    Are Nano SIM cards available in Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos for my new ipad and iphone?

    Not that I've seen - generally the shops just cut then down in size with a card cutter.

    Greetings somtam - thank you for your response. You said "not that you've seen" regarding nano SIM cards, just checking how recent your experience is. I know technology is changing fast and I'm wondering what countries you've been to and when. Also, there was another response to my question and it's no longer here. Do you recall the name of the international phone/data provider that was recommended? Are you familiar with that? Thx

    Can anyone attest to the availability of card cutters in the region? Will there be a nano sim card trimmer anywhere sim cards are sold? Trying to find out if I should be bringing my own...

    I've had them cut down in Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Yangon and Bangkok -- all in the last six months - each time they just cut down a regular card. The other response was spam so was deleted.

    @cbg0927 - yes any decent sim place will have a card cutter - no need to bring your own.
