One size fits all sim

Can someone explain what the one size fits all sim card means on Pnets advertising for mobile phones.

Good afternoon Anon!

We send-out 'Triple Snap' SIM cards, that can be physically snapped-down from Standard- to Micro- and/ or then to Nano-sized SIMs as appropriate for your handset. Of course, they can't be snapped back to a larger size, but we can send out replacements (which we will usually have to charge for), if needed. Smiley

I hope that clears that up for you and don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any other questions!

Not wanting to confuse things but........

The credit card sized bit of plastic that you usually push the sim out of is in reality the full sized sim. I still have a few phones that take it whole as it were.

Which is why what is now called the standard sim is also often referred to as the mini sim.

Then as already said we have the micro and the nano.

Hi @Siju

We can certainly order you a replacement SIM card if you wish! Smiley If you'd like to send me a PM by clicking on my profile, I'll ensure this is sorted for you. We're not able to dispatch SIM cards over the weekend, but it will be sent first thing tomorrow and you'll receive it within 1-2 working days- it's as simple as that! 

Once it's received, you'll just need to get back in touch and we can manually activate it for you which can take up to two hours. -Ashleigh
