Place the rebels micro on the sim adapter as shown on the blog pictures

Place your thumb on on top of the rebel and you will feel the springs on the pro sim adapters push down as you apply more pressure.

Make sure the rebel pro programmer has been plugged on to the USB port of the PCB and let it install the drivers itself using windows update and is the best way to let them auto configure.

Now Slide the green Pro sim adapter in to the pro programmer and run the software after you downloaded it and press Write Card. Card Takes about 30 seconds to program & If it does not show its programming or is writing to fast then thier is a connection error.

Remove the adapter and plug back in to the pro programmer and try agian and if still does not program then check the postion of the rebel micro sims on the adapter or use your thumb to apply more pressure to make a better connection.

When ever you plug the pro sim adapter in and then out of the readers the light will flash and then stay on. On Windows 7 systems when you plug the adapter in the reader you will see a message saying updating drivers and hear a noise alert.You can ignore this message and proceed by pressing write firmware as normal and this is a sign for you that the boot programming mode was found when you plugged the card in to the reader

The Rebel Simcard Team Are Happy To announce the Completion of a secret project code named Appleusersmicrobrain.

Dont be fooled in to thinking this is to do with Neural Networks and Mind games or artificial intelligance. The code name implies any one who owns or wants to own Apple products posses’s a micro sized brain and enjoys throwing thier good money down the gutter.

This codename gave the Rebel Simcard Team members who worked on the project a great incentive as they knew they would be saving users around the world a lot of money by providing an easy option to use their existing Mini network Simcards and convert them to the Micro Sim Format.

Why should Apple Expect you to resort to taking out yet another Contract for Voice and Data & have to obtain a Micro simcard to use with the New Breed of its Devices like the iphone 4 & ipad.

You most probably already are on a good deal already with your network provider and most users will  not be near the contract completion date either so will not be eligible for good priced upgrades to iphone 4 or ipads.

User on the Pay as u Go Mobile Virtual Network operators and want to keep you same sim and Voice/Data plans and your their network operators will still be in the early stages of rolling  supplies of  micro sims.

What’s the difference between a SIM and a micro-SIM?

Like a regular SIM, the micro-SIM holds your subscriber information for the carrier and is great for storing
iphone 4gphone book contacts and other personal information. Micro-SIMs are user-replaceable and slide into a little slot in your device just like regular SIMs.

The micro-SIM is a smaller version of a SIM card found in your mobile phone, but holds exactly the same functions and micro-applications. The size of the micro-SIM is about a half of a regular SIM card (12×15 mm instead of 15x25mm). Though it contains the same information, it is not physically compatible with regular SIM cards found in your mobile phone.

A micro-SIM is basically smaller than a normal SIM card like you have and will only work in an iPad or iphone 4 and a watch phone by Lok8u,.

You can see from the images below and see the sim is much smaller than normal but the inner workings of the sim chip are the same with only small modifications that will be further explained down below in the article.

Should i use Scissors or a Knife or Blade to Cut my Sim to Micro Sim Format to use in ipad or Apple 4 ?

Not so Fast as thier was some news in today from Apple that might put a damper on your plans to save yourself a Wad of Notes. It would be reckless to consider taking a pair of scissors to cut the plastic of a regular SIM cards to make a micro-SIM. Anyone who would attempt to do so would risk damaging both their SIM and also the SIM slot of the device but its possible with some Skill.

A better option would be to contact your carrier to get a micro-SIM card or if you do want to convert a normal sim to a micro sim use the Micro sim Cutter Option and if you need to convert your micro sim back to normal you can also use micro sim adapters..

Why Apple Moved to the New Micro Sim Format.

Apple have learnt from previous sim unlock hacks via Sim Overlay Technology from the likes of Rebel Simcard for unlocking, Call  Control Least Cost routing and the use of Double Sim Adapters and have gone to micro Sim format to do their best to block out the possibility of future hacks. Changing down to the micro format so that they can make it much harder to fit Gadgets inside the iphone 4 or ipad sim gates.




Another reason Apple moved to the new format was a smart marketing technique. Their is nothing new about the micro sim other than the change of size and apple know this would be good talking point for others to create more talk and publicity around their products and people will percieve also the micro sim is special for apple products or even made by them.

The micro sim was first used by Lok8u, they were the first to ship a micro-SIM product in the United States — a watch that relays the location of children from their wrists to their parents’ cellphones.Jobs Got in Second on the Act here but will claim the Glory and portray this as Apples invention too.

Today’s News Puts a Damper on the Hopes of People wanting to use their existing network Simcard on the Apple Ipad

Apple has added a section to its iPhone FAQ confirming that you won’t be able to use one Micros SIM in both the smartphone and the Apple iPad.

Thousands off people who don’t want to Sign up to New 2 Year  Contracts from Carriers planned to buy an Ipad  Sim Free and use their Existing Simcards which have free or cheap internet packages by converting then by cutting them self or through the of micro sim cuttings tools have had their Plans blown out of the window for Now with the new announcement.

The official line on this from UK O2 is “The micro-SIMs for the iPhone are set up to allow voice calls, SMS messages and data functionality, whereas the iPad micro-SIM is provisioned to allow pay-as-you-go data transfer only.”

“The two devices are designed to give a different experience. The iPhone 4 is for regular use, whereas with the iPad we offer moreflexibility over data use.”

Makes perfect business sense from Apple’s point of view, but seems a riff off as the Device is Purchased Sim Free and such Restrictions should not be placed. This means we need to have two monthly data plans if we want 3G mobile browsing.

The two types of Micro Sim card for Apple ipad & Iphone 4 Explained and Can you use if you convert you existing sims to micro sim format.

Most networks around the world sell 2 types of network simcard.

  1. Voice & Data Enabled Simcard where you can Make Calls and also Use to Surf the Net. This is the most common type of simcard around the world and is same as what we find in mobile phones and phones like Iphone 3G 3G 3GS.
  2. Data Only Simcard Where you cant make Calls but Can use to surf the Net Only. This type of network simcard is quite new and only few years old & can only be used in devices who primary function is to supply Data only Services and you will already find these kinds of simcards in devices like data dongle & Mifi Devices and often are bundled in to deals with Laptops that are sold with internal wireless GPRS EDGE 3G Modems.

If you already have a Good mobile contract Deal with Free Data allowance this Leaves you with the Following options if you convert you network sim to micro format and buy a Sim Free iphone 4 or Ipad 3G.

*To be confirmed by our guess is Yes but for Data Only and not voice

UK Mobile Networks and thier offerings for Micro Sims

Rival networks OrangeVodafone and 3 are all offering customers the chance to pre-order the Micro SIMs needed to use the iPad’s 3G capabilities

The UK O2 network is offering its daily tariff (£2 per day for 500MB) but users need to wait for Friday before they can order their SIM.
