NonprayingMantis: with the benefit of hindsight, the best option in the future would seem to be asking the store to fit any sim adaptor you want to use. Then if it breaks off in the device you have a much stronger case for it being their fault.
Mavok: Hi Everyone,
I've got some really good news. I spoke to the store manager again today and we managed to come to an agreement. My new cell phone will now get fixed and the store manager has restored my faith in his business. I am really happy now and will definitely be staying with Telecom :-)
To all those who helped me with this issue, thank you very much!

Although the question is, would they all agree to do that. They are then possibly liable for any damage they cause.
Absolutely. Telecom retail stores are very good about providing service for products you buy there. Installation is just part of the job.
caldazar: My friend bought a Note II and slotted his sim in with an adapter, no problem. I watched him do it.
Obviously, there is always the chance of bad luck I guess.
I've used adapters for years (micro) and just recently (nano) without issue.
caldazar: The only question I have... is it possible the sim card slot never worked? :-) ie. DOA. I guess we'll never know unless you used other sims in the Note II before switching.
ajobbins: What is the SIM tray in a Note II like?
ajobbins: At the time of the original purchase, did the store offer any explanation as to why they were
supplying a Nano rather than a Micro?
I think the adapter I had had a slight defect because the nano sim kept slipping out of it before I was able to insert it. If the nano sim hadn't been so loose in its adapter then I probably wouldn't have had any issues.
