there's no speculation about it and i hear a sim cutter is beginning to show up that can be used to convert existing micro and normal sim to nano sim

yes, but they will have to take permission and pay for it, its like a patent thing.

cyclops4real: yes, but they will have to take permission and pay for it, its like a patent thing.

take permission from who?

the only device using nanosim in the world today is Apple iPhone5...with the way they have been suing all the other manufacturers, i'm sure nobody will implement their crappy nanosim technology unless it becomes an industry standard and once that happens, nobody has to pay to use it. i don't see all that process going through for another 3 years.

for the unfortunate iPhone users who will want to buy the iPhone5, all you have to do is cut your current sim to the nano size if you live in a disorganized country like Nigeria and u dont need to pay anybody to do that. for those living in the western world where the iPhone is getting released first, it will come with a free nanosim that is used to replace your current sim and number when you upgrade to the iPhone5

will the normal sim work if they cut it to the nano sim size?

ayoflyn: will the normal sim work if they cut it to the nano sim size?

yep... that's what the sim cutter is meant for. right now, you can cut your normal sim into microsim size and the same will be true for the nanosim

There is nothing special about the so-called nano sim, there are other andriod phones dat uses micro sim, the only difference is just size, and that's what the cutter is meant for.
I just hate Apple for what they did to Sammy:-(

The nano-sim has since been approved as a standard by the ETSI (European Telecommunications Standard Institute). http://www.theverge.com/2012/6/1/3056638/etsi-nano-sim-format-approved. I don't think any licensing is involved, it is not a patent so anybody can use it.

See this one. What does Africa or any continent have to do with the topic. The fact remains that a telecoms standardization organization has given the nano-sim the necessary approval as an industry recognized format/standard.

It allows for more room for other components of the phone because of its reduced size.
Re: The Speculated iPhone 5 Nano SIM by stephenponti(m): 4:38pm On Sep 17, 2012
There is a device already available to do the magic of converting the micro sim to nano sim. www.yoyobase.com/iphone-5-simcard-cutter-cut-any-gsm-sim-into-nano-or-any-micro-sim-into-nano-sim.html

Nano/Micro Sim Cutter

For cutting both Nano sim size and Micro sim size

The SIM Adapter is an amazing new product for iPhone 5, which will cut the Standard SIM card and or Micro SIM card into the Nano SIM size.

The cutter is made of high-quality stainless steel, and the cutter core adopts the wire cutting technology to ensure the high precision. This pack also comes with a free sim pack below to adapt from nano to micro/nano to standard, and micro to standard.

The first Micro Sim Cutter in world,Patent No.:201020244026.8 And now,aim at the new standards Nano sim card,The 3rd generation Nano Sim Cutter is designed in China.Your normal sim card can be cut the same size as Nano sim/Micro sim with perfect accuracy.Noosy 3rd generation Cutter made of stainless steel,the core of the cutter technology to ensure that shear card high-precision,you can repeat thousands of times to use it but without any deformation.


Your standard sim card & micro sim card can be cut the same size as Micro
or Nano sim card with perfect accuracy

Standard sim to micro sim for your iphone 4S/4 or ipad

Micro sim to nano sim for your iphone 5

There is claim that the nano sim is 15% thinner than the normal sims we are all use to.

If this is the case then all you need to do is rub down the non chip side of your sim on sanding paper a few times,

15% of less than 1mm is next to nothing to rub off lol.....

If you are not happy with this do not buy.

Do not be foiled by other listings claiming to have these any earlier.....

No. Cutting the sim to size is not all it takes. The nanosim is also 18% thinner than the other sim types. You will need to sand the back to make it thinner to fit. That's a risk though, but you can't help except you get it straight from the telecoms company.
