Steps

  1. 1
    To start with, we've got a modern SIM card shown in the picture.
    This SIM card will separate into three pieces. It's suitable for any type of phone that takes a SIM card. This is a basic size of the SIM card.

    Flip the SIM card over on it's back.
    You will note that it has a gold back where the SIM will be. Around this there is the main large format SIM card.

    Next, we have our micro SIM.
    It has come neatly out of the center piece.

    Then, we will have to take our nano SIM.
    This is this small, white piece.

    Next to it we can set our tiny white nano SIM card.
    So now on the right side we have the nano SIM card, in the middle we have the micro SIM card and on the left side we have the standard SIM. When you purchase a modern SIM card or a SIM card adapter, you will either receive these pieces all as one, or the micro SIM card.

    My recommendation is to take the pieces that you won't be using and put them together.
    Then, put a little piece of tape on them and put them away.
