I have an old Nexus phone and would like to use it with the existing SIM (from my iPhone 4). The Nexus keeps saying that it cannot detect the SIM after I put the SIM into the SIM slot. Looks like I need an adapter for that? Does anyone know a good one to buy (online or store)?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Actually SIMs for apple devices are special some are microsim and if you try to put one of them into a regular phone it wont work. I would suggest you to get a simcard by your own, it will cost you $10 and you can either activate it online or call *611 to get it activated. Sim cards can only be purchased at the store. Hope this would help you!
Your Nexus is probably a standard sim size. Does your Nexus look like this? If so it is a standard sim. Your iPhone 4 is a micro sim. If you line up the metal on the micro to the metal on your nexus it may work, but you can also go online and pick up a micro sim to standard sim adapter, which will fit in your nexus like a normal sim. It will look something like this.
Hope that helps!
Thank you all for the help! If I go to a TELUS store to get a regular SIM and activate it, I guess the old micro SIM will be deactivated automatically right? In that case, I may just get an adaptor so I can switch between two phones.
Hi Hippoyoyo, yes you can only have 1 active sim card at any given time on one phone number. Getting an adapter should theoretically work, however it is not supported by Telus, so try at your own risk!
