the carriers are starting to get these in now, I'm guessing they'll be like these AT&T ones so one model will suit both http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/att-launch ... 9-04-2010/

I would also like to know whether Exetel has plans to issue and support micro sims. Both the iPad and (so it is rumoured) the next version of the iPhone - due next month - need them.

I asked both Sales and Tech Support and they had no information about Exetel's plans - any help please?

Will be bold if I need to :)

But would much prefer a genuine micro-SIM format :)

(BTW travelling in the US and just got my iPad 3G this afternoon :)

Fantastic!

The iPad was great traveling around the US with AT&T coverage. Looking forward to getting it set up with Exetel here.

<BUMP> Any update on this now that the iPhones are actually out and selling?

Apple have announced that the outright RRP buy price for the 16Gb model is $869:
http://www.macworld.com.au/news/apple-c ... ing-13527/
From the press release:
“Pricing & Availability
iPhone 4 will be available for outright purchase for a recommended retail price starting from AUD$859 inc GST through Apple’s online store (http://www.apple.com/au/store), Apple’s retail stores and select Apple Authorised Resellers (http://www.apple.com/au/buy). A new iPhone 3GS 8GB model will be available for outright purchase for just AUD$719 inc GST. iPhone 4 will roll out to many more countries later this year and Apple will announce availability and local pricing for these additional countries at a later date.”
This thread is asking the same question:

At this moment there is no fixed date to release Micro SIM cards. But we wish to release Micro SIM cards in near future (No ETA). Please check Exetel web site (www.exetel.com.au) regularly for more updates or the forum.
