    I bought quite a few and some even destroyed my SIMs. I now download paper templates, use ruler, marker and scissors to cut them myself. Never had a fail.

    That's precisely why I am asking. All I see are dubious products.

    I did it with template, scissors, sandpaper, ruler, marker, and tape.

    It was very tricky. I had to finish by approximation, but it worked, phew!

    Because it is an irreplaceable grandfathered SIM. That's why I was looking for a perfect cutter.

    More reason to avoid nano SIM now.

    I'm sorry for being nosy, but why can't you just ask your carrier for a new SIM card?

    I've done it several times at an AT&T Corporate store and I've never been charged.

    Even if you have a coveted Verizon unlimited data plan, a Verizon corporate store should not have an issue with doing this. You are not renewing your contract, you are just changing the SIM card.

    I was worried about my Verizon unlimited plan, too.

    So I bought the highest rated SIM cutter on Amazon, and it rendered my card unusable, even though it looked like it cut it nicely.

    In the end, I simply used the smaller SIM that came with the phone I wanted to move to, and all was okay.
