Nano-SIM, Micro-SIM and Mini-SIM cards

You need different size SIM cards depending on your mobile phone or device

nano SIM card


The smallest SIM card available is the Nano-SIM, which measures 12.3 × 8.8 × 0.67 mm. Most of the latest devices use a Nano-SIM format.

If you have a new device and need a Nano-SIM to use it, we can help. Visit us in store - we can also help to transfer your contacts.

To ensure you get the correct size SIM, we’ve combined the Standard SIM (Mini-SIM), the Micro-SIM and Nano-SIM into one - it's called the Triple SIM.

SIM stands for Subscriber Identification Module.

Micro SIM card


If your phone needs a Micro-SIM, just pop the smaller sized part of the Multi-SIM out, then place it in your phone.

The Micro-SIM measures 15 x 12 x 0.76mm.

Standard or mini SIM card

Standard SIM (Mini-SIM)

If your phone takes a standard size SIM you don’t need to do anything - just place the SIM card straight into your mobile phone.

The Standard or Mini-SIM (also known as 2FF) measures 25 x 15 x 0.76 mm


Switch SIM size and keep your number

You can keep your number when you move to a new SIM card. If you purchase a new mobile phone through our online shop, call 777 or visit a Vodafone store once you receive your phone and new SIM card to swap your mobile number onto your new SIM.

Once you complete your SIM swap, your old SIM will be deactivated, so you won’t be able to use it again. Make sure you have your mobile phone and your new SIM before you request your mobile number to be transferred.
