IPhone 4

IPhone 4

Hi Guys,

Looking for some advice on something.

I am looking to buy the mrs an Iphone 4 for xmas - currently she does not have an Iphone of any sort.

Can i just buy the phone (from ebay for instance) and then go into the shop and get them to upgrade the sim as i know that the Iphone 4 uses a micro sim.

Thanks in advance.

RE: IPhone 4

You can turn any Sim card into a Micro Sim.


With that said, you'd need to buy an unlocked iPhone to be able to use just a sim card from any carrier, or f you can;t find one that's unlocked you'd be stuck with having to use an AT&T card. As most American phones are tied to that carrier.
