Go to your tmobile store and say your sim isn't working.. They should give you a newer sim which the medal part isn't as big as the old ones.. This will be much easier to cut. I tried my old tmo sim and I accidentally cut the medal because it was such a tight fit. With the newer sim it has a really small medal so you'll have more room to cut. Also, since the new sim has such a small medal make sure it's in the middle of the sim tray, if not your signal will spike up and down.

It's easy to cut, use sharp scissors and don't cut into the gold part.

I've successfully trimmed 3.

Nice template up there.

You can cut it yourself, making a template and all, I did one, works ok, then I bought one of those sim cutters and it is so much easier. slide it in the slot and push the handle down and your done. works perfect.

if you have spare cash, go on craigslist and find someone with a cuter. they usually charge 4-20 bucks. just to be on the safe side that you dont dalopatate it

when i first got my iphone 4 i tried cutting my old SIM to fit it but then i opened the SIM slot and found a brand new one so i just used that.
I'm always up to challenge a HIGH SCORE add me on gamecenter. Gamecenter ID = bcsketball






If it ain't jailbroken it ain't an iPhone.

i have the old style and actually cut in to the top part of the metal...seems to be working fine. i think it just doesn't use the contacts at the top. however my signal does seem to be a little more touchy than my 3g...maybe i should get a new sim.

I actually bought one of the cutters before finding out that a shop does it locally for $5. It was too late to cancel, but I had one of the older bigger medal on the TMOBILE sim card and it works perfect. The medal is still in one piece and just takes up the whole space. I also had a deactive AT&T sim with the smaller medal which I also cut to activate the phone.
