I've recently got a Nokia Lumia 800 without any mobile plan (i.e. just the phone).

I'd like to get a pay-as-you-go SIM card for it, but it needs a "micro-SIM", and the only "SIM only" plans I can find call it the "micro SIM for iPhone" - I remember that when I was updating my last phone, the store I was in implied that there were standard SIMs, micro-SIMs and iPhone-SIMs - was this my misunderstanding, and should I be fine with an "iPhone" Micro-SIM, or do I need to get something more specific?

  • You can go to one of those privately-owned highstreet shops or market stalls that sell mobile phone stuff (like covers) and ask them if they can make your SIM into a micro-SIM. They may have one of these punches - daveburrows.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/lupo.jpg That's what I did, as Orange sent me the wrong size. – paradroid Jul 1 '12 at 4:43

The micro sim used in an iPhone is a standard one. It will work. You can also turn any standard sim into a micro sim.

  • I printed out a template from here amjath.com/2010/08/… works great in Nokia, HTC and Apple phones. – row1 Jul 1 '12 at 2:59
  • You can also get an adaptor so that you can use your new micro in an older phone. I got a pair for a couple of bucks. – row1 Jul 1 '12 at 10:47
