How to use a SIM card cutter?

Today I would like to show you guys how to use a sim card cutter? which is a great tool that you can use to cut a standard sized SIM card down to a Micro or Nano SIM. It’s very effective because you don’t have to get a new SIM card. Plus you can continue using your current SIM card, phone number and all. This need may arise when you upgrade phones and your new device uses a new standard or smaller size of SIM.

Function of a SIM cutter?

AS mentioned a SIM cutter allows you to resize a SIM to a Smaller size. For example when I was switching from a Galaxy S5 to a Galaxy S6 I had to cut my SIM card. The same may be true for iPhone users as they upgrade. It only takes a few minutes and is very easy to do.
