    Back to the drawing board about the Moto E4, https://www.motorola.com/us/carrier-compatibility
    device is compatible with service provider’s network but some service provider specific features may not be available.
    LOTS of .itching about LTE not working, for example: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/MOTO-E-...T/td-p/3730867

    If it needs a nano SIM, I would not trim because nano SIMs are thinner than the other SIMs and you risk damaging the phone with a trimmed fatter SIM .
    I personally don't believe the thickness is an issue, we're only talking about .003" difference.

    I did notice that on some SIMs the contact patch is .200" longer(left)and trimming it will cut into the contact patch which may damage the SIM altogether.

    I can see and feel the difference in thickness and its not worth damaging a phone worth hundreds. There are plenty of stories about phones damaged due trimming SIMs that people can research.

    I'm curious if they are of different manufacturing dates?
    The one on the right looks like it could be punched out/trimmed to nano?

    Both pictures show standard/micro (punched out) as labeled. Nano is a separate SIM by itself in this old style kit. Nano SIMs are specd 15% thinner than the larger sized SIMs.
