    Just found out that iphone 5 will only take the new nano sim card.

    I have phoned Network 3 who confirm that their 3 shops will exchange micro sim card with a nano, with same number for £5.11.

    Thank you for that. I was told by the 3 agent "we have already supplied you with a sim card so will charge you for a replacement". So I don't understand why they have informed you differently. Could it be that I am on a different contract ? I pay monthly.

    Ah, could it be that I am buying my iPhone 5 direct from Apple and not as an upgrade from 3 ?

    does seem that customer support on 3 is a bit hit and miss as thats two people who have had trouble getting a nano sim card from them via telephone,i have'nt had any problems with them so far and have been with them quite a while,hope this is just a glitch but they really should be ready for the influx of customers wanting nano sim cards.
