• Once your SIM card is placed on the appropriate place, mark the lines using a ruler and cut it along the lines. Be very careful while cutting the SIM as a SIM card can get damaged easily if not handled carefully.
• Smooth the edges of the nano SIM you have just created and use it in your iPhone 5.
