I am about to go a new phone (Christmas is coming! Yay!!) that will use a nano sim. My old phone has a micro SIM. Can I just go to Telcel and ask for a new size (nano) SIM with my old number on it? If yes, can I do it at one of the small outlets? (Not very fond of the big one on the libriamiento)

They can cut down your micro sim so it will work in the nano sim slot. You can even do it yourself. It is quite easy. There are lots of instructions on Google.

Just in case ..... mine stopped working after almost 5 years.  Had to go to Telcel in Manzanillo and for 100 pesos they programmed a new one

The little Telcel tienda across from the El Torito parking garage has a cutter and did mine for like 20 pesos. Very nice woman, speaks English also.
