so far only the iphone 5 uses nano, and its not released in taiwan, so there's no nano sims around lol.
fyu is saying to cut the sim card with scissors to fit the slot... im sure it fit that way...

I wouldnt talk to an normal sprint csr if you pulled my nails out. I said : "connect me to the international department" and the people who specifically handled this took care of it.

I know this is an old thread but has anyone tried getting Sprint to unlock a bad ESN iPhone 5? I'm a longtime customer for almost 10 years (thanks SERO) but my gf wants to use an iPhone when we travel. So I was thinking of going on Craigslist to get one for cheap. Thanks in advance everyone.

sprint won't do anything for Bad ESN as bad ESN = Stolen/lost/Warranty replacement

For the 1st 2 its obvious, for the 3rd its technically property of sprint/insurance company.
When you warranty claim a phone, you're obligated to mail it back to carrier/insurance company.

For example, my father thought he lost his Incredible, asurion had verizon Ban the ESN and sent him a replacement phone.
We found his phone 2 months later, called back verizon who told us the phone's technically property of Asurion and to send the phone back to Asurion.
When we asked if we could reactivate the found phone and send the replacement back (as the replacement was a refurb) they said no as the time lapse has been too long.

I am hopng someone can tell me how can i unlock my iphone FAST. the carrier is AT&T, thanks
If you have an iPhone 5 that you bought full price, restore it in iTunes for the quickest full unlock around, all for free.
Otherwise, you'll have to settle for jailbreaking your iPhone and installing an unlock software like ultrasn0w.
