Apple products use a Micro SIM, which is a smaller than usual phone chip. Most places you buy such a card. In Sri Lanka, this is not how we do. Dudes at some communication kades just take a normal SIM and chomp it through the cutter. Then they trim it down with a box cutter. Like a baas.
Thing is, not ever com-kade has these things. Hutch sells some Micro SIMs on the street but A) Hutch? and B) you can’t predict where. I walked around for like 20 minutes trying various places till I went to the half-perch across from Unity Plaza. They had the service but charged me Rs. 250 without blinking. It’s like getting someone to staple something. But whatever. He didn’t even cut it straight but it works.
So that’s how to get a Micro SIM in Sri Lanka.
