    The real trick is finding a nano sim card where this phone was sold to me just days ago. They don’t carry it and couldn’t even tell me where to get one!

      Most handphone shops can cut it for you. You can also trim it by yourself by downloading and print the template.

    I do have a problem in my moto x. It gets disconnected often from network, even when the sim is inside. I need to turn of my mobile, for getting the network back. That too, this trick works only few times. I am really disappointed of this, as the device works great in other things except from sim issue. Can anyone suggeste me ,wat to do for this.

      It sounds like the connector is not good (or maybe it is just dirty). You should ask Motorola service staff to check or fix it.

      You can Google it. Get a PDF file with guiding lines. When printing, you need make sure it is printed on correct paper size. Before trimming, you mad make sure your existing card fits the guiding lines exactly.

      Anyway, all handphone shops now have the special tool to trim it. Most will do it for you for free.
