Does VF offer a SIM swap service to go from a normal sized SIM to a microsim.
Thinking about picking up a SGS3 which takes a mSim.

Cheers

Of course would be crazy if we did not provide Micro SIMs and it's free

They do? I asked Vodafone if they can swap my normal sim card for a micro sim. They said they are issuing a new sim card to me so I have to pay $20 for a new sim card. This was back in June though. At the time I thought it was a bit unfair but I ended up paying it because I really needed that sim card.

June was over 6 months ago! It's changed now some stores still could charged but Vodafone owned stores it's free as of about 2 months ago

Not sure why you thought it was unfair, Vodafone has to pay for the SIM card they don't come free

They have been, and afaik it was always free if you were on account, however prepay users had to pay.

Ohk that would make sense. My plan was on account for a couple of years but I had switched to prepay a couple months before the sim swap. I think thats the reason that I thought it was unfair, but in hindsight, it makes sense.

Changed to microsim in September or so on Vodafone and 2Degrees (Touch2Pay).

Both were free, quick and easy.
