Do most people NOT recommend using a SIM Cutter, to cut a MICRO SIM to a NANO SIM? I did it. ONCE. But it did work just fine after I cut it. No problems.

Maybe I got lucky? Still have the cutter. Like I said,i did it, and it did work. If memory serves me correct, I "think" I had an LG 2, which used a MICRO SiIM(I don't think it was a regular sim, but I could be wrong. It was a while ago) and i cut it down to a NANO sim for an Iphone 5C, and the cut went PERFECTLY, and it worked just fine.

This is no longer a recommended option?

With the cost of a sim kit at around $1, the safest thing is to transfer to a nano sim. CDMA sims are the most trouble to just do a transfer. Unless you can find a sympathetic CSR that is willing to do a sim replacement and not question the sim size, you would need the IMEI from a phone that uses a nano sim and is Verizon whitelisted. GSM is easy. Just a simple transfer.

That said, I am still using a nano sim that was cut down from micro. It is in my daily driver and have never had a problem. I have swapped it into at least 3 different phones. A nano sim is very slightly thinner and, I suppose a cut down micro could get stuck.

I would recommend only activating BYOP nano sims. Use an adapter if necessary for micro slots.

Yes, only a real nano for use in a nano to micro SIM adapter. A cut down micro would be extra thick in the adapter.

I used my cut down nano in a micro adapter in my S4 for a while. No problem. YMMV

Well the second LG G4 I ordered is also defective. I'm done with LG. I'm going to check out the Samsung phones.

The only fix was a motherboard swap from LG. There must be a lot of them that did not have that done. Needs documentation.
