Cut down SIM issue

Any else having issues with their cut down SIM. I've cut my Orange SIM down using a template bought off the internet but when i install it the phone tells me that there isn't a SIM inserted. Anyone shed any light on this. Not even sure if the card is inserted correctly.:lease:

Switch the phone off then back on whilst sim is inserted

Makes no difference mate:confused:.
I've noticed that the SIM has 4 contact marks/lines where it was inserted/removed from my old phone but only 3 are visible when its inserted into the sim carrier.

You have cut it so the sim contacts are facing down?

just cut my old payg sim that i got when i bought my old 3G iphone and it works fine.
Noticed that the payg gold contact area on the sim is much smaller than the one on contract sim i want to use. any ideas.

Yeah i know what you mean, i seen the same thing on a t-mobile payandgo and contact one, on my contract sim i had to cut all the way round the gold contacts, have you done the same? maybe you cut into the sim card?

No I haven't cut into the sim. Don't want to trim it all the way down in case it falls through the sim holder.
