I currently have a micro-sim Tbaytel sim card...and thinking of changing my phone to one that uses a nano-sim.

I prefer not to cut my existing micro-sim but not sure if I should request a nano-sim?

Anyone call in to get a new different size sim?
Cutting a micro sim to nano size is pretty easy. I cut 3 micro cards to nano for use in an iPad/iPhone. I downloaded the template from the Internet, marked the cut lines, and used a pair of sharp wire cutters.

Nano SIMs are available. Why chance having to cut it? I have a nano, but have successfully adapted to micro and full size.

If you already have a micro already and need a nano, cutting may be the only feasible option.

True. You mentioned cutting 3 micro SIMs. I would have thought you would buy nano SIMs exclusively after having cut the first one.

I had micro sim cards because the devices with which these sim cards were originally utilized require micro cards. These original devices were subsequently replaced with nano devices. Since none of the cards had expired and getting nano replacements would have required additional time and expense, I just cut them.

So, you guys recommend getting nano SIMs and then buying adapters?

Just started using my new SIM yesterday and wow, it works so well. I am really surprised. I have reception everywhere I normally would. Thanks to everyone for helping :)

Btw when I called rogers they said there is no 30 day notice so they cancelled instantly which is great. But he also said I can't keep the number so asked me to get a prepaid plan ($10 to open) and no need to top it up for a year. Is this true? Should I keep a prepaid on my rogers number?

I thought by law the number belonged to me.

For this account, yes. It is so difficult to get a replacement SIM, you have to plan for the eventuality of either needing to do some form of SIM surgery. I like my chances with using SIM adapters to upsize better than trimming with scissors.

Which law are you referring to that entitles you ownership to a phone number? Please show us. As for keeping your Rogers number, only you can decide on what to do with it. If you want it bad enough, put it in a prepaid account.

Gotcha I confused it with porting the number. I guess I should just port it to fongo then. Having a new number is ok but I just assumed fongo will have forwarding of some kind instead of really using the number I provide for porting. That way I also don't need prepaid from rogers while keeping the number.

Also guys can I port my rogers number to fongo while only using my tbaytel SIM? AFAIK fongo doesn't care if the SIM you are using has the number fongo is using no? Am I missing something?

What do you mean? they are two different things. You use data to access fongo. Tbaytel just provides data.

fongo has nothing to do with your SIM.
