GoPhone: switch to micro sim card


GoPhone: switch to micro sim card

I got a regular sized sim card when I got my gophone plan, but now I will be using a new phone that needs the mini sim card.

How do I switch my regular sized sim card for a mini sim card? I remember being told that I can switch to a mini sim card for free, but was not told how. Is there a way to do this without having to visit an at&t store?


Thanks a lot!

Visiting a store will make sure the SIM is working before you even get out.
You can get a Micro Sim cutter online for a few bucks and DIY.

You should stop into a local company store to get a new SIM card.


You can buy a SIM cutter and adapters online, but should be careful using the adapters as I have saw in my stores the adapters or cut SIM's getting stuck in user's devices and damaging the SIM slot.

Re: GoPhone: switch to micro sim card

send a text message to ATT customer service & tell them the prob. Tell them also no local corporate stores are available & see if they will mail one to you. They most likely will if your account is in good standing. The only caveat is , like the other one said, you may get a faulty sim. The other problem is if it is a gophone account, the corporate stores don't want to deal with you & play you off. My personal experience with 5 other stores, but try the text or email request. May very well workIf not, go to walmart or somewhere similar & for $10 - $15 buy the sim activation kit & get a nano & activate it on your account.
