Why did they make the SIM carrier about 0.5mm narrower than the normal mini-SIM?
I small amount of whittling on a mini-SIM and it will actually fit in an iPhone (no carrier) and then still go back in the normal mini-SIM phone :-)
James got an iPhone 4 and a new micro SIM from 0range, but the SIM was dead. Old SIM had been deactivated. Lots of hassle - 24 hours before they can issue new SIM, then 4 working days, and crap. This is why people will buy our service. No crap!
Anyway, he got old SIM activated (much hassle), and we actually cut it to micro-SIM size and it works a treat. Job done.
