    Hey folks

    I got a couple quick questions to ask...

    If I get a cap with an iphone can I use its sim card in an unlocked phone with an adapter (micro sim to sim) or is the sim locked to the iphone?

    If I chop a normal sim card into a micro sim card will it work in a iphone 4?

    Finally is android phone better than an iphone?

    Cheers Harrison

    1. If the phone is unlocked, it stays unlocked (unless unlocked with Ultrasn0w)

    2. Yes. Make sure you cut it properly.

    3. IMO, no.

    3. NO, all those phones are wannabes iPhones.

    iP4 sim card is a micro sim, so no you can't.

    What about using a adapter? "Micro sim to sim" / like those on ebay?

    I see no reason why you couldn't, they don't exactly lock the sim to the phone, just the phone to the network.

    Well I need to be sure because I'll be signing up for 24 months on a 79 dollar plan. It's a uk based carrier called 3 but is also in austraila where I live.

    if your getting an iPhone4 why are you going to be using another phone? If you're going to be selling it that is a rip off if your carrier makes you pay for a higher data plan than what normal phones get(thats how it is in that States at least). I would recommend a android based phone with 2.0 or later at least.
