get a micro sim card if you can get it for free. Otherwise, trim it.

Trimmed mine. Most phone shops have what looks like a stapler they just punch your ordinary SIM and make it micro.

They go on sale all the time. Currently they are free on T-Mobile's web site.

Check here

I was told that they will hold $1 until you activate it. To me it's worth one dollar.

I suggest getting a new sim if you can, my husband and I got our N5s at the same time. He had to get a new micro sim, but I didn't. I just transferred mine over from my HTC One. I have so many dropped calls right now it's ridiculous. Going today to get a new one in hopes that, that is the issue.
