Hey Skinny Mobile,

I've decided to save $3 and join skinny on $16 plan coming from Spark.

Totally lame, instead of MircoSIM I bought NanoSIM yesterday for my Nexus5.

Fine, googled skinny SIM swap on website, tried to follow the guide...

 1. Login to skinny website
 2. select SIM swap (not available if I don't have active skinny account)
 3. for new SIM swap I should not active current SIM - but can't login without ACTIVATING it.

and I can't activate it as I don't have a phone which will take NanoSIM.

Went to countdown shop today to swap Nano for Micro - they don't have any in store in St Lucks, Richmond Rd or Williamson Ave :(

me want MircoSIM to port my number before 2nd November.

IO wouldn't.  Heard too many horror stories  of bent SIM pins  caused by them..  Get the correct SIM  is the best solution..
