The SIM ( Subscriber Identity Module ) that are generally of following types:-

1. Full size SIM - Full size sim has their size like a credit card. They are of rectangular shape. The Registration number that we got for our Vehicle is a full sized sim .

2. Mini SIM - Mini sim is derived from the Full size sim but it is only of dimensions 25x15 mm. This are that we often use in our mobile.

4. Nano SIM-Nano sim only contain the circuit part means the boundary of sim is limited to the size of the circuit.
