    Default iPhone 5 nano sim in jailbroken 3GS?

    Probably a dumb question but I just upgraded to an iPhone 5 from a jailbroken 3GS. I only really use the jailbreak for tethering when I am at my cabin. Can I take the sim out of my iPhone 5, put it in an adapter and use it in my old jailbroken 3GS so that I can still tether?

    Not really a jailbreak question, but yes you can.

    Just grab an adapter from eBay - they are really cheap. I myself used to use a micro sim in my 3GS.

    Note: Just make sure you get a nano sim adapter and not a micro sim.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).

    Thanks. Wasn't really sure where to post this question. Since I specifically wanted to know if the jailbreak would still work with the nano sim, I figured here was the best spot. Thanks again. Adapter ordered. Didn't realize they were so cheap.

    Yep, got one myself to use my nano sim in both my iPhone 5 nd my Galaxy Nexus, they work like a charm.

    Yup the data sharing is from the jb device so whatever signal that 3GS gets can share
