Can you support normal size SIM cards?

1) Most of us in China use normal sized SIM cards.

2) Most of mobile phones use normal sized SIM cards.

3) In emergency, the phone often runs out of battery.

4) We need to swap SIM cards from this phone to another.

So, support of  normal size SIM cards will be highly appreciated. Even for Lumia 920/820.

 

BTW: I see a rumor that Lumia 920 in China will provide support for TD-SCDMA, which is REALLY VERY GREAT!

Micro SIM cards are cut smaller than regular SIM cards but the pin outs are identical. I've placed my Micro SIM card in a regular SIM Card phone and it works no problem. It can be a little tricky depending on the phone and how it holds the regular SIM card. You just have to make sure the contacts are in the right spot.

 

To make it easier, you can always get a Micro-SIM to SIM adapter basically just a little plastic tray to make it easier to put a Micro-SIM card into a regular SIM card slot. Just google Sim Adapter and look for a Micro SIM to SIM adapter.

 

Something like this

Suggest that you don't try using adapter upon N8 amongst others:http://www.nokia.com/gb-en/support/troubleshooting/?action=singleFAQ&caseid=FA133055_en_US
