I did and knackered it completely. Got a micro sim in the post the next day from them after giving them some sob story.

In not unfortunately, thanks for the offer though.

Am i right in saying that that ALL normal sims can be cut down if done correctly?

Yes, i did mine, Use the template and cut slightly bigger if any thing and then keep trimming till it fits

I have cut down loads and the only one that failed was a real old T-Mobile sim which was just bigger than the template whichever way I cut it...
I have cut them with a sharp pair of scissors as well

So, as I understand it, you were able to cut the standard talk mobile sim card down to a micro sim? A quick look shows that the talk mobile chip has a bit too. much gold on it (the golden chip I mean), were you able to cut it without trimming the actual gold chip?
