How to convert a normal microSIM Nanosim

Nano convert normal SIM SIM

First of all, to say that we still have no iPhone 5 to ensure that this works, but all of what we're talking a matter of basic math.

In this tutorial we show you how to cut and shave the microSIM to become a Nanosim. Not a 100% 1:1, but the size is very comparable to what we see in the official Nanosim. So we think that is almost certain to work properly on the iPhone 5.

We leave you a video that shows step by step how to convert the microSIM card in a card Nanosim:

Note: Before you start cutting, read and watch the full tutorial.

Obviously, the easiest way is to ask your carrier for a Nanosim true, but for some circumstances, this option may be feasible.

First, know that Nanosim measurements are taken directly from the ETSI. The specifications are:

  • Width: 12.3 mm
  • Height: 8.8 mm
  • Depth: 0.67 mm

With these measures as small need a digital meter for measurement. They are fairly inexpensive and you can find them on Amazon, among other places.

Next, the ETSI website says this about the new standard of Nanosim:

"They can be packaged and distributed in a way that is backward compatible with existing SIM card designs. The new design provides the same functionality as all existing SIM cards. "

This means that, like the SIM could cut normal to convert microSIM, can be done with the Nanosim. Let's do this.

The first thing to do is measure the width, height and depth of our current microSIM. So you get a rough idea of ​​what needs to be cut to fit specifications Nanosim.

Of course, each microSIM may be slightly different in their actions, but all should be roughly equal.

The microSIM the example had these measures:

  • Width: 14.99 mm
  • Height: 12.03 mm
  • Depth: 0.81 mm

So after doing the calculations, had to cut 2.69 mm wide, 3.28 mm high, and the hardest part, 0.14 mm deep.

To perform the surgery, I felt a pair of scissors would be sufficient for the normal width and height. The depth was a completely different story. To trim the depth I decided it was best to use sandpaper. The sandpaper is also very good for cutting a few hundredths of a millimeter one face of the SIM card.

So basically, it would be something like this. Cut a little, as with digital gauge, cut a little more, and so far, keeping in mind the width, height and depth of the current specifications Nanosim. You must be careful not entusiasmaros with this. Tomaros your time if you do not cut the chip and can ruin the SIM card.

In the end, despite not being able to test until we receive the iPhone 5, it seems that the results have been good. The final product looks very close to what is official Nanosim. On the other hand, use a Nokia phone to see that at least detect the presence of the SIM. This means that there is a high probability that the operation has gone well.

Obviously we can not be 100% sure that our Nanosim work, but the odds seem very high.

If you decide to try this, I suggest you do it with a microSIM card that does not need. Even you can do with a normal SIM card, the kind that now we look like giants, as the chip is the same.
