Converting from micro-sim to nano

Hi,

 

I'm considering getting a dual-sim Samsung Galaxy Note 5 from overseas because Rogers doesn't carry the 64GB Note 5.  My current phone is an Xperia Z1 which uses a micro-sim.  The dual-sim slots in the Note 5 are apparently nano-sims.  So would I be able to have my micro-sim converted to a nano-sim if I go to a Rogers store?

Hello @Gummyrabbit

You would have to pay $9.99 + tax to get a new sim card. Once you get it, have the Rogers rep at the store activate it on your account at no cost!

Hey @Gummyrabbit ... as @Meowmix said, Simple as that.

If by conversion you mean "Cut" the card to that size? - There is more risk of doing so than not.
Just get a new Sim card at a rogers store and you might as well get it as SureTap Sim to utilize NFC functionality while you're at it.

Cheers.

Hello @ShakTiburon

Unfortunately Rogers Suretap does not work on unlocked devices. So they won't be able to use that. They could use NFC beaming or other ways for NFC without a sim but not paying for products with Suretap.

Hi @Meowmix
Fortunately, it does 😉

Suretap sim card may not allow unlocked devices to work with SureTap app. But I use TD Mobile app (to use my Visa) on an unlocked S3 device from USA...

I assume you are speaking of the SureTap App?
Hmm, now this concerns me, I haven't used my S3 for a while (its for travelling outside of Canada only). Maybe it worked before and not anymore?

Hello @ShakTiburon

 

 

Yes I was speaking about the Suretap application. It won't wor on any unlocked phone if u try to use it. I gotten emails from Rogers, Suretap team and reps explaining it. 

 

If u have a NFC sim and u try to use it with a third party app then yes it would work but not on the Suretap app.

Re: Converting from micro-sim to nano

Yea, I just use the NFC sim proper name tagged to it.
Which is called SureTap Sim card. (It's just an NFC Sim card).
SureTap App not working, I can believe (Though didn't try it).
