    When cutting the SIM, I used an existing Nano SIM as a template and cut it with scissors. I made the cuts as straight as possible. I didn't sand down or smooth the edges. Since the cut SIM is used mostly for testing not a long term use, I was comfortable with the fit in the Moto X. If I were to need it long term, I'd think it would be better to get the Nano SIM from AT&T.

    OK, so my wife received her T-Mobile Moto X yesterday, and as of last night I can answer your questions based on first hand experience. Here's what I did:

    1. Remove current Net10 AT&T SIM card from current Nexus 4.
    2. Cut Net10 SIM card from micro to nano with a cutter.
    3. Remove T-Mobile SIM card from Moto X.
    4. Insert Net10 SIM card in Moto X.
    5. Power up.
    6. Set APN to the correct settings.
    7. Enjoy LTE service.

    It really is that simple. I ran a couple speed tests and got about 17Mbps down and 5Mbps up. And I live out in the country. My wife usually doesn't care too much about the specifics of her phone, as long as it works. But last night she was pretty excited about it!

    Do I tell them I'm trying to activate a T Mobile phone? Does it matter?
    Technically you're not trying to activate a T-Mobile phone. That version of Moto X is in no way, shape, or form T-Mobile. It is completely unlocked and unbranded. It's just the version that T-Mobile uses. The only way you'd have any clue it has anything to do with T-Mobile is that it comes with a T-Mobile SIM card installed.

    Hey Steve - I actually have a sim cutter arriving today to cut mine to a nano - did you have to sand it down to fit the X?

    Alternately, yeah, I wonder of att would just give me a nano sim for my current phone?

    Have you tried going to the store and getting the right sim? im wondering what information they would need in order to convert it.

    Haven't yet - still awaiting the X's arrival.

    And yeah, getting a nano from Att might be easier than cutting up my current one. We'll see...

    You should only need to mess with the APNs to be sure you've got the right ones. But that's easy. The T-Mobile Moto X is basically just the unlocked one (no t-mobile branding at all).

    Tmobile X on att post paid already has apn correct. Should be fine by default. If you are on mvno you might have to edit.
