Buying a Simple Mobile Nano Sim Card for iPhone 5

With the launch of the iPhone 5, many Simple Mobile customers have been wondering if their current sim card will work for their iPhone 5. Previously when iPhone 4 and 4s launched, Simple Mobile notified consumers several weeks prior to the release that they would indeed release a micro sim for micro sim card users. Apparently this time around with the launch of iPhone 5, Simple Mobile has not released a Nano sim or made any comment in reference to doing so.

The short answer is that there is no OFFICIAL nano sim for iPhone 5 available through Simple Mobile or it’s dealer locations.

The alternative is those who still wish to use Simple Mobile with the iPhone 5 do have some options to make this work.

  1. iPhone Zen released this PDF file on how to convert your existing standard sim card or micro sim card to a nano sim card using a razor. Their instruction in this document is pretty good. Just make sure you have somewhere you can get a replacement sim card in case the project goes bad. 
  2. eBay – The auction site has many sellers who have already pre-cut and tested the functionality of the nano-sim card. Just make sure to buy from someone with a lot of sales on the specific listing you’re looking at.

Many other websites offer the nano sim but I’ve never used them before. At $2-$5/each, heading over to eBay is probably the cheapest and easiest way get Simple Mobile on your iPhone 5.

iPhone 5 Review

I decided to write an iPhone 5 smartphone review since I recently got one for myself. The touch screen is amazing compared to any other smart device I have used. My fingers are a little calloused from years of playing guitar yet the touch screen still responds fluently. The screen is very easy to see even in direct sunlight which I have had problems with in the past.

In my iPhone 5 smartphone review I feel that I should also cover apps. I mostly use gaming apps as well as some budgeting apps. Games look iphone5fantastic on this screen and the responsiveness makes them very fun to play. I personally love the thinness of the iPhone because it fits very easily into my back pocket.

Overall I would say the iPhone 5 is a definite improvement over the previous iPhone. If you have been using an Android the new iPhone will remind you a lot of something like a Samsung Galaxy Note in style. The iPhone 5 supports higher resolutions which makes typing a lot easier and allows you to have up to 5 rows of icons on the home screen.

The one gripe I have had so far is the battery life could be improved. It is not much different than the 4th generation but with all the other improvements, you would think battery life would be improved as well. The camera makes up for this slight hiccup as it is much better and by far my favorite feature. If you could not tell by my iPhone 5 smartphone review I would recommend buying this phone.
