    So what I'm hearing is if I want to switch from my GS2 skyrocket to a Nexus 4 it's gonna be a pain in the *** and not guaranteed that AT&T will let me get a micro SIM when I have a larger SIM now. Ugh maybe it's not worth getting the Nexus. How have people done it with the past 3 Nexus phones? There has to be an easier way.

    AT+T has no reason not to give you a new sim card, presuming you're not using a subsidized phone.
    And worse case, cutting sim cards is easy, as long as you have the right pattern you can do it yourself with a utility knife.

    Well then why doesn't Google tell it's prospective buyers of this significant change? Everyone is going to change their sim cards to micro one way or another.

    It's not a significant change, it's pretty minor. And it's common in the industry, Apple basically invented a new size of sim card for the iPhone 5, at least Google is using a standard size.

    It's listed in the specs on the Play Store page where you buy the phone:

    I don't see anywhere on that Page that the phone requires a micro SIM.

    It's not a big deal. Print out a template and just cut or get another sim. I just ordered one from TMobile for 99 cents. Only did that because I sm switching plans from simplemobile to Tmobile. $30 per month.. 5gigs data, unlimited text but only 100 minutes talk. I usually text or use Skype so it works.. At any rate the micro sim should not be a game changer...

    I just got my Micro SIM from a corporate store. No charge. I have spoken to the sales rep multiple times over the years and he recommended that I call to activate the new SIM rather than do it on my.tmobile.com. Apparently there can be wait time if it is done over my.tmobile.com.

    Really? That's weird.. Would think over the phone would take longer than activating online? There's another thread where someone went all the way through the activation process on TMobile until the funding part, so I tried it too with my new SIM/Activation package. But of course never "confirmed" everything, so maybe that's where the latency might be online?? Hmmm... Interesting

    I am already on T-Mobile Postpaid. All I am doing is switching from a Mini SIM to a Micro SIM. I am sure if you were starting a new pre-paid line then doing it online would be faster.

    Didn't read this whole thread, but Apple stores give out free micro sims, I grabbed one two days ago. Hope this helps.

    (just say you bought an unlocked iPhone 4 and need a (insert carrier) micro sim)

    I cut my 4g sim down to nano when I got my iPhone 5. It was a perfect fit. Maybe it helped that I had a nano there as a template. Or you can get sim cutter from eBay and trim as needed.

    I bought my micro sims from TMobile. They charged $10 but I'd rather pay than screw up with a cutter. Plus it's good to have spares. And TMobile now let's you change your sim card online!

    At&t will give you whatever sim you want. I had them provision a micro Sim for me months ago and have been using an adapter since. I replaced my i4 sim to get one provisioned for Hspa+. No Charge.
