    Default Nano-SIM or Micro-SIM?

    According to:

    Google Nexus 5 (Unlocked)

    The Nexus 5 uses a Nano-SIM. My Lumia 920 uses a micro-SIM. How would I go about swapping my SIM card back and forth between devices if they use different sized cards? If I cut it to fit the Nexus 5, I can't swap back to the Lumia 920. If I leave it to fit the Lumia, I can't use it in the Nexus 5. There are adapters to fit a nano-SIM into a micro-SIM device? If so, do they work well?

    You need nano kit from Amazon. It comes with a tray that allows it to fit larger SIM sizes.

    There are adapters. You can buy them for a buck on ebay. They work fine.

    Your best bet is to cut it down to nano sim size for use in the N5 then use a micro-sim adapter for the 920.

    It is a micro SIM. I bought some adapters on Amazon by Toosy or something like that for a few bucks. The adapter works great with my nano SIM in my S4.

    Sent from my Moto X!

    I'm wondering which it is for sure also. It doesn't matter because I have a adapter I already use with my G2 for my Moto X sim, but it would be nice to just swap back and forth between my Moto X with ease.
