If your SIM has a small contacts area, then it might be possible to cut it to micro SIM size. But if contacts are larger, and would touch the edges, or even be partially cut off by cutting it, you may destroy your phone by doing it.

I don't know how much your telecom charges for it, but here it's either free (in most cases) or if there is a charge it's like 1-1.5$ for a new SIM.

[deleted post]Be careful with this phone in India. Check what LTE band your telecoms are using and make sure this phone supports it.

A500KL is for EMEA market, so Europe, Middle East and Africa, and if your operators don't use same standards as these territories, your phone might not work on 4G networks in India.

Hey Tomazz... Plz tell me what is the difference between
Asus Zenfone 5 A500KL and Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG ??

This is a great phone for its price. Camera is not that bad when you are in a good light condition apparently when capturing a dark area wherein you can't see anything it will give you a huge disappointment. The graphics are great though.

celestina, 01 Sep 2014Hi In 1 of yr reply to reader you mentioned to resolve problem ... moreTo check current firmware, tap Settings, then About (last one) and then System Update (first one).

To update, tap on CHECK UPDATE.

Alternatively, download 1.17.40 from Asus support site or my site (if your phone is having WW firmware), and unzip the file, then plug the phone to your computer and place that unzipped file to your root folder of the phone's internal memory.

Note your phone must be set to MTP. To check, open Settings, then tap on STORAGE, then on the USB logo top right of the screen. Enable MEDIA DEVICE (MTP) and NOT Camera device.

Anyway, once you've copied it, unplug the cable, scroll down notifications (from left top corner scroll down), tap on New update is available, and install it.
