Default Considering a N1 to tinker with, use with my iphone 4? SIM related

I know the Nexus One doesn't use a micro sim, but doing some google searches I saw a reference to the fact that if you place the micro sim from the iphone 4 in the "right place" of the Nexus One it will work fine without an adapter.

Does this sound remotely possible? I know I could buy an overpriced adapter or try and make my own but was just curious if I could just put the micro sim in the N1 somehow and call it a day.

I love my iPhone 4 but it's kind of annoying I have a SIM card that will only work in that phone unless I use a work around.

I'm sick of my POS Droid Eris work phone and want a respectable Android phone to play around with and switch back and forth with my iphone 4.

Thanks for any help.

I honestly think you need to atleast make an adapter for your sim chip. The way the similar card is positioned it doesn't look like you could just let it sit there. You could always give it a shot, worse case you make an adapter.

You will need an adapter of some sort considering you push the sim down into it's slot... I doubt you would be able to get it to the right spot without an adapter much less get it back out again.

Good luck...

Are you sure it's a sim problems? If it keep resetting itself sounds like a phone problems. Have you tried a new sim card?

Anyone have any luck with any certain sim card adapters? I too have an iPhone 4 which I love for many reasons but also like to play with my nexus one. I got some german made adapters from amazon but they dont fit right, I have to really mess to get it to slide in on the N1, and it's very tight to pull out after.

Thanks.

One thing to consider is that your data plan (I assume you are using AT&T) is not going to work between the two phones. AT&T sees the iphone as a separate data plan from the Blackberry and "other" phones. That is how they will see the Nexus.

There is always wifi though.

The data plan does not work between my nexus one and iPhone 3G. I called AT&T and they told me they are two different data plans. Is there a workaround for this?

Not sure what to suggest really, I have an i4 and then I have a sim adapter, when I pop in the sim into my nexus one it just works, no tinkering nothing.
