Low-cost MicroSIM

by Finn Espen Gundersen on July 16th, 2012

Several new phones, such as the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S3, requires a smaller SIM card. Such a MicroSIM is nothing but an ordinary sim-card with some superfluous plastic removed.

When you are there, in the shop with your new phone, you are eager to get started with it. Some stores know to take advantage of that and will charge you extra for the microsim. For just a few moments of their time, putting your old sim through a somewhat special hole-punch, they can charge as much as $30.

Luckily, there is an alternative. Just get the right tool (or use ordinary, sharp, scissors) and you can punch your own microsims in no time. Pretty handy when you want to get started with that new phone that just arrived in the mail as well.
