You can cut it. There are templates on ebay and amazon. Or you can order a sim adapter and ask your carrier for a nano sim and then use it in any slot. Using a nano in my Galaxy S4 now. Was swapping back and forth with an iPhone 5 until I sold it on Craigslist last week.

Just walk in (to AT&T) and ask for a nano sim?

Yup. They might charge you may be $10 or something but they should do it for you.

Well, the HTC One M8 is launching today. So I think by the end of the day I'll either know if I'm going to get it, the S5, or buy a used phone and hold out for the LG G3, etc.

Wow, the M8 looks pretty slick. I love the duo camera. The internals seem to be nearly the same. HTC gets the edge on the outside with a 90% metal chassis. the S5 gets the nod in the water/dust resistant features. I need to decide what I'd rather have.

The upcoming Amazon Kindle Phone has six cameras. The two you'd normally think of and an extra 4 for gesture recognition.

Yeah, the HTC One M8 has a lot of gesture control in the "Sense" functionality.

Just pulled the trigger on the Galaxy S5. If the HTC One M8 had a removable battery, that would have sold me. I have battery issues seemingly with every phone and the ability to swap it out just by removing the cover is something I really like.

Is that from a 1985 Archie McPhee catalog?

How much did you pay for it with the new contract?

I might be thinking of another poster but I feel like you've had a million phones in the past year or two.

Must be another. I've had a Galaxy S2 Skyrocket since March '12, and when it broke around Christmas I've been using an iPhone 3G. I often talked about buying another one but never did.

Anyone use Ting.com? It looks interesting, except for the fact that it uses Sprint's network which has limited to no 4G LTE in our area.

First thoughts on GS5, its huge. I have trouble stretching my thumb to the opposite corners. It's lightning fast. The camera has a ton of features that I have no idea what they do. Fingerprint reading is OK its just not intuitive to using your thumb because of the placement of the sensor and the need to swipe perfectly vertical.

Sold my iPhone 5 and iPad to essentially pay off my wife's Note 3 and get my daughter a chrome book and it came to almost a wash.

After quitting iOS cold turkey I quickly got used to the size of the S4. Not sure if I'll get the S5 since T-Mobile just upgraded my area to LTE which I can get on my Verizon Galaxy S4 with no rooting after the KitKat update.

Sweet. Got an update on my S3 this morning and now my power button appears to work normally again. Not sure why, but I'm not complaining.

S4 to S5 isn't a huge upgrade from what I've heard. But I love my S5.

I got the S3 update from Verizon this morning as well, but no update on VZW's support site. Nothing (yet) on the interwebs, and it says I'm still running Android 4.3.

I've heard great things about it. Due for an upgrade now, not sure what I'm getting though an S5 or HTC 1.

I researched these two both rather extensively. The HTC One has metal finish, cooler camera, front facing speakers. The GS5 was waterproof, removable battery, and better camera.

There are things I like about both phones, but I'm leaning towards the S5 because of the more powerful battery
