SIM card can be cut for free in any mobile operator office, but there are situations when you must do it by yourself. And in this case, it is better to do it correctly, because otherwise it can be easily damaged and all the contacts stored in it will be lost.
Everything is simple if another Micro or Nano SIM is nearby, then it could be used as an example of the required size. If there is none, we really do not recommend to cut without seeing current dimensions.
Down below you’ll find a scheme, which will help to mark the appropriate size depending on the type of SIM card you need. It’s recommended to print whole scheme and put the card you want to cut on the center of the necessary dimensions. If there’s no printer around, then SIM can be placed directly on the tablet or laptop screen to mark required measurements. To the left there are docked examples of the Nano and Micro SIM cards. The main SIM chip is located in the center of the microscheme (scheme 4th step on the right), but it’s still not recommended to damage any of the SIM metal frame sides.
