iPhone 12 Compatibility

I am considering getting an iPhone 12 and noticed this on the website.

 

SIM Card

  • Dual SIM (nano‑SIM and eSIM)
  • iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are not compatible with existing micro‑SIM cards.

Does this mean the SIM cards Public Mobile sends won't work with and iPhone 12? Is there any way of using the 2 together?

 

Thanks

@Tyson1987 it's compatible. you should be able to break down your pin sim to a nano SIM for the iPhone 12. public mobile doesn't support esim

The PM SIM is what they call tri-punch. Full size, micro, nano. Each snaps out of the larger.

Hi @Tyson1987 

 

Public Mobile does not offer eSIM.

As mentioned, the current PM SIM card is 3-in-1 sizes. If your current phone uses a different size SIM card from the iPhone 12, you can snap out the unneeded part(s).

 

If you have a recent version of the PM SIM card, there should be no problem switching it over to iPhone 12.

@pankajjoshi iPhone 7 uses a nano SIM so your iPhone 12 will work

Hi @pankajjoshi 

As @gpixel4 mentioned, both iPhone 7 and iPhone 12 use the same size SIM card. So you're good to go.

 

However I suspect you've changed your SIM card (and probably forgotten) somewhere along the way as Public Mobile wasn't available 15 years ago (was it?)

@pankajjoshi chances are your sim is not 15 years old. PM came out March 2010, Telus acquired it Oct 2013 and relaunched it August 2015.

 

Also I believe the iPhone 4s were micro sim and your other phones nano sim. Which means you have somewhat a newer sim card which is 3 hole punch and not the much older sim cards that PM sold that were non punch.

 

Just saying...
