Does the Google Nexus 7 take a SIM or MicroSIM card?
I asked the same thing here: http://androidforums.com/nexus-7/655709-what-size-sim.html
It looks to be a Micro SIM (at least I hope it is, I got mine cut on Saturday).
I just found in the manual where it references the Micro SIM
It is a micro SIM.
I just upgraded to from a first gen Galaxy Tab 10.1 to a Nexus 7. When the N7 arrived, I realized that my standard SIM didn't fit.
I was able to (VERY CAREFULLY) cut down my regular SIM card to the micro SIM size/shape.
I'm still baffled as to why the industry thought we needed smaller SIM cards. I don't think the size of the SIM card is holding back our devices, given that the devices seem to keep getting bigger these days anyway!
I have a T-Mobile hot spot that takes a standard SIM. I wonder if TMobile will change it to a micro sim for me, then I can pop it in my Nexus 7 and just use a sim adapter when I use my hot spot.
Anybody have any experience with this?
Curious, will the N7 work with the T-Mobile $30 unlimited plan (with 100 talk minutes)? I was thinking of getting an N4, but really prefer screen size of N7. Have N7 non-3G at the moment.
As far as I know, yes, it will work with that plan. Just be aware that the N7 won't make cellular voice calls like the N4. Google Voice or Skype could fill that gap though.
Thanks! I thought the whole reason for buying a Nexus 7 3G was for the voice calls. Back to thinking N4... or just keeping my N7 with GrooveIP, works well enough.
