    When I put my nano sim in my S3 the sim tray got messed up and it would no longer recognize a sim card. I want to make sure that doesn't happen with the N4. Has anyone used both phones and swapped the sim between the two without damaging the N4 or the sim tray getting stuck in the phone?

    Funny this topic is created because I made a mistake.

    I have both an iPhone 5 and Nexus 4 and I go back and forth...well, last week, I wasn't paying attention and took my sim out of my Nexus 4 (I have a adapter for the Nano sim to fit in the Nexus 4) and made the HUGE mistake of putting the adapter and sim tray back in the Nexus without the Sim Card in Sim Tray got stuck in the Nexus 4 because the Sim Card wasn't in it...ultimately, my Nexus broke and I had to call Google and order a replacement Nexus 4. :(

    So, DO NOT put the adapter in the Nexus 4 Sim Tray and put it back in the phone WITHOUT the nano SIM card in the adapter, because it will get stuck and your Nexus 4 will mess up. If you put the Sim Tray back in, make sure the adapter isn't in it as well.

    Luckily, Google gave me a free Nexus 4 replacement after I explained what happened.

    As long as you follow common sense (do not put adapter without SIM, put SIM in the position it should be, no extra pushing/force etc) you will be fine.

    I have switched SIMs back and forth between an iPhone 5 and Nexus 4 using the nano to micro SIM adapter and never had any issue.
