SIM Card Mini from Samsung phone into GO Phone

Since cracking the screen on my Samsung Galaxy SIII, I'm temporarily would like to use a go phone with my SIM card inserted until I can replace my smartphone. Unfortunetly the SIM Card that came in my Galaxy is a micro SIM and the GO Phone I bought needs the full sized SIM. 

 

What can I do to make my current plan work on my go phone?

you should be able to go into a corporate store and get a sim at no charge. Also if the gophone you purchased is not a smartphone and you have a grandfathers unlimited data plan, the plan will be removed and you will not be able to get it back

The simplest thing you can do is get a micro-sim to mini-sim adapter and use it in the Go Phone. Just be careful about putting the SIM in adapter in and taking it out.

I agree, this is probably the simplest thing to do. If you don't have a microSIM adapter, they should be for sale relatively cheap on eBay or possibly Amazon. I used one before and it worked well. Like dmapr said above, just be VERY CAREFUL inserting the adapter with the SIM in the tray along with removing it. I was not careful enough upon taking it back out and one or two of the little metal prongs that hold the SIM in place got hooked on the adapter and I thought that I almost broke the whole mechanism. Very nerve wracking to say the least!
