Telstra will convert Next G SIM cards to the new nano-SIM standard used in Apple's upcoming iPhone 5 free of charge, it has confirmed.

The telco revealed today that nano-SIM cards suitable for use in the iPhone 5 will be available in Telstra stores from this Friday 21 September. Apple's iPhone 5 officially goes on sale in Australia on the same day.

Telstra confirmed to PC World Australia that customers can convert any current Telstra full sized SIM card or micro-SIM card to a nano SIM format in most Telstra retail stores across Australia, or over the phone.

"Nano-SIMs will be available from Friday 21 September," said Telstra spokesperson Peter Symons. "Customers can convert their current Next G SIM cards to the Nano SIM format in-store or over the phone and it will be sent to you. There is no cost associated with this change over."

The free nano-SIM swap over will apply to Telstra's post-paid and pre-paid customers, the telco said.

"Pre-Paid customers can also have their current SIM converted to a Nano SIM at no cost or new customers can buy a Pre-Paid Nano-SIM Starter Kit."

The nano-SIM card is 40 per cent smaller than a standard micro-SIM, measuring just 8.8mm wide and 12.3mm tall. It is also slightly thinner than a micro-SIM.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
