Default What Size SIM?

I'm a little late to the party, but my 3G N7 should arrive on Monday according to TNT

Anyway, I can't find any concrete info online about what size SIM it takes? Is it standard or Micro?

Also, how does it work? Do I just plug it in and off it goes (as with phones), or will I need to configure APN's or anything like that?

According to this it is the same as the G Note 2 on ATT, which this says is...

Mini-SIM

The second link looks like the guy tried to plug and play on ATT and had to fudge some apns or something. I'm sure it depends on where you're getting your sim from. Speaking of which, do you have a choice? Now I want to know if I could upgrade my 32gb to a 3g and get a pre-paid sim at the gas station and plug it in...?

Good luck!


EDIT!!!

This says Micro, and I believe it more than the last ones!

I'd seen the Note link previously, but I'd also found a similar question in the One XL forum where it said it was Micro. I'll go with the official Google support page, if that says Micro, it'll be micro.

It's a specific, data only plan (12 for 10GB) so I'm guessing I'll just need to plug and play? From what I've seen people appear to have to start messing about when they have voice and SMS on the plans too.

Thanks for the info, Monday can't come soon enough!
