    No. The iPhone 5 has a nano-sim to where the 4S has a micro-sim.

    If you're selling a phone you should always take the SIM card out (unless you're also transferring your wireless plan to the person buying the phone). If you've de-activated your SIM and transferred your account to the new SIM, then I suppose there's little risk in giving someone a deactivated SIM but it's probably good practice to keep it and/or dispose of it yourself.

    ok thanks.. so expect a SIM card with a used phone isn't the norm but when getting a new phone like 5 it will come with a new card..
