I called a few different T-Mobile stores in NYC and they all received nano SIM cards today to use with the iPhone 5. For those like me who messed up cutting down their SIM card this is great news. :)

Guess its certain ones. My store hasn't received any yet. Even so, I'm waiting for the refarm to be completed in my area before investing in the iPhone 5. The 20+Mbps download speeds in hspa+ will be worth it.

If I could get a stable 10mbps I would switch from vzw in a heartbeat for cheaper plans

At the iPhone hacks section.
That's because the iPhone 5 shows the 4G logo when it's on 3G. lol
Only on AT&T it does that 4G scam:D
But either way he was telling people in that area that only get 2G on Tmobile on their iphones now that when the nanosims are in they will magically get 4G.
Just some more nonsense by reps that make things up as they go:D
Tmobile only has refarmed their network in a few places in the US, its still not that widespread and has nothing to do wether you use a nanosim or a cut up microsim. That's the point I was making.

Since they have the best plan that feed My needs for $30 unlimited data and text! I don't do voice a lot or if I do I just use my google voice over data.
I think in order to get that, you'll need to purchase a 4G phone from T-Mobile.

No, you don't. Just pick the plan you want at tmobile and they give it to you.

The $30 plan is prepaid.

What happens if you go over 100 minutes talk time?
Im sure they will send u a text once u about to reach the 100 minutes, and if u do they will prolly charge u per minute!

Ayways, like i said this plan is just something that suits me best! I never or rarely use my minutes monthly!

Like i said if i do make calls, i call over my google voice number. All my credit card accounts are link to tht number anyway.

So when i call from my google voice number they know directly it is me.

Ps: it is a prepaid as month to month! Not the type of prepaid where you have or need to add money in! That mean you can cancel anytime you want.

I have an unlocked iPhone 4 that I'm planning on using on T-Mobile. If this NanoSIM is available at a store near me, will I be able to purchase it and use it for the $30 Monthly 4G plan that's available through the website or will I still have to buy the regular MicroSIM through the website and eventually cut it down to nano?
