the may be the same as from microsim-shop.com. They are also made in Germany. They securely hold the sim in the adapter.

    Why even bother mentioning that the adapter is stable in temperatures up to 250°C. At that point the device it was in would have failed. I guess when you need some way to sell a piece a plastic then you have to pull out all of the stops.

    I am surprised that they didn't also mention that the adapter was also waterproof.
