Does the Sim in my existing iPhone 5 just go straight into a 6 or 6+ or do I need a new sim?

Bing would tell you it'd fit in a 1520.

I assume you mean DuckDuckGo, is there a reason you use it over Google?

What no Pico SIM, such a lack of innovation.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Pick sim, where they slim it down?

AFAIK a nano just cut off the extra plastic anyway?

I seriously wonder why they didnt just cut off all of the plastic from the start.

 

We had to go from the SIM (credit card sized) Mini SIM (normal) micro sim then nano sim!

No - it's a new option in Safari so was just trying it out.

Apparently it does not track user searches or something.

Coming soon to a phone near you:

No sim at all - just a chip inside encoded by your network service provider before the phone is delivered to you. We call it IntegroSim!

You could also call it the Telecom 025 AMPS network!

Darn convenient being able to swap your SIM into any phone.  That's part of the reason I switched to the BellSouth network  (At lease it was before the micro and nano sized SIMs came out.)  Sheesh...  I've been with Vodafone longer than they have BEEN Vodafone (NZ) for both mobile phone and domestic internet.  I've still got the BellSouth invoice from 1997 (ish) tucked away somewhere for my first Ericsson GSM phone.

Early in 1995 I was working as a contractor in a Telecom Mobile office and overheard a conversation between some of the top brass about how they were going to hold the upstart at about 50,000 subscribers.  They weren't going to crush the BellSouth because that would have bought the Commerce Commission down on them.

Apparently the plan didn't work!  tongue-out
