    Hello,

    I'm buying an iPhone 4 from a person, and they have a Telus Micro-Sim, but they said they'll 'erase' the SIM and give it to me.

    Is that even possible?

    Thanks.

    I think so, but a person should still never resell their SIM card or give it away when reselling their phone.

    Is there a way I can re-wipe the SIM just in case?

    It's just that I have a regular SIM, and it's kinda hard for me to go to the Telus store and get a Micro-SIM at the moment.

    Thanks.

    You can cut down your current SIM to use it in a iPhone 4. As for reusing the seller's SIM. I'm not sure if you can. I'd suggest destroying it to protect their privacy.

    If I screw up while cutting the SIM, I can always just throw it out and get a new SIM from the store right?

    Correct. Just tell them that you lost your old one.
