This adapter will convert your micro sim from your iPhone or iPad to a standard size sim that you can use in any phone that supports a standard sim.


Micro-SIM is also known as 3FF ("Third Form Factor") SIM-card, and in fact it is a shrunk version of the common SIM standard, and expected to be used in quite a number of cell phones soon. The dimensions of the Micro-SIM are 12x15mm, which is more than twice more compact than the common SIM-card. This means it will not fit into your current mobile. 

The SIM of the first generation was of a size of a credit card. Then current standard-sized card appeared, and now the World is ready to perceive the SIM of the third generation - the 3FF, Mini-UICC or Micro SIM. Although it is much smaller in size, its contact area remains the same. In fact, there are not many producers and mobile service providers using this type of SIM yet. 

The first device expected to try it out was iPad, followed by U.S. network carriers T-Mobile and AT&T, alongside with European Orange, O2 and Vodafone joining the team soon. As for German Simyo, for example, it is already offering its users to reserve the Micro-SIM-sized cards. Other providers like A1 and Bob from Austria promise to have them available online soon as well. 

However, a big question remains concerning the reason for Apple to use new micro SIM card in iPad, which is at least twice bigger in size than iPhone 3G/3GS. Saving space did not seem to be the correct answer, so Apple announced Apple 4 using Micro-SIM as well. And maybe the built-in modems for the new Mac Book Pro with MicroSIM ports will soon appear. 

What is the use? 

European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has developed Micro-SIM standard with the intent to fit it into small devices, while iPad can hardly be called a tiny one. But everyone who wants to use Micro-SIM on any other device than iPad / iPhone 4 now has a way to do this using an adapter. The Micro-SIM adapter (also known as 3FF adapter or Mini-UICC adapter) is a durable plastic frame that is able to carry the micro-sized SIM (3FF) and transform it into the standard-sized card (SIM). 

This option will allow you to easily use your Micro-SIM both on iPad (iPhone 4G) and your iPhone 3G /3GS (or any other mobile). You will not need to get a second data plan, but you will save much cash.

Reasons why you shouldn't buy from Hong Kong or China Click Here

Here are four reasons why you may want to reconsider.

1) You will have to wait 2-4 weeks for the item to arrive, and then it may not arrive at all.

2) No matter what the seller will tell you, if you buy from outside the EU, you WILL have to pay 20% Vat and 14% Import duty. So what seems a cheaper purchase will have expensive hidden costs. Customs' invoices will be sent through 3-4 weeks after the item arrives.

3) If the seller attempts to aid you in avoiding these taxes by declaring the item illegally as a gift there is a high probability customs will impound the item. You will then have paid out a lot of money for nothing.

4) Warranty will be an issue if you buy from abroad. If you're lucky enough to buy from a Chinese or Hong Kong seller which does offer a warranty you'll find that should a fault occur the cost of sending the item back is hugely expensive (up to 50% of the item value). This is once of the reasons that they may be cheaper.

Buy from MantisTech a genuine UK Seller and we'll promise...

1) Delivery is normally next day but usually within 3 working days as all of our stock is in the UK and sent from the UK

2) No nasty customs or duty payments to make; the price you pay with us is the final payment you make.

3) We test all our stock before we send out however any fault or warranty issues are dealt with in the UK quickly and efficiently

BEWARE OF SOME UK COMPANIES WHO DROP SHIP THEIR PRODUCTS FROM ABROAD. This means that you will have the same issues as if you bought from abroad. Always ask if they have items instock and where their stock is. A tell tale sign is companies who specify that deliveries can take 7-14 days. If they had their stock in the uk it would only take 1-3 days normally.

At MantisTech you can easily tell if any item is instock as each item has a stock indicator. We're also proud to have all items in stock in the UK ready for fast safe dispatch!
