How successful is cutting down a SIM card to fit in my Apple iPhone 4S?

Ad

Whether or not cutting down your SIM card to fit in your Apple iPhone 4S will be successful depends completely on how well you cut the card. You need to cut your SIM card down to the exact shape of a microSIM card, which is the size that Apple chose to use in the iPhone 4S. If you have access to a microSIM card, take it and line up the gold piece of the microSIM card with the gold piece on your traditionally-sized SIM card. Make sure the two cards are facing the same way. Then, cut the bigger card down to the microSIM card size. This is a very delicate, time-consuming, and difficult process. If you mess up any side on your regular SIM card, you won't be able to use it in the iPhone 4S and you will have to go to your carrier to get a new SIM card. In fact, it's often a better choice to go to your carrier's nearest store and pick up a SIM card that is cut perfectly to fit inside your iPhone 4S. SIM cards are often given out for free by the customer service representatives in the store to existing customers, though some carriers charge a small fee for replacement cards.
