Apple’s iPhone 5 became available in some parts of the world over the weekend and it was already expected that a lot of Filipinos will somehow get this latest Apple product before it gets here. Most likely, these people sourced their iPhone 5 from Hong Kong and Singapore.
To supplement their purchase, Globe has released their nano-SIMs in the market over the weekend well ahead of their official iPhone 5 launch. Aside from the having a taller form, the iPhone 5 also makes use of the smaller nano-SIM card which is 40% smaller than the micro-SIM. It’s the only phone to make use of the new SIM standard as of the moment.
Globe is offering the nano-SIM for free to new postpaid subscribers and existing postpaid subscribers as replacement. For prepaid subscribers, all you can do is get a new nano-SIM for Php40.
