I have very old phone which uses Vodafone miniSIM card. How do I exchange it for nano/micro-SIM with adaptor so that I can use this SIM card in both my old phone and any new phone that I buy?

Go to vodafone store, say that you need to replace as 4g sim. They will replace it for free (local shop dealers will ask 20-50 rs)
They will give you a new sim and a sms format which you need to send from your old sim card..
You will receive a msg from vodafone that expected time to change your new sim
On that time your old sim card will loose its tower and you need to insert new sim and it will get activated.
(New sim can be used as mini/micro/nano type.. so no issues)

You never kept any of the adapters from other SIM’s you got? Look on the ground outside sim stores.. You will find a bunch of them people throw out. They all pretty much fit each other. I move around all 3 sizes often and keep a bunch of spares around. Found a bunch rummaging outside the store at night looking for a place to sleep… hushed

No, I never kept those adapters + i dont know how to cut the big sim into small sim myself.

And What is the story of a superb english speaking all-knowing philosopher sleeping outside near random shops?

You need an adapter to mark the outline to cut them and then fix it into that slot.. I was using one like that for a long time because it did not fit into the new phone. Then I had to go back to using the old phone and I had to find an adapter.. So I went to the idea store and they were closed.. So I acted like I was cleaning up a place for me to sleep and found a bunch of them people throw away after they take the nano sim out of it. Just use good scissors to cut it and cut straight. You could get a new SIM since the old ones were 16MB or 32MB and did not hold as many contacts etc. The new SIM also means your SIM registration number also changes. Some banks use that to lock your sim to your account. That way someone cant get your number and act like its you. The SIM itself has to be the same and not just your phone number.
