You’ve pre-ordered your iPhone 5 and now waiting for the delivery. If you’re an iPhone 4/4S user you might be wondering about the iPhone 5′s nano SIM card size.
Thankfully, if you already cut your SIM card to make it fit for your iPhone 4 or 4S, you can cut it even more to make it compatible for the iPhone 5.
As you can see from the image above, the Micro SIM and Nano SIM were originally standard size SIM cards.
Just like the Micro SIM, the Nano SIM also has a converter to convert it to a full sized SIM card.
This is a bit annoying – as you all know but this is one of the many ways on how Apple and its partners (mobile service providers) prevent their customers from freely switching to another network.
Now you just need to find your nearest mobile phone repair center to get your SIM card cut, or probably get a SIM cutter from eBay. If you’re willing to take some risks, you can cut your own SIM card with a pair of scissors; video tutorials are available on YouTube.
Here are some photos we have of the new EarPods earbuds for iPhone 5, the new iPod touch and nano.
It’s been a while since Apple last redesigned their earbuds. With the launch of the new iPhone 5, they decided to refresh the earbuds as well.
It comes with a travel case, which is probably ideal if you are a frequent traveller or if you like to get things organized.
The shape is pretty unique, don’t you think? According to Apple’s website, their designers created 3D models of various ear types to find a common shape across many different people. That shape led to the unique look of the new Apple EarPods. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphones.
It was also claimed that over 600 people tested the new Apple EarPods during its development. Testers ran on treadmills in extreme heat and extreme cold. They performed various cardio workouts. They were even asked to shake their heads side to side, up and down.
How about sound quality? Apple sound engineers were focused on improving sound quality, which we believe they were successful.
Take a look at the acoustic vents located in the stem of each EarPod. It allows air inside the stem, which acts as an acoustic chamber, to flow out. So you hear deeper, richer bass tones.
Our first impressions are they look good and the deep bass is quite impressive. Hopefully, we can get our hands on the iPhone 5 soon!

Between today and this Sunday, we are commemorating 9/11. We will donate US$1.00 to 911Memorial.org for every sale generated from AT&T iPhone unlock.
Despite being a tiny iPhone repair company located approximately 11,000km (flight length) from New York city, we would like to commemorate 9/11 and we hope that we can make a small contribution to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.
The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in the North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. Architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker created the Memorial design selected from a global design competition that included more than 5,200 entries from 63 nations.
The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.
When you purchase an AT&T iPhone unlock, you will have the option to donate US$1.00; and at the same time your purchase will be discounted as well.
By early next week, we will published the proof of the donation – so do watch this space.
If you already have your AT&T iPhone unlocked but know someone who needs it, please do let them know about this.
Thank you in advance for your help and contribution.

Apparently iOS 5.1.1 has a huge bug and it’s affecting a lot of iPhones out there, mainly the iPhone 4S. If your iPhone is having these symptoms, you can try this fix.
Your iPhone may have some or all of the symptoms below:
- When the volume buttons are pressed on the home screen you get “ringer” and the speaker symbol appear but nothing more (e.g. +/- volume)
- When playing back from iTunes with no headphones in, you get nothing through the internal speakers; the volume buttons don’t work and the volume slider is not visible
- When you open a YouTube video with no headphones plugged in, you don’t hear anythingg through the internal speakers, the volume buttons don’t work and the volume slider is not visible
- With headphones plugged in, sound is audible and volume buttons work
- When using voice mail, (no headphones connected) you can play the message through the speakers and control volume using side buttons
You can try the following fix, which requires your iPhone to be jailbroken first.
1. Jailbreak your iPhone using the latest redsn0w or Absinthe.
2. Download and install iExplorer. It’s available for both Mac and PC. Other alternative is iFile (jailbreak app) which you can run directly on your iPhone, search for it on Cydia.
3. Connect your iPhone to your PC/Mac and launch iExplorer.
4. Within iExplorer (or iFile), on the left column navigate to:
5. On the right column find ‘com.apple.iapd.plist’, right click then select delete.
6. Close iExplorer and reboot the iPhone. This is important. Done!
Do note that removing the com.apple.iapd.plist file may affect accessories that go with apps such as FM transmitters and Nike plus etc. If this doesn’t bother you then proceed!
Or else, wait for iOS 6 which is due for release in the next few days, hopefully this is issue will be resolved.
