    I arrived home around 12:30 and my phone was already here so I cut down my Note 4's Micro-SIM to Nano-SIM size. I taped the card to a template, used a very sharp wood chisel to ensure straight cuts and sanded the corners with 600-grit sandpaper on a block. It fits

    My 6p also connected to Big Brother's network almost immediately upon initial bootup.

    Thanks for the info!!

    Dude, I used scissors and didn't worry about sanding or anything. Way to step it up a notch. Just kept snipping until it fit snugly in the tray. Glad someone else had the guts to give it a go though! Congrats! Haha!

    I admit I was a bit hesitant as I couldn't put the card back in my Note 4 if I messed anything up but it wasn't even a five minute job. The video I watched was for an iPhone and that guy had to sand his card thinner to fit in the tray. I'm glad I didn't need to do that for the 6p. Cutting the sides down and rounding the corners worked like a charm.

    I hear ya. Every time the scissors closed I thought, "Ok. Did I eff it up THIS time?", but I just took my time with it and took a little bit off at a time, got it close to right, then used the tray as my finishing guide, like I said. Didn't take long at all, like you said.

    Am I the only one who's data went to ****? Emails wouldn't send, messages weren't coming through. ..no Internet but it shows full 4G connection to VZW. I ordered another phone since I forgot to add coverage and you can't add it afterwards, so I'll see if the phone was the issue. I'm so pissed. Never seen anything like this with my Note 5

    Sorry to hear that, that's no good. Mine has not had one issue with signals. In fact, I think it's the best phone I've had in that department.

    Wouldn't that be covered under the warranty?

    I have a new phone in my possession. Will be doing set up and report back once fully tested. I think DE and PA region is having network issues though. My Note 5 had the same problems all day. Frustrating, but thanks guys.

    OK, so activated the new device and same issue...so I called Verizon. They pretended network was perfect until I explained my friends have the same issue. Fast forward to present day and phone works.

    I love it, however, I get this nagging feeling that my Note 5 camera is better.

    I know that I'm late (VERY late!) to the 6P party, but I just ordered mine yesterday, along with some nifty accessories from eBay. I'm trading up from my Droid Maxx (on Verizon), which I believe already has a nano sim... so I shouldn't have any problems (fingers crossed!)
