    Coming from a z30 to passport.
    I loaded the latest leak, backup ed my z30, restored it to the passport then I realized my sim card is too big.

    OMG. Does this mean I need to buy a nano sim card and have my carrier switch it over?

    That's the best course of action. You can also cut down your SIM, if you feel adventurous.

    Well, that stinks. I bought a red Passport. I just assumed I could swap my SIM card from my Z30.

    Can't you just register your new sim online yourself? Get an NFC sim

    I don't think you should cut it. I did that. Twice. With different SIM cards. And when it was inserted into the Passport, it's very difficult to come out. Because the SIM card is a little bit thicker than it should be. I ordered from the T Mobile to finally give me the proper Nano SIM and they work perfectly. So I suggest you to do the same.

    Same here, ran around with a crippled Passport in my pocket next to my Z10 at that time.

    I was really convinced that only Apple devices adapted the Nano SIM format.

    That really was frustrating =p.

    Cut it or ask the network for a new sim, takes them a minute to switch it over and should costs no more than $5- $10 for the sim

    Also, if you cut it there are many guides online showing exactly how to do it.

    As Andy Wijaya said, it may be a bit thick, if that's the case you can sand of a bit of the top of the sim if you're up to it!

    Good luck!

    I would NOT recommend cutting down your existing SIM card, go to your provider and get a new Nano SIM. I have seen so many damaged SIM holders from SIM cards that where not properly cut.

    you need a tool to cut from a normal sim to nano sim. and it works perfectly..

    My sim card was literally cut by a machine, cost me 5 bucks instead of 25 bucks.

    It was precisely cut and I have no issues inserting and removing it.

    I have standard sim card tray adapter to a micro and works great. Highly recommended if you want to swap between different phones.

    The micro to nano should work just fine and it's cheap to buy.

    I did cut mine and sanded a bit off the plastic side. I used it for a few days while the 'official' nanoSIM from my carrier arrived, and no problems.

    My carrier did cut my SIM for free because they don't have nano sim. As said previously, you have to sand off the plastic in order to avoid your sim to be stuck inside.

    and I agree with previous poster ... do the sim swap on your own online at Rogers.com ... they mess that up at the stores so much , smile nice , flash your phone at them and you'll probably get the sim for free

    Go to Amazon and order a sim cutter for $5. It's basically what the store does anyway.

    No they don't. They issue a new one. Trust me, it will only cause problems down the line. Don't go the bandaid method.

    I used a "Noosy" cutter (from Amazon) when I went from my Z30 to the passport. It's comes with a small emery board to get rid of any rough edges. Did the job just fine.

    It takes just a few mins to swap the sim. Get one from your carrier and put it in yourself if you want. It's not hard at all.
