How To Cut SIM Cards
Follow these instructions at your
own risk. Cutting your SIM card
may destroy it!

MiniSIM (2FF) to MicroSIM (3FF)

1. Print this page at 100% scale on a
DIN A4 page.
2. Fix your SIM card with doublesided tape to this template.

3. Use a ruler and a marker to draw
the cut lines onto your SIM card.

4. Cut your SIM card along the drawn
lines using scissors. Cutting
contacts usually does not impact
functionality as the actual chip below
is much smaller.

5. Round the edges by grinding them
with sandpaper or a file.

Including tolerance defined by ETSI specifications (+30µm/
-70µm) NanoSIMs (0.67mm) are just 60µm thinner than
previous SIMs (0.76mm), which corresponds to the
thickness of a human hair and thus does not make a
difference in practice, notably not on the iPhone 5.
