Wrong Size SIM
« on: November 26, 2012, 03:49:02 PM »
Oh great... NOT!  I just got my new N4 and it really looks sharp!  But, I go to insert the SIM card, which I got from Walmart.com for T-Mobile, and I see the card I got is the standard size and the N4 wants a micro  >:(

I've called Walmart and no refunds on 'pre-paid' SIMs.  Called T-Mobile and they are out and can't get any micro SIMs.  So now, I'm looking on line at the various options for cutting the standard size down to fit.  I'm nervous about doing it with a razor blade myself as there is no room for error....

I'm still considering all options and trying to figure out what my next slick move will be...

OK, OK, I got it! 

I Called all around and finally found a store in SLO by the name of "Univer-Cell" that said they would be happy to cut down my SIM to the micro size.  I drove the 12 miles to San Luis and 5 minutes later I had a micro SIM inserted in my phone.  He said he was glad that I called him because he sees so very many people that come in to buy a new SIM because they ruined theirs trying to cut it down to size.
BTW, this was the first N4 he had seen and he was very impressed with it.  He said he will be ordering accessories for it asap.  So I'm now on the TMo $30 @ mo. plan: 100 mins and unlimited text & data.  We'll see how it goes.
