@kenj

Sims come in mini size, micro and nano. Not sure why you would want one the size of a credit card?

Re: credit card size sim

Not anymore from O2 but if you can get hold of the old credit card sim you can swap out the chip for a smaller current sim.
I've done this to get my old StarTac working.

Re: credit card size sim

Your best option is to call customer service or go instore

I believe there are adapters you can get but you would have to order one from any network operators a you simply put your current sim inside so it matters not what network you approach.

Re: credit card size sim

Here's a Lyca one on ebay that you can use to insert any micro sim into with a bit of sellotape to hold it in place,
