It's free. I just did it with DTAC. I was a bit puzzled when they gave a full size SIM until I realized you can just press out the required size: micro or nano.
Yes, already have 2 phones with those adapters, but my old Sim card is a Micro, so nothing to push out.
Not an adapter. It's how the SIMs are provided. You easily press out the micro or nano size as required. Or leave it full size.
So what do you call it? :? As far as I know, but just being an engineer probably does not help, but when you wish to plug some part into another part that is a different size, but has the same function, an Adapter IS USED!

The SIM cards you buy today effectively come as a 3in1, so you choose the size that fits your phone (L,M,S), but if your previous phone and SIM card are a few years old then the SIM card may be just a one size for that particular phone.

I call it a full size SIM card that you can easily break down to be a micro SIM or a nano SIM by pushing the smaller part out of the original large SIM. Your old micro was probably purchased before nano SIMs were widely used. Now you just get an original size SIM card breakable into the other 2 SMALLER sizes as required. Just go and change your SIM then you should understand.

I don't need you to tell me how to understand anything! The fact is if I have a Nano Sim and need to put it in a phone that only accepts a Micro Sim, then I need an ADAPTER! I already posted that I have a couple of Sim cards that include break off sections, BUT the Sim that I have is a MICRO, so it DOES NOT HAVE a break off section to fit into a NANO slot!


But then you know that don't you?

@Nereus I understood that you had a new phone that takes a nano SIM card. I couldn't understand why you mentioned adapters in the context of going from micro to nano and new SIMs catering for all 3 sizes. So, sorry I apparently misunderstood.

Calling all Xiaomi phone users!

Post by thecolonel » Fri Oct 05, 2018 4:56 pm

I'm sure I've seen people on here talking about Xiaomi phones but now I can't find!

Anyway my battery in my redmi note 4x is starting to flag, I'm coming to HH in early Nov and I could wait till then but is there a little shop who can do this?

It's not a simple job like other phones, it's far from easy. I've seen on YouTube, it can be done but think by someone whos experienced /trained.

I'm obviously aware of all those kiosks in MV but last year none of them even had a cover for a xiaomi phone!

Maybe buy the battery here in UK and fit in HH?

Any ideas welcome(wouldn't know where to start in UK!)

Thanks

From the top end of the night market along the train tracks towards the crossing there are loads of small independent phone guys. I bet if you were to walk along there someone would be able to sort you out cheaply. If in doubt, you could bring your own battery, but airlines are getting a bit funny about that now!

You can probably get the right battery online (shopee thailand has both redmi note 4 and note 4x batteries) and then one of the repair shops will help fit to the phone. You should open the phone to make sure of the battery number before ordering.

Google Pixel 3 phones launch

The Pixel 3 handsets introduce new photography features including a much higher-quality digital zoom than before.
The company suggests the innovation shows it has no need to place more than one camera on the handsets' rear......

......The Pixel 3 starts at £739 - slightly less than the iPhone XR - while the Pixel 3 XL starts at £869 - slightly more than Samsung's Galaxy Note 9. They will be released in the US next week, and Europe at the start of November......

There is shop on top floor of MV called “IBIZ” (next to Samsung) that actually has several Xiaomi phones on display for sale.
I bought one - it was about 100 Baht more than on Lazada, but no back cover available there or anywhere in MV (I bought one easily in Kuala Lumpur this week).
If you’re in MV, maybe “IBIZ” could advise on the replacement battery?

I just got myself a Oneplus 6 , it has same cpu and ram as a note 9,
screen resolution is not quite as sharp as a note 9, but the screen is made by samsung for this company,
it has some serious firepower and along with Mi Mix 2S , it matches the big brands for sheer power,

If your willing to look away from samsung and Apple, Oneplus6 and Mi Mix 2S offer same specs for 50% of the price

The absolutely best Android phone on the market now is Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Just launched on October 16th. I guess it could take a few weeks before it is available in Hua Hin though.
