I was waiting to purchase an iphone 5 and put it on straight talk but unfortunately I have heard at the new iphone will feature a nano sim card which straight talk does not offer. Do you think/know if straight talk will be offering this when the iphone comes out?
I want to know as well. I asked about testing a Straighttalk nano SIM with their customer service group. They replied that they do not offer NANO SIMs at this time. I hope they will when the iPhone 5 is officially released...
Well AT&T is getting the iPhone 5 and T-Mobile just announced they are indeed going to be carrying the new nano-sim. So it's only a matter of time till Straight Talk starts carrying the new nano-sim also. As they do with the current micro-sim for the previous generation iPhones.
Just FYI, I called and talked to someone at Straight Talk about this. They did not know what the nano sim card was, at first they seemed to think the nano sim was the same thing as the micro sim as they are doing in this email. Once I explained what the nano sim card is he told me they don't currently have nano sims in stock and could not tell me when or if they will get any in.
FWIW I'm still going to be getting an iphone 5 and just cutting down the micro sim card to fit. One thing to keep in mind is that the spec is thinner as well so I'll have to sand off some of the back side of it.
