Which SIM card do I need?

Submitted by Abi on 20 January 2014 - 4:30pm

The easiest way to work out which SIM you need is to find your phone in our drop-down list below, or in the table at the bottom of this page. We frequently update this list but if you can't find your device listed then leave a message in the comment box at the bottom of the page, or drop us an email, and we'll get back to you.

Choose your Device from the list:


Alternatively simply pull out your existing SIM card and check it against the image and dimensions below. 

Note: You should make sure your phone is turned off when removing & reinserting your SIM card.

SIM card sizes

SIM cards come in three sizes; 

Mini or Standard SIM (left), Micro SIM (bottom) and Nano SIM (right) shown with 50p coin for scale

The simplest way to tell them apart is the amount of plastic surrounding the metal contacts; lots = standard, a little = micro, almost none = nano.

SIM Type Pictured Dimensions
Standard-SIM (a.k.a Mini-SIM) Left  25mm x 15mm x 0.76mm
Micro-SIM Bottom centre 15mm x 12mm x 0.76mm
Nano-SIM Top centre 12.3mm x 8.8mm x 0.67mm

Combi-SIMs

When you order a new SIM from your operator, they may send you a so-called 'combi-SIM'. This is both a micro-SIM and standard-SIM card in one piece. You can either keep it whole and use it as a standard-SIM, or pop the micro-SIM out as this picture shows.

A combi-SIM combines both a standard and a micro SIM

I've ordered the wrong sized SIM!

Don't worry, the networks will replace your SIM card for you if you get the wrong one for your phone. Just give them a call and they'll help get you back on track.

Can I cut my SIM card down to size?

We strongly advise against doing this. The SIM contacts in your phone are very, very fragile and using a trimmed SIM will risk damaging them beyond repair. Check out our in-depth guide to SIM card sizes to see the possible results!
