Can I buy a microsim?


Can I buy a microsim?

If I already have an account with AT&T, and buy an iPhone 4 on eBay etc. can I buy a microsim with my same number on it just by walking in the store?

You should be able to buy a micro sim from AT&T. All they would need to do is set up your sim to your account and then activate the phone. Best bet is to do this in the store.

I would suggest buying special adapter to use micro SIM in usual mobile phones. Look here: – they sell adapters for $4.99 with free worldwide shipping. I got mine 2 days ago - it is very good quality, and my micro SIM fit it well. Now I can use single SIM card with my iPad and with my old iPhone.

No reasons to buy!

Just google - there are many tutorials that explains how to cut your usual SIM card to micro sim size.

Personally, I used this video and special template that they provide to make my micro sim: YouTube video

I'm a girl, but managed to cut it easy with this template, so try it yourself Smiley Happy
