Micro Sim Card

July 5th, 2012

What is a micro SIM?

New mobile phones and smartphones such as iPhone 4S uses a micro sim, just like iPhone 4. The micro sim is built into the standard sim where the standard sim snaps out and can be used in any phone, except iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

When you get your micro sim just gently snap the micro sim out of the standard sim then put the micro sim into your mobile phone.

Where is the SIM card inserted?

Your mobile phone requires a micro SIM card. Micro SIM cards are roughly 50% smaller than regular SIM cards, and can only fit into slots designed specifically for micro SIM cards. Micro SIM cards have the same capacity as regular SIM cards.

You can contact your mobile network operator to get a SIM card of the right size.
