iPhone 6s-convert a micro sim to a nano sim

If I cut a Micro Sim into a Nano Sim will it fit into an iPhone 6. The Nano is supposed to be a little thinner than Micro. So I am wondering whether that could be a problem?

Re: iPhone 6s-convert a micro sim to a nano sim

I had to convert a micro to a nano, they did it in my abo supplier store (even though I didn't buy the phone there) for free with a special cutting tool they have. No problems at all.

Yes its possible but the card is thinner and could become a problem.

I just took an ordinary scissor and cut mine smaller for an iPhone6, works perfectly.

Of course, I did it foe a Samsung rather than apple, so maybe iSystems are less flexible about these things.

It is also a bit of luck, micro sims can differ in thickness where it is more strict for a nano.

Re: iPhone 6s-convert a micro sim to a nano sim

I've had to do it a couple of times, for my own Samsung and that of my wife. I cut the sims myself. There are templates out there on the internet and I just used one of those. You need a good pair of scissors and when you make the initial cuts, leave a little too much over and then just gently trim the excess, so that the trimmed card fits snugly.

Re: iPhone 6s-convert a micro sim to a nano sim

Wie aus Fachhandelskreisen bekannt wurde, zeigt sich Apple als Hersteller des iPhone von der Nano-SIM im Do-it-yourself-Verfahren weniger begeistert. Der Händlerinformation zufolge erlischt die Garantie für das iPhone, wenn Apple Kenntnis davon erhält, dass der Kunde selbst zugeschnittene bzw. ausgestanzte SIM-Karten verwendet hat.
Selbst zugeschnittene Karten können Halterung zerstören

Aus Sicht des Herstellers ist diese Regelung durchaus verständlich, zumal eine nicht exakt zugeschnittene Karte die für die SIM vorgesehene Halterung im iPhone beschädigen kann. Es ist denkbar, dass anschließend auch "offizielle" Nano-SIM-Karten nicht mehr funktionieren oder dass sich die Karte in der Halterung verhakt, so dass sich der Slot nicht mehr öffnen lässt.

Sorry in German only.
With a 1000 CHF iphone one does not play with their garantie conditions

Re: iPhone 6s-convert a micro sim to a nano sim

If you want to spend 4x as much for a phone as you should then better pay up for a matching SIM.

My Xiaomi works perfectly fine with "cut" micro SIMs (Yeah, two. Dual SIM. another thing overpriced iCrap cant handle)
