Micro and Nano SIMs are smaller versions of the regular SIM cards. The micro-SIM is a smaller type of SIM that was first used in the iPhone 4 and the Nano SIM is around 40% smaller. Most smartphones will use either of these instead of the traditional SIM.
If you have recently purchased a phone which requires a Micro or Nano SIM a SIM card cutter can be used which cuts the regular SIM to the size required. A SIM adapter can also be used if you need to put a smaller SIM into a phone which requires a larger SIM.

You can normally increase your tariff at any time, but lowering it will depend on when your contract started, and how long you've been on your current tariff. You may be required to pay off the remainder of your current contract (what you agreed to pay each month, multiplied by how long you have left on it), before you can begin a new one.
If you change your tariff it will take effect from the date your monthly allowance is allocated.
