What is the difference between a micro SIM and a Nano SIM?

 

The difference between a micro SIM and a nano-SIM is that a nano sim is approximately 15% thinner than a micro sim. It is also thinner than a mini-SIM which are older sim card that was often referred to as just ‘SIM cards’. 

Do I need to sign for my sims?

If you have ordered 20 sims or less, we’ll deliver them in a parcel small enough to fit through your letter box. For larger orders, the parcel will be too big to fit through your letterbox, so they must be signed for upon delivery.

If you’re not in when your sims are delivered, they’ll be sent back to the nearest depot for collection. You’ll receive a note letting you know where they are and asking you to collect them. If you don’t pick up your sims after 21 days, they’ll be sent back to us.
