  • Sparkfun, are there plans to stock a mini/nano sim card ever? I think most phone MFR's have switched, my iphone 4s is a micro. People want this, I want it. Newark has one but only 3 left in-stock.|pcrid|27090073341|plid|

    • Our product researcher has been looking into several different options, but I'm not sure what the status is on that. My guess is eventually we will. I'll pass along your comment though :)

      • Toni, thanks for the response. A nice quick fix I used was to buy a nano/micro SIM adapter from ebay. These can be had for around $2.

        • Definitely something we can also look into. Thanks for updating us on your workaround!

    Just out of curiosity, what's the ETA on more stock for this SIM Socket?

    If it won't be stocked any more, would you guys happen to have a digikey part number for something with the same footprint?

    3/27/2012 Two pins are missing from the SIM Adapter. If I pay extra, can I get the missing pins? You probably have to buy two SIM Sockets, pull two pins from one, and install them in the other. (sales tactic)

      ... Or a defect part. No need to jump to conclusions. Contact SFE support for a new one.

    That's just mechanical datasheet, Where can I find the pin functions?
