MicroSim card for Singtel, M1 & Starhub

The micro SIM's chip is the same size and carries the same features as its bigger brother but is held by a piece of plastic no bigger than the chip itself. Consumers may be disappointed that they will be unable to use their existing SIM cards in the iPad 4th Generation or iPad 3G, which lends weight to the suggestion that Apple's move is, in part, for the operator's benefit.

However, we do not know which telcos in Singapore will be releasing Micro-SIMs. However, you are able to make your own MicroSims card!

Let us clear the confusions of Sim, Mini Sim and Micro Sim. Sim cards we are using currently are called Mini Sim or second generation of Sim and Sim card we are talking about is micro SIM or third generation Sim. First generation Sim card was as big as credit card that’s why second generation Sim are called Mini Sim.
Note / Warning :
1. Do it at your own risk and carefully because the chip is very delicate. It will be a bit  harder to use the SIM so file the sim very delicately and try again and again.
2. The SIM you are using may differ in shape of the circuit from that used by us. Don’t worry about that and mind the circuitry gap.
3. Try with a useless SIM first.
Requirements :
A Mini SIM, Marker pen, Scale, Sharp cutter, File tool (Nail File) and some patience.IMG_0237
  1. The first step is to get a card that allows access to the UMTS network.IMG_0228
  2. With a ruler / scale take measures to cut the SIM and mark with a pen.  (12mm x 15mm)IMG_0232 IMG_0233IMG_0234
  3. Mark the cutting line with a cutter and then bend off from same line, the plastic SIM is soft enough that it can be cut with scissors.IMG_0235
  4. Proceed to sharpen the edges of your new micro-SIM with File tool (Nail File). That’s it.
