My son has a Pay as You Go GiffGaff SIM card in his iPhone 4 and we will be giving him an iPhone 5, very soon.
...shows that an iPhone 4 uses a "Micro SIM Card" and an iPhone 5 uses a "Nano SIM Card".
My question though is this - is the difference, literally just the plastic around the actual gold SIM part??
i.e. Would I be able to cut the plastic around the gold SIM on the Micro SIM card, so that it fits into the SIM tray for the iPhone 5, or will I need a new SIM altogether?!
Solved! Go to Solution.

As he is with giffgaff he can just request a new blank sim card from them which are now triple sims. He can just push out the small nano sim part and activate the sim by logging into his giffgaff account and activating the new sim here www.giffgaff.com/activate
This will transfer all his old sim details to the new one.

I used to work over at giffgaff, and getting a new SIM and swapping as the guys have suggested is by far the better option. Cutting it is irreversible if you get it wrong and easy to do! I have some mild experience in that haha.
