is it possible to cut a sim to make it a micro sim

is it possible to cut a sim to make it a micro sim? I am currently abroad and need a virgin micro sim urgently. I read online I can cut my Virgin sim to make it micro, will it work on a Alcatel m pop?

thanks

Re: is it possible to cut a sim to make it a micro sim

You can do it, you get a tool to do it for you (will take time to order/arrive) or can try it freehand (if you mess it up your phoneless) but IMO its better to get VM to send you a new SIM but safer and in the end possibly less time wasted.

 

I did read you need it now but not much else can be done but cutting free hand it or trying to get a tool in a store where your at.

It's not recommended.

 

Are you sure you can't just pop out the micro sim shape from the card already?

if you can find a phone store / market stall there simliar in most countries in that they usually have the sim cutting tool and will do it for you (for a small fee)   i got mine done like that a few years ago and had no issues

Depends how old the VM Sim is, all recent ones can do so.
