SIM card to micro SIM card

Hello,

I was not sure where to ask/post but I thought that this might be the right place. 

So i recently ordered a new phone (LG G3) off of Amazon (I also renewed my contract with at&t through them which helped me get a discount on the phone).  After I ordered it, I realized that it takes a micro SIM card and I only have the (older) larger SIM card.  

Will my new phone come with a new micro SIM card or will I have to get ahold of a micro SIM card myself?  If so how would I go about doing so? 

Thank you so much for your time!

Re: SIM card to micro SIM card

Your phone will come with a new SIM. You will need to activate the SIM once you receive the phone for the phone to function.

If by any chance, it doesn't come with a SIM, you can contact any AT&T corporate store and they will give you one and activate it for you.

Re: SIM card to micro SIM card

Some stores charge you to get a sim card! 

Att need to straight out a uniform policy to its branches. It is very confuse to us.

ATT company stores do not charge for sim cards.  3rd party retailers do charge.

Re: SIM card to micro SIM card

I think you mean you now have a micro size and the new phone is a nano size? Micro is the actually the larger sim size. May be both old and new are micro size?
