Default What size SIM Card in SGH-i717 Note?

I need to order a SIM card for a pre-owned Note, not Note II.

Does it use a mini or regular size SIM card? The search results i'm finding on this are inconclusive.

Thanks

Oh No!

That's a problem.

I was going to order a SIM card from Straight Talk Cellular:
http://www.shopstraighttalk.com/bpdirect/straighttalk/Start.do?action=view&siteType=TR&AID=&VID=&VC=&SAH CID=&COM=&gotoPhonelist=true&brand=STRAIGHT_TALK&s iteType=&productFamily=simcards&zip=62269&market=G SM4&locale=en&lang=EN

But they are only offering Micro and Regular SIM cards. Is there an adapter that might work?

Oh, I should add Straight Talk is displaying a Mini SIM, but calling it a Micro...

I haven't seen any adapters, but wouldn't be surprised if they do exist.

Some of the confusion might be because the Note II uses a micro sim.

Maybe I'm wrong.

So in your photo, which one fits your Samsung Note? Left, Middle, right?

See this SIM info on Wikipedia.

In the first photo I posted (taken from the web), from left to right you have mini, nano, and micro. I've re-attached it to this post, annotated. I think you should be fine with the Straight Talk offer. It looks like a mini.

Mini is standard/regular etc etc. Sometimes it will come in credit-card size with the ability to push out the mini sim.

This is in the wrong forum - there is a dedicated board for the SGH-717 Note LTE.
