Sim cards have changed over the years from the standard large one we are all all custom to and now we are down to a Nano sim which was introduced in 2012, we can thank Apple for.. We have typically have three sim cards today which are standard,Micro and Nano,and of course combo sims which are on offer sometimes.

Apple and Samsung, two of the world’s biggest phone makers, are said to be in “advanced talks” with the GSMA about the launch of these embeddable SIM cards, according to The Financial Times. A SIM card is the tiny piece of plastic in your phone that stores your phone number and info about your data plan and identifies your phone to the carrier.These cards are programmed to work with a specific carrier, which is why you typically need to buy phones specific to the carrier you’re using when shopping for a new device.

This could change things in the future but it probably be a while before it actually happens here in Ireland..You wouldn’t be locked into a two-year contract, because you could switch carriers at will. You’d still have to buy data plans from carriers, but if you’re dissatisfied with the service you could switch next month rather than having to wait out a contract.
