DiGi will be offering the nano-SIM for iPhone 5 users in Malaysia starting Wednesday, 26 September 2012.
Free Nano-SIM will be offered to new postpaid customers who sign up for any DG Smart Plan or DG Postpaid Plus. Existing customers can swap for new Nano SIMs or sign up for the respective postpaid plans above at selected DiGi outlets in the Klang Valley from 26 September.
Existing postpaid customers will have to pay RM20 for swapping their existing SIM to the Nano SIM. The Nano SIMs will be available in almost 250 DiGi outlets nationwide by early October 2012.
The size of SIM or Subscriber Identification Module has evolved over the years as the size and design of mobile devices changed. The first SIM card introduced was in the same size as a credit card. It was further reduced with the same thickness to a Mini SIM. It eventually evolved to the next version called the Micro SIM with dimensions of 15 mm x 12 mm. The Nano SIM was subsequently introduced in early 2012 with dimensions of 12.3 mm x 8.8 mm x 0.7 mm, which is 15% thinner than its predecessor. The Nano SIMs can be inserted into adaptors for use with devices that utilise Mini SIMs or Micro SIMs.
Customers can refer to this link tomorrow for the full list of participating DiGi outlets nationwide that will offer the Nano SIM.
Meanwhile Maxis Nano-SIM for the iPhone5 is available today at selected Maxis Centres in the country.
P.s: We are still waiting for the details on Celcom Nano-SIM for the iPhone 5.
