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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
