    I would suspect that once the iPhone 5 ( or whatever they call it) has been out for a while, you will be able to get a nano sim, might even find your local retailer has them..
    Don't think you will be able to cut it down

    My carrier told me the nano sim is thinner than the micro sim and because of the micro sim's thickness, it will not fit into the iPhone 5's sim tray/slot when trimmed down in the other two dimensions. I don't know if this is true or not.
    But my carrier will swap sims for me at no charge.

    Sent from my iPhone 4S or iPad 3rd gen, whichever I happened to have in my hands at the time, using iPF.net

    Since we've established that the iPhone 5 does indeed use the "nano sim"... we'll go ahead and CLOSE this thread. Thanks!! Thomasjtsi, iPF Staff
