A lot of people have been asking us about Nano SIMs. So, here’s the lowdown.

First of all, nano SIMs work just like micro or a mini SIMs – only they’re a bit smaller and thinner.

We’ll be making Nano SIMs available to customers from tomorrow (Friday 21 September).

There are a few options for customers wanting to transfer across to a Nano SIM.

  • Post-Paid customers can convert their current Next G SIM cards to the Nano SIM format in-store or over the phone and we’ll get it sent out to you. There is no cost associated with this change over. If you’re ordering a Nano SIM compatible phone online on a contract, you’ll be shipped a Nano SIM with your device.
  • Pre-Paid customers can also have their current Telstra SIMs converted to a Nano SIM at no cost. We’ll also have $30 Pre-Paid Nano-SIM Starter Kits available to purchase for new Pre-Paid customers.

If you’re upgrading from an existing SIM to a Nano SIM make sure you copy your contacts across to cloud or desktop device management software so you don’t lose any information.
