Any suggestions on where to get a microsim cutter for cheap? Most of the sites have it for $25-$30 but don't have stock. I don't trust a lot of the people on eBay.

Just cut the card manualy. I wouldnt trust a simcard cutter since different simcard types have the chip in different sizes.

Get your ipad microsim, place it on the regular simcard so that it completely covers the metal chip. Trace an outline around the microsim so that you know where to cut it.

I cut my mirosim with a dremal and it was super easy, other people cut it without any issue using normal scissors.

i think the last MacWorld has a story on doing your own T-Mobile Micro Sim and info where to find an adapter to use it back on T-Mobile. Once you cut the Sim you cant reuse on T-Mobile without the adapter.

Thanks for the advice but I gave up and ended up buying the Microsim Cutter from SIMCUMCISE.COM They emailed me that the order would ship out on the 8th. It includes two microsim card adapters so I can re-use the sim in my phone.
