WANTED : OLD, but Valid SIM Cards £0.01

After a bad experience trying to get the turbosim 2008 working (see the other thread on HUKD), I've knackered my PAYG sim with Credit on it. Trying to get a rpelacement as we speak.

I'd like to try again, but maybe not with my main SIM - anyone got some old ones, any network other than 3, that I can experiment with to see if I can get the TurboSIm to work ??
Shipping/Payment:
hoping not to pay for any sims but will cover postage costs (somehow)

How did you cut it? I made a template on it with a marker and then cut it with stanley knife!! Then scraped it a bit as the i-sim sticked out due to the chip!!!

I just measured it by eye - and thereis at least 3-4mm of plastic between the cuts and the gold contacts but the sim just wont work - the phone seems to accept it (doesnt say "please insert sim") but it never connect s to the network. I think the Turbosim might have actually broken the SIM, as it was working fine in my old sim-free nokia and now it doesnt at all.

I seloptaped my sim to it just around the edges!! Have you tried going into Settings and where you have Network Selection do it manually and select the network you want it to be on!! Touch wood I have had no problems and my reception is good!!

Actually, the SIMs are of no use as they are all out of date - They wont register to O2 anyway. :-(:-(

Thats a bit strange :?

If that is the case I will refund the £2 but is it ok if I do so later tomorrow or something. You may have to send me a PM to remind me.

I must admit I was surprised- SIMS are a mix of expired in July 2007 and "Online Pre-pay Maldives SIM" and non will work in my other (already unlocked) nokia.
