How to Make a DIY Micro SIM to SIM Adapter

How to Make a DIY Micro SIM to SIM Adapter

We've shown you how to turn a regular SIM into a Micro SIM, but what if you want to do things the other way around? Here's how to turn a Micro SIM into a regular-sized SIM card.

You'll simply take a regular SIM card and trace it onto an old gift card, credit card, or other piece of hard plastic. After you cut out the shape, you'll need to figure out where your Micro SIM would have to sit inside that in order for its contacts to be in the same spot on those of the regular SIM.

Then you'll cut and trace a hole, slip in your Micro SIM, slap some tape onto the back so that it doesn't fall out, and tada! You've made yourself a Micro-SIM-to-SIM adapter.

If you want to use this adapter in order to turn your iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS into a data-only device by using your iPad 3G's Micro SIM, you'll have to change some carrier settings, but that'll only take you a few taps. [Hijinks IncThanks, Aaron!]

  1. Guys, as far as I know, there is no need to buy two Ipad data plans! I heard there is a thing called micro sim adapter. Basically, u put ur microsim card inside it, and then u can use it in both Ipad and Iphone. I googlesearched it and found this site that sells it: gomicrosim . com They say it costs 4.5 EUR. They also seem to offer the sticker guide to cut the regular simcard into the microsim. According to my calculations it should save me 1440$, since now I have no need to buy another 2 years plan with AT&T.
