Nano sim

I purchased a iPhone 5 from apple. I require a lte nano sim from Rogers.  How can I order that online from Rogers  and have it delivered?

 

Apple, I was told, does not offer SIMS with iPhone 5, nor did they inquire what carrier I use when I placed my online order with them.

Would like to know as well.  Went to a rogers store today and they had no information on when they will get them in or if they will get enough to for folks who bought outright.

They SHOULD carry them otherwise, as they do for other sim cards. How many, outside of that they have for the phones they are selling, at launch, may be another story. In the long run I am sure they will, but may be in short supply to start.

exactly, i ordered the iphone 5 online from apple.ca, and i called rogers, they have no clue about nano sims yet. they said it will be available when the iphone 5 hits the shelves. lets see. like i said, as soon as i receive my phone, i friggin want a sim card right away, so i can use it, rather than waiting for these carriers to have them in stock for another week. , hope they put it on there website like other sim cards they r selling. lets see

In Vancouver I am seeing the same thing so far, no one has any idea when they are going to get them.

 

Although, one place did say that the sims would be given out on a case by case basis, provided they did not need them for contract phones.

I was able to pick up a nano sim from a Rogers in hamilton today but I had to call around for quite awhile to find sorties that had them and were willing to sell them before the 21st.

Most of the Rogers plus stores have them. They have been told that the store Managers can make the decision if they want to start selling them as of now or on the launch date.

I was able to buy 2 nano sim cards last night from the Rogers plus store near my work. They only had around 30 - 40 of them in stock.

Hereus an update some other sitr posted which matches the previous posters re Rogers stores have/will have by 21st

 

 

From RogersChris:

"If you are activating an iPhone 5 in an Apple store, a customer will be provided a nano SIM card free of charge. However, Apple does not sell nano SIM cards out right. 

If you purchase an iPhone 5 on apple.ca, customers can purchase a nano SIM card on rogers.com or visit a Rogers store. At a Rogers store, if a customer activates a new postpaid plan, a nano SIM will be provided free of charge. Existing customers that require a nano SIM to replace their current SIM will be charged $9.99. Nano SIM cards purchased on rogers.com cost $9.99.

Nano SIM cards will be available on launch day. All Rogers stores will have them."

Yes but not all stores may have a lot of stock. Remember every store gets whatever the warehouse sends them. It could be like around 100 or even 200 nano sim cards. They get stock every week anyways & sometimes they do a rush delivery for stocks.

Apple said they wont be selling any nano sim cards because all the phones they are selling, are locked to the carriers.

 

Also i doubt Rogers would charge customers if they are getting the iPhone 5 from them. The stores will give a nano sim card to each person that upgrades their account to the iPhone for free of charge. What chris ment is that if you just go to the store & ask for a sim card, they will charge you are $11 with taxes for it

I went to the Rogers Plus store in Dieppe, NB.  The guy there said that none of the corporate stores in the area are selling sims -- we will have to "wait until they run out of phones".

 

I'm seriously considering breaking contract with Rogers if I cannot get a SIM card by Friday.  This may be the straw that breaks the camel's back.
