I can't upgrade until I use up all the microSIMs in the stack. I'm stuck with my Nexus 5.

They are prefunded SIMs so as long as I port-in/port-out every month can just pay the "first month" rate instead of the full monthly fee.

It means I pay about <$50/year in phone costs. Sometimes they hand prefunded SIMs out or sell them for $1 each.

If I were to stop buying SIM cards today, I would have enough to last until 11 July 2023.

This works for me since porting is free in Australia, so I keep the same ph number always.

All I have to do is tell them my previous number + provide ID.

Yes I have a nanoSIM cutter. I briefly had a Nexus 5X handed down to me, but they break if I trim them. My Nexus 5 is a nightmare.
