    Default Z10 SIM Card

    I'm curious what size SIM the Z10 will take because my 9900 is obviously the standard SIM but the leaked photo looks like a micro SIM. I did a quick search but nothing jumped out...

    Can I cut my SIM down to size without damaging it or should I fork out the 10 bucks for a new SIM from Rogers? Either way, I would just invest in an adapter should I ever want to switch back to my 9900... Thanks!

    It looks like a standard mini-SIM slot.

    It's micro-SIM. Your carrier should swap it over for you when you get a new device.

    Thanks guys, and yeah maybe I won't have to pay for a new SIM. I assumed I would but if I give them my old one back I guess that makes sense!

    Your provider should provide a replacement micro-sim free of charge. However, while you're waiting, or if you can't wait, cutting a normal sized sim down to micro-sim size isn't difficult. Download a micro-sim template from the web, grab a pair of scissors and ready your steady hands and you'll be sorted. I have done this twice so-far without any issues.
    BB's so-far.... 8300, 8330, 8707v, 8900, 9000, 9105, 9300, 9700, 9780, 9800, 9860, 9900, 9860, 32gb Playbook, Ipad2, another BNIB 9700., and now back to my all-time favourite - the 9105! Whooaa. Scrap that. I have just took the plunge and bought a shiny new white Z10. Bad move. Moved to iPhone 5s. Hey - scrap that also!! I'm back with BB with my shiny new Z30!!

    I like to throw tin cans at people, twice if they support E*e*er City.

    Changing SIM Cards doesn't change your telephone number.

    Your number will be retained I think. They will just upgrade your sim to micro sim

    More like a hole punch than a stapler, but they are a much better option than cutting one with scissors i would say.

    Might as well get a new SIM instead of cutting (unless you already have an LTE sim).

    At least with Canadian carriers, your going to need a LTE sim to use LTE. If you just cut a non LTE sim, you won't get access to LTE.

    Don't use the adapter in your 9900. I and many others here have damaged the SIM tray trying to use an adapter and the tray is expensive to replace. Just line up the micro SIM and it will work. You can even use a piece of tape over it to secure it.

    The hole punch device works fine. Got one on amazon for $5, used it to cut down my moms sim to put in an iPhone without having AT&T add a data plan.
    all smartphones are tools.
    android = 48pc tool set (you"ll eventually find the tool you need, but some assembly required)
    iphone = swiss army knife (most of the tools you need in a small, simple to use package)
    blackberry = adjustable wrench (sometimes all you need is a wrench)
    windows phone = bionic wrench (its different....but it works)

    Default Micro SIM card

    I know this was posted a while ago but here is what I did:

    I bought a SIM card cutting tool from EBay ( $5 including shipping ).It looks like a stapler.Then I Inserted my regular SIM card in the front opening of the "stapler" and pressed on it. The newly cut micro SIM card falls out thru the bottom of the tool and its ready to be used.
    If you are concerned about swapping the SIM card between phones that use regular and micro, there are also SIM card adapters. But what I did after I cut my SIM card down to micro, I saved what was left after the cut. So you can take your micro SIM card, gently press it back into its own frame until both sides are flush and now you can insert it back into your phone that uses the regular size SIM card.

    Hope this helps
