Hi metadave,

 

you can to send the text READY to 789678 from your old phone & SIM.

You should then receive a text back saying the request has been successful.

Or you can sign in to My Account /Activate then follow the links to "My tariffs and devices" &  click "Activate".

Your old SIM will deactivate and some time after your new SIM will become active.

(Periodically turn your new phone off and on to check for network).

Occasionally activation may take upto 24 hours.
