I plan on getting the new Google Nexus 4 when it released in two weeks time.
However it is microSIM only. And I currently have a normal-sized SIM in my HTC Desire.
Do I need to cut it myself or will GiffGaff send me a new microSIM? (keeping my existing account details!).

Note that for security your current SIM will be immediately disabled and replacement SIMS are barred on delivery as a security measure. You will need to ask an agent to lift the bar but this does not require a further topup to do.
Or you can have your current SIM cut down to microSIM format in a phone shop for a small fee, or DIY with a SIM cutter from Amazon/Ebay or a pair of scissors http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJ4N9jZ980A

1) Take your current SIM to local phone shop to have it cut into a micro SIM. Have it done professionally.
This is your quickest and easiest option. It should cost you no more than £2/3. It's 100% effective and takes seconds.
I have attached a video to show you exactly how the sim is cut into a micro sim below, have a peek :-)
2) if you don't fancy that you can Report the sim: lost/stolen/damaged.
Please note, once you have reported your sim any of the above it is IMMEDIATELY barred. You will have to wait for your new sim to arrive in the post which is usually within 5 working days.
Any credit/goody bags you had on your old sim will be transferred so no need to worry there.
ALSO... All sims ordered are now 'hybrid' sims (micro sims)
Follow this link to proceed:
Good luck :-)

You could cut it down yourself.Or take it to your local phone unlocking shop and they'll cut it down to size for you for a few quid.
You could report it lost/stolen but you'd lose service until you'd received and activated your new dual sim-normal size but with a pop out microsim.
