Micro sim adapter experience

Posted Apr 26, 2012 at 11:43 am in Threads > Smartphones & Tablets

Hello Android community!

I want to put a warning out there about micro sim adapters. I just recently tried one in my Nexus S. It went in just fine but it fatally bent and broke the sim contact pins when I pulled it back out rendering my phone useless… for calls, texts and mobile data anyway. Finding a replacement part has proven difficult.

It turns out I’m not alone:

Be warned that a micro sim adapter could be after your sim pins next… just be careful and thoughtful if you are switching from an iPhone (which uses a micro sim) to an Android phone and have to use one of these adapters.

Anyone else have a similar experience?

    I had the exact same thing happen trying to use a microsim with adapter on an HTC magic.

    Now its and Android-Pod only. Phones dead.

    Same thing happened to me. Had to have the pin soldered on. Works now though, but not going to put a micro sim adapter inside.
