Thanks, yeah I have heard there were a lot of counterfeits being sold. I honestly don't even remember where I bought them from, so I searched my email and apparently I got them from Amazon, but they were labeled with some other brand name and the picture in my email looked completely different than what they actually look like and what the current Amazon page is showing. Shipped from Hong Kong and I only paid $1.57 total, so... *shrugs*.
There are two other brands on Amazon that are highly rated for about $5 shipped. Currently looking at this one. It has tabs so that it stops the SIM from being able to slip fully through the "hole" in the adapter, I imagine the pressure from the pins in the SIM tray and the tabs on the other side of the adapter will keep it snug in place. What worries me about these adapters is if the cutout isn't perfectly snug, you could have gaps that the pins might get caught on when inserting/removing.
Isn't my phone number stored on the sim card? So I would want to use the same sim card right?
Would this be useful? [link]
You could also get a new nano SIM card and activate it, pop it in your Samsung with a SIM adapter or even carefully laid in the larger punch-out for the SIM. Do a copy-to-SIM function (I assume this is available, like on some of the older GSM phones I used) and then pop it back in the iPhone and import the contacts.
I've done this with a spare T-Mobile SIM (sits in its larger "frame" for my old phones like a RAZR and original iPhone) and then I use the nano SIM only for an iPhone 6 we test with at work.
It looks like Family Mobile gives you only the proper sized SIM and not a "punch out the right size" one like T-Mobile does. For that, I'd suggest picking up a SIM adapter: [link]
> Can I just power off both devices, swap SIMS and then turn the Note 4 back on? would that work?
Yes, but you'll need a micro to nanoSIM adapter, since the Note 4 slot is bigger than the iPhone slot.
You could use an adapter like this.
Or you could order a new sim from T-Mobile (or go to a T-Mobile store and have a new one activated for the new phone). Downside to this option is that if you want to swap phones back you have to get a new SIM card.
Most budget low end devices use a Micro SIM, and not a Nano SIM, so the first thing I recommend would be to pick up a Nano to MicroSIM Adapter:
As far as phones go, I like this Blu R1 HD for $59 (note you do have to be an amazon prime member or its $99):
If you're looking to step up, thj Moto G4 Play is a great phone, and will get more T-Mobile LTE Bands:
Hope this helped!
You could always try an adapter in that case. At only $5 it isn't much of an investment.
Yep. I got this one for about $6. Works great when I've needed to switch between phones.
