Cutting a nano SIM for the iPhone 5

The new iPhone 5 has presented a small problem for some new owners because existing SIM cards are too big for it.  The iPhone 5 only accepts the new smaller SIMs.

So, Giffgaff have successfully trimmed down a MiniSIM card to NanoSIM size using a pair of scissors. They've tested their smaller SIM in an iPhone 5 and claim that it works just fine.

You would risk damaging your SIM if you were to attempt this, but if a large SIM is no longer of use to you then the risk may be worth taking.

You can read about it here, and take a look at this guide here.
