Hi I just got my new phone today and also got my sim cut down to size at a local store, trouble is i cant now authenticate the sim on the new phone. Looking more closly it looks like the sim has been choopped to close on one side so that a tiny bit of the chip is now covered.


Will this mean i would need to ditch this sim and order a new one? if this is the case can someone send me a new micor sim?


Feeling frustrated this has happened as i cant recieve any calls at all now.


Thanks in advance

Does it say no sim inserted? I had this with my iPhone 4 have you tried plugging in and activation your phone via USB with the micro sim inserted?

so your suggesting that the sim is now screwed if the chip is hidden just a tiny bit?

If the gold bit has been touched @ all, the sim will NOT work.
