    I have a phone that has a micro-sim slot, but only have a normal-sized sim card. Is it safe to just file/sand/cut down the plastic until it fits, or is there something vital, like a chip, embedded in the plastic? (Other than the obvious area where you can see the connectors.)

    You can cut them to size, but most networks will provide you with a micro-SIM if you ask.

    Thanks! I figured they would, but the closest location to me is an hour drive.
