You should find that the micro sim pops out of the standard sim.

Hi there and thanks for visiting the community.
You could always perform a sim swap.
When you perform a sim swap,ALL credit and any remaining goodybag/Gigabag allowance,along with your giffgaff phone number and any payback that you currently have,is transfered to your NEW sim card,,,easy.For members who wish to change from a standard size sim card,to a micro sim card,just check the middle of your current standard size sim card.It should also have a micro sim card that simply pops out in the middle of your standard size sim card,if not,do you have a spare ( un-activated ),giffgaff sim card ?.
If not,dont worry,simply order the correct sim card size,by clicking onto your "Spread giffgaff" or click onto the link below Smiley Wink

Then simply,perform a sim swapSmiley Very Happy.

Please take a look at a great guide,by clicking onto the link below.

If it doesn;t pop out you can either order new one or you can ask in any mobile shops to cut it down for you.

What size sim do you have now? If you have a standard sized sim less than two years old then you should have a hybrid sim where you can push out a micro sim from the centre.

If you have a nano sim you could get a sim converter to be able to use it in a micro sim phone or order a new sim and carry out a sim swap.

You can transfer your existing account, including your number, any credit, active and queued goodybags and any payback points, from one sim to another using the sim swap feature.
