Has everyone here (or a few) gone down the 'cut my current full size sim down to mini sim size' without ruining the sim card?

Just wondering how successful this usually is.. or wether I should go buy a $13 sim cutter off Deal Extreme?

Thanks.

Or just have it swapped to micro SIM.

p/s: Full SIM is credit card size, mini SIM is the current widely used SIM card, and micro SIM is the one used by iPhone 4 and iPad.

Hmm I suppose I could, but I am buying outright from Apple and I am on prepay.  Surely Vodafone only swap out to microsim for on account?

Hmm.. Isn't the swap for prepaid for $30? And that is also to make sure you got the latest SIM version as well.
