Default What size SIM?

What size SIM is required for the Moto G handset in the UK?
Standard, Micro or Nano?
I've pre-ordered one on Amazon and want to check before it arrives.
Thanks for any advice
Nigel

From what I've found on the interwebs, I believe it's a Micro SIM

Hey,
Yes its a micro SIM.

Don't use an adapter with it to make a nano SIM fit, those can get stuck.

Cheers,
Nicole

Tmobile site show this about 3G speeds:
Quote:
Only 3G phones that support the 1700-MHz band are compatible (not all 3G phones support it). If you own a 3G phone that does not support the 1700-MHz band, it will operate at 2G (EDGE) speeds on our network.
Moto G site show this about it:
Quote:
US GSM Model: GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz)
Will the MG use Tmobiles 3G network?

I just want to make sure I get the best speed possible and compatible with this phone!

It seems Tmobile are offering the no-contract Sim cards for free also, according to droid-life.com website!

****Edit****
I just ordered a free micro sim card, they are free for a limited time!


Thnx.

Did you order it from Tmo? I ordered mine yesterday also and it was free. A couple of other AF members said they ordered some and they didn't mention being charged. One guy said he ordered two!

I guess you mean you ordered it on Thursday?
