Micro SIM card adapter?

Hello!

I currently using iPhone 4S, but like to try the Samsung Focus Flash. I understand I need a Micro SIM card adapter. So, I can use WP. 

Anyone know, which Micro SIM card adapter will work good with Samsung Focus Flash?

Thanks!

Any microSIM card adapter should work with the Focus Flash.  The adapters are not anything fancy.  I had some free ones that wouldn't fit into the phone.  Any of the ones that actually have a hole for the microSIM card instead of a flat tray for the microSIM card to sit on should be OK.

That's the style that I would avoid. The extra plastic makes it hard to fit into the SIM slot.

 

I have had more success with this kind: http://www.amazon.com/AFC-Trident-Micro-Adapter-iPhone/dp/B003THJQVU/ref=sr_1_2?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&q...

 

Even though it says for iPhone and iPad, it will work with any microSIM card to fit in a full-sized SIM tray.

Thanks!

 

So, all I have to do is, take my iPhone 4S micro Sim card and place it on adapter?  This will fit in the Samsung Foucs Flash w/o no issues?

Re: Micro SIMI card adapter?

Yes, you would place the microSIM card in the adapter, then slide it into the Focus Flash.  You may have to hold the microSIM card in place as you slide it.  I thought that the type of adapter that you had in your link would make this process easier, but I cracked the adapter when I tried to slide it into the phone.  The extra plastic makes it too big to fit into the slot.  That's why I recommended the adapter that I did.

 

I haven't used the Focus Flash, but I switched back and forth from the iPhone (and now other phones with microSIM cards) to other phones that used the full sized SIM card for over a year with no problems.  Using the adapters is easier for me than trying to get new SIM cards each time from an AT&T store.

This is the one you recommend, right?

Yes, that one should be fine.  I looked back through my old orders on Amazon and the three-pack that I actually bought is in the link below.  It looks the same as the one from Trident, so you should be good with either one.  The second link is for only one.

So, this three-pack? Does it contain 3 adapters or 3  microsim card cut outs?

It contains three adapter and three SIM cutout guides.  They come in little packs of an adapter and cutout in each one.  You can order only one, if that's all you need.

Those cutout guides is to make a microsim card. Which I don't need, because I already have one from iPhone 4S. Correct?

Yes, you won't need it for what you want to do.

I ordered this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003XCCYV0/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01

 

Why is there a little groove on top thou?   Will it be ok?   

 

 

This looks better, but not fast delivery.

You're welcome. I think either one is fine, but I don't know what the groove is there for. Maybe it makes it easier to slide out of the phone.
