A client paid me today to set up a custom domain for his Blogger blog. I registered the domain name, created the normal CNAME (ghs.google.com) and created four separate A-records which point to four different Google IPs. (184.108.40.206; 220.127.116.11; 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124). After I confirmed that the DNS servers have been updated, I decided to add the custom domain to the blog's settings but to my surprise, the settings FAILED to save.
The iPhone 5 uses the Nano SIM card, which is smaller than the Micro SIM and SIM cards found in the iPhone 4S and other phones.

Well, you can buy a Nano SIM card for your iPhone 5.
