Straight Talk insists I have to go with AT&T on the Nexus 4 because of the micro SIM slot on the phone. When I ask them if I can't just cut down the regular T-Mobile SIM, I get no response. Surely this would work, wouldn't it?
I would use T-Mobile because you will get faster data speed if in a HSPA+42 area and when they activate their LTE it will be compatible with the nexus 4. I'm using my nexus 4 on att Sim right now but I am going to be switching to the T-Mobile Sim when my service is due.
Coverage = AT&T
Speed = T-Mobile
Yes, for some of you the opposite is true. This is the general rule.

If you use Google Voice, you want the AT&T SIM as T-mobile's prepaid SIMs do not allow conditional call forwarding.

If you have a fairly steady hand, using a free template and scissors/xacto type knife is fairly easy. I cut down a TMO sim and finished it off with GF's nail file... The contact area is large enough to allow for a decent margin of error, so don't be too paranoid (I was and breathed a huge sigh of relief when it worked). Just make sure to err on the side of it being too large after the first cut, then trim it down from there. +1 for Going with TMO if the coverage works for you. I switched from the tmo sim to att and my speeds were halved; though I will say real world speeds for what I do seem to be the same.
I too got a launch date N4 and used an Ebay sim punch with no issues.
Your's is on the way, I hope.
