    I ordered a sim adapter off ebay and what a load of absolute rubbish. Brother used it in his iPhone and nearly got stuck. Then when I got my Micro Sim from O2 they woman gave me a micro sim adapter to go with it and that one works a treat

    I got one sent out from O2UK simply for registering an interest in the iPhone 4!

    No charge too!

    I never got my adapter from a UK seller either. I ordered one off ebay and it arrived a couple days later and works great in my 3gs.

    I ordered mine form the MicroSIM shop about a week before iPhone 4 lauch, and it was here 2 days before the phone. Had a chance to try it in the 3G last weekend for some emergency tethering need and it workd great.

    Yes.

    Orange UK microsim comes with a sim adaptor in the pack.

    You probably should have mentioned that in your post.

    I made my own out of sturdy but thin cardboard. Works great!

    Although, I wouldn't recommend this for a long-term solution as cardboard (and the tape) could degrade.

    I ordered 5 of them from the same place (microsim-shop) about 2 weeks before iPhone 4 came out. Ordered on a Thursday and had them in hand on Monday (4 days ship time), and I'm in the US as well. I thought 4 days ship time was pretty remarkable.

    Same here.
    They came in within a week or so in the US from that site.

    Actually, it’s better to use your old 3G/3GS sim, and cutout the shape of the microsim with an xacto knife. IDKY anyone would bother buying one of these adapters, since that’s all they do to make one.
