Nano Sim Holder

Hey All. I'm looking for a nano sim card holder that can hold a few sims, and is small. What are people's recommendations? Is the holder from mishu the way to go?

Thanks,
--IslesFan

I got one of these:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Not sure how long it will stay sticky. There's another one under another brand which is $20 but they look to be the same thing.

It's not too small that it would be easy to lose but still light and thin. Not enough for your whole collection but should be good for a trip.

The ghetto and almost-free solution? Buy a pack of Listerine breath strips. Enjoy fresh breath. Now enjoy the packaging... perfect to hold 4-6 sims, micro SD cards or whatever you need.

I just use the plastic holders that memory cards came in; I've got a bunch running all the way back to full size PCMCIA and all the way down to microSD with the largest bunch being SD-card sized (since most microSD come with an adapter, even today.)

Work great for holding SIMs of any size, and the small microSD-only size ones are particularly nice and thin, will hold 2-4 microSIM cards without a lot of rattling.

If you've bought many memory cards, this is free. Probably not worth it to buy separately (e.g. http://www.amazon.com/Bluecell-Plast...=micro+sd+case although the specific style there isn't as micro/nano-SIM-card friendly as the wider/squarer one that the last Sandisk cards I bought came in.

I'd prefer something that's one package, not microsd holders(although it's tempting). I'd rather not do the listerine package. The perixx holder looks like what I'm gonna go with unless I find something different or someone else points me to something.

Thanks for the opinions so far.

My concern is that it's a micro sim holder, not nano sim.

FWIW, the microsd shipping cases can hold more than one microsim, and the thinner ones for microsd card without an adapter are small enough to sit comfortably in my wallet without feeling noticeably thicker.

The sim cards will rattle around on each other, but there isn't a terrible risk of either static, or mechanical damage.

You mean the one that was on Kickstarter? I've had it since then and it's still plenty sticky. I feel like I might break my SD cards pulling them off after having them sit there for a while.

For Nano size, the only way to go!

Too afraid that your SIMs will smell minty fresh?

Has anyone had any luck with nano sim cutters?

I bought one off Amazon and cut an old SIM as a test but it is either still too large or the edges are bent down/up or both.

If you have an iphone, Simon is back with this combination iphone Simplcase/sim card holder:

The cheaper, but less elegant solution is to just tape them inside one of these cases:

The more expensive holder looks pretty good actually. Comes with a sim tray holder and some slots for nano sim cards. Can be worth it for those who travel in and out of 2 or more countries frequently.
