    Anyone know what kind of SIM card the Nokia Lumia 920 require? I'm not sure if it is a regular SIM card or a micro SIM card. Can anyone help me out on this? Thanks so much

    Ya Micro. What sucks is your previous phone becomes useless if it uses a regular sim card since the new one won't fit in it. I've always considered my previous phone to be a "backup" in case I break the new one or it simply stops working for any given reason. Now I can't do it. My HTC Surround is NFG now because the sim won't work in it. I'd have to drive down to AT&T if I needed to use the old one and move my plan around again to the old chip until I get a new phone and do it all again. Defeats the whole idea of using sim cards because during this tech transition, it will be the same as having no sim card until we buy a few model generations into the new sim size.

    What also sucks is now I can't bring my old Tilt 2 when I travel and use it as a hotspot where I need internet. It was never affected by AT&T tethering package requirement. So much for that luxury :)
    Current Phone 1 = Nokia 920 WP8
    Current Phone 2 = HTC Surround w Mango
    Older Phone 3 = AT&T Tilt 2 (TP2) WM 6.5 OEM
    Current Level of Sanity = None ^^

    Well, you can always get an adapter for $1 (or less) online.

    ...d**n....the make adapters? I like microSD to SD? I thought about it while typing it but thought to myself....I think sim cards are so small that...na...it'd make them too thick. Great, now I have to look for one and try it heh

    Well if you don't do the change it now, you will need to do it later on. My first phone with Micro sim was the N9, then iPhone 4S, Lumia 800, Nokia 808 PureView and now Lumia 920. All use MicroSIM.
    It's the industry standard... other than for iPhone 5 naturally. ;)

    And like mentioned you can buy plastic 2 dollar adapter from ebay. Got myself one when i changed my SIM for N9.

    If you get your sim cut down to a micro sim keep the 'waste bit' and you can use that as an adapter (as long as it was cut in one piece!)

    I bought a microsim cutter off ebay that also came with a few plastic adapters for placing back into a regular full-sim phone, but I've not needed them since I could use the discarded bit that was cut off as a fine adapter.
