    OK, let me say this:

    a) I upgraded my Bberry 9780 to a Z30
    b) The 9780 uses a full-size sim; Z30 uses mini-sim
    c) I had to buy the new mini-sim
    d) T-Mobile and Best Buy both sell a mini-sim to full-size adapter piece
    e) in order to use my 9780 occasionally I had to put the mini-sim back into the 9780. The active sim was the mini-sim, , and I needed an adapter 'sleeve'

    maybe (?) that mini-sim to full-size adapter piece could serve a paste-it-together solution?

    Once it is in place, it does not move, so it may work for you

    BlackBerry Passport is using nano SIM card i.e. the smallest SIM card size. To use nano SIM card to a device requiring micro SIM card, you can use adaptor to make it fitted to micro SIM card slot. And so it goes with the regular SIM card.

    But if you are referring to the device SIM card slot i.e. where you are inserting the SIM card, I'm afraid that even you find seller selling this part, you will be needing proper tool and knowledge to remove the one fitted to your Passport and replace it without further damaging your Passport.

    It is better to send your precious Passport to BlackBerry authorised service centre and let them do the job for you - even you pay more, at least, the assurance that it will be properly fixed is there... on the other hand, it is your device and your money, so it is still up to you...

    The SIM card slot is probably welded to the device PCB. You need to unwelded it from PCB to install the new SIM card slot. Again, you must have proper tools and knowledge to do this without further damaging to your unit...

    Most (if not all) carriers now are issuing SIM card already cut into 3 sizes i.e. the normal, micro and nano sizes. You need only to 'pop-up' the SIM card to your desired size...

    I have checked it ,charge fee is 55 pounds,but since I live in Doha,Qatar then delivery fee will be high I guess.so instead of servicing there then I consider to buy nano sim card spare part,but up to now I can not find the shop that selling it.

    I went to the authorised service centre here in Qatar,but they said up to now they still do not have its nano sim slot spare,instead of giving suggestion to replace a half of phone body which cost almost 75 % price of new one.
