iPhone 4 on T-Mobile using a SIM cut with scissors - Works a treat!

Just a note to any T-Mobile people thinking of getting an unlocked iPhone and cutting down their T-Mobile SIM to size.

I did this last night and it is working great so far. So be brave with those scissors and try it!

I've got a much better data plan (3GB with a very lenient fair usage policy) than anything being offered by the providers now!

Yes it's a misconception that 'micro sim' is a completely different type of sim.

I'm looking at doing the same.
unlimited minutes
unlimited text
3GB internet
£20 per month
Iphone 4 32GB white PAYG from Apple with Quidco or Tesco and unlock it.

manufacturing issues. Could be due to the white turning yellow over time....

Got it from T-Mobile when they released the Desire.

£15 for 300 minutes, unlimited text, 3GB internet then Ive added a £5 booster for unlimited minutes. 24 month contract, the length doesnt bother me as I'm happy at the 3GB allowance which is rare now so godknows what data limits will be on so called 'unlimited' tariffs by then. The Desire was £100. It was the standard deal offered by TMobile.

Ive subsequently sold the Desire and using a dumbphone until the white iPhone 4 is out or I find a good deal on a 3GS.

This is the exact deal I have too!.. Got it with an HTC Hero some time ago, knowing it was 24 months and I would never keep the handset that long, but figuring I could swap it in. I thought that the micro sim issue had thwarted my genuis plan but thankfully came across this whole cutting it with scissors thing!

Selling my HTC hero and my ipod touch now as they are redundant, so hoping to get back a good few of the £'s I spent on the iPhone. Also gonna think about selling my camera if this turns out to take good enough snaps.

Maybe I am putting too many eggs in my iphone 4 shaped basket?

Hey,

This might be bad news for you, as I am T-Mobile, but didn't need to do any settings etc, so something might have gone wrong...
