Moving from a standard or micro-SIM to a nano-SIM? It’s easier than you think.
If you’ve recently upgraded your phone to an iPhone 5, or if you’re thinking about upgrading, Three makes it really simple to get a nano-SIM.
What is a nano-SIM?
A nano-SIM does exactly the same job that a standard or micro-SIM does, it’s just a lot smaller (around 40%). Being smaller means that space is saved inside the phone it fits into, which means a slimmer, lighter phone. Currently the only phone that takes a nano-SIM is iPhone 5, but others are expected to follow.
How do I get one?
If you take out a Pay Monthly iPhone 5 plan with us, we’ll automatically give you a nano-SIM with the phone. However, if you’re on Pay As You Go, or if you switched to Three from another network,, there are two other ways you can get one.
Visit any 3Store
Pop into your local 3Store and ask for a nano-SIM for your phone. If you want to keep your old number, we can do this for you as well., We’ll just need your current phone number and a few other details - then within a few hours, your number will be moved across to your new nano-SIM. We can also transfer your contacts for you.
