Does anyone know if the Voda stores will carry out a SIM card cutting service, viz. from Standard to Nano etc?

 

Trying to avoid new SIM and then rigmarole of transferring number.

SIM swap is done in seconds - I had one last week and as soon as the new SIM was on the handset it just worked (had to get a new SIM because the old one didn't work on a newer phone model).

Michael and Linux ... do you mean swap or cut?

Another vote for swapping. Do it all the time for work phones. Normally up and running before you leave the shop. Chopping isn’t necessary anymore.

UPDATE:  Vodafone store staff did SIM swap for me in about 3 minutes, even though the old number was originally a TelstraClear issue.

 

They did have a laugh at my pre-Vodafone/non-smart mobile (Nokia 2730 from 2010) <bg>. Still, they broke out a new SIM, stuck it in my old phone, called technical provisioning and asked for a SIM number swap …. said it would take 5 minutes to activate, but by the time the young lady copied my contacts to the new SIM, removed it and placed it in the new phone, it was already ringing as a test call.

 

Excellent service with a smile .... can't ask for better than that laughing

If you look at the back of a trio sim, you'll notice the nano sim portion is stepped in thus thinner.

From Wikipedia, 0.67mm as opposed to 0.76
