    I guess you could call this "cutting edge technology"

    Worked perfectly, thanks for the template and spot on instructions. Also used the sandpaper to smooth the edges to fit in better as well!

    I recommend a sim card cutter. They're like $5 on eBay & are very easy to use. For those of you wondering, you do cut a little bit of the gold part, but it still works perfectly :)

    Fun little tutorial. I came to learn that i cut my sim card far too much, so the extra tape helped me out in making my simcard still stick and be useable. Worked flawlessly.

    This was surprising simple. I spent way too much time searching round the house for sand paper, tape etc and in the end it was really easy with just the scissors. Worked first time with no sanding. Cheers!

    Thank you for the well produced video! Just successfully converted a micro SIM to nano SIM for use in a ZTE tablet. Card was already active so this saved me a little bit of $. The key was sanding it down enough to slide into the slot☺

    So I bought a 3.8" phone several years ago, which used a mini-SIM. Then I bought a 4.7" phone, and that used a micro-SIM. Now I have a 5.96" phone coming soon, and it needs an even smaller nano-SIM.

    The process was extremely easy! I've already converted a Mini SIM to Micro SIM for an LG G4 and a Mini SIM to Nano SIM for a Samsung Galaxy A7. Thank you very much for your video, it helped a lot. Keep up the good work! I subbed!

    These instructions were clear and accurate. I followed them and successfully cut down a mini SIM to a nano SIM in a few minutes. I used 180 grit sandpaper to decrease the thickness of the SIM. It was also helpful in doing final adjustment to the width. In the end the new nano SIM fit in the carriage perfectly in all three dimensions. It wasn't as hard as I'd thought. Thanks for the great instructions!

    If you don't have sandpaper, you can use a nail file.

    Thanks for this. Worked for me, even if I had to cut some of the metal contact area. Not a problem, works like a charm!

    Worked perfectly for me. I went from a Note 4 (micro Sim) to Nexus 6P (nano Sim). No problems at all. Thank you for this! I just used Scotch Precision scissors that I got from CVS and worked great. Was very easy to cut.

    Thank you so much for the tutorial! Worked perfectly. I used a nail file for the sanding instead though. :)
