    Just got my Passport and the girl at Telus told me I could use my Sim from my Z10 but I can't get it in. It seems like it's way too big. Can anybody help me out?

    Z10 uses a micro sim, you need a nano sim for your passport

    He should throw in a few nano-sims for free. Nano-sims are used for the newer smartphones.

    Or you can cut your micro into nano.

    It is only possible from micro to nano. But from normal to nano is a no go because the normal is too thick. Length and width are the same but depth is different

    That's sounds adventurous and all, but I want to keep that Sim Card for times when I want to switch back to my Z10. I'll be near a Telus store tomorrow, so I guess I will survive taking calls on the Z10 for now.

    On Rogers you would need to get a "SureTap LTE Nano SIM" to enable the NFC functionality for Canadian payment systems. Sorry I don't know the TELUS equivalent. Rogers charged me $12 for the new SIM. I picked up an adapter for the nano-sim which allows me to use it on my other handsets (Z10, Q10, Z30)

    "Noosy" makes a nice set of anything-to-anything adapters for CHEAP (this is what I use)

    I don't think an NFC enabled SIM is required. Passport has NFC built in. I used my old AT&T SIM in my Passport and I use NFC at Tim Hortons (Canadian) several times a day. The SureTap Sim is for phones with no built in NFC, as I understand it.

    I am using my old AT&T SIM in my Passport. I cut it down from regular SIM to micro for my Q/Z 10 and Z30 and then cut it down again for nano in the Passport. Sanded it down a bit for the thickness you mentioned. Works like a champ!

    I live in Canada. No AT&T stores here. Company provided SIM and they won't allow BB's. So, sshhhhhhhh, don't tell.

    This is not correct.

    The nfc sim stores credit card credentials I believe, it does not actually have any nfc technology in the sim.

    If you want to use rogers suretap wallet, or any banking app with their nfc payment systems, you need their app, nfc enabled phone that is compatible with their service and a suretap sim.

    Tin Hortons card acts more like a rewards card and in guessing is not as advanced as a visa or a mastercard with the tap to pay. Also it is prepaid so there is not a lot at risk if something is compromised.

    This video from Rogers will clarify:

    Does Rogers offer a non-NFC nano SIM and a NFC nano-SIM? If that's the case, it makes no sense whatsoever as currently (at least according to the guy at Rogers I talked to) only the iPhone 6 and the Passport use the nano SIM right now (newer Androids coming out will use it). That could be incorrect information, but that's what I was told when I got my SIM for the Passport.

    I was not informed of the NFC SIM vs non-NFC SIM, so I think that nano SIMs in general from Rogers likely have it, because it wouldn't make sense to have a non-NFC SIM that is used in only the newest smartphones which came out after the need for NFC SIMs existed.

    You need a Rogers suretap nano sim if you want to make payments with NFC and your credit card.

    An NFC SIM is not required for basic NFC functions such as using a Tim's card or transferring files between phones. However, it is required for NFC payments through a bank. Telus charges $10 for either an NFC nano SIM or a regular nano sim. Therefore, in order to do NFC banking you still need an NFC sim even if your phone has NFC.

    The sim that came with my Passport doesn't say Suretap or anything NFC on it. I asked the sales guy that gave me the Sim and he said it is Suretap enabled. I didn't know if Suretap Nano Sims existed or not but I don't think I got one. Will call Rogers and get one sent to me.

    Thanks. Got that. But you completely missed the point of my post.

    NFC SIM has been required for using credit cards with NFC for over a year now. Nano SIMs are practically brand new. Why would non-NFC Nano SIMs even be made if that is the only way to use NFC on your phone in any useful manner?

    I may be wrong here but I think it's because the first phones to use Nano Sims were iPhones, and iPhones didn't support NFC. Now that Nano Sims are being more widely adopted, the need for a Nano NFC Sim has arisen.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Nano Sims were not NFC capable, or only recently became capable.

    Rogers dude that gave me my new Nano card specifically told me they're all Suretap enabled. I have my doubts, but I can't load the Suretap app anyway right now. It's not available for Passport yet. I'm going to write to them and ask about it.

    Went to three Roger's stores and a Futureshop to find a NFC nano. Hard to find. Some of the clerks didn't even know NFC versions were available.

    This.

    Also, i'm pretty sure (90%) that apple owns the patent on nano-sim, so anyone who wants to use one has to pay them a fee. Could be wrong about that though.

    Anyway, yeah, most carriers offer an NFC enabled nano-sim and a NON NFC nano-sim. Just get the NFC enabled one. There shouldn't be a difference in price. That way, if you DO ever decide to use NFC banking (from a bank, not a coffee shop) you can do it.

    And get a Nano to micro adapter, for disaster proofing, should you need to switch phones ever. I keep one in my wallet, with a micr-SD to SD card adapter for file swapping. Just because my USB to go cable doesn't fit a wallet.
