new mobile contract + phone but keeping old number
Im looking to get a new handset on contract (im currently on PAYG with an old handset). My current phone has a regular sim card, the new one im looking at getting takes a nano sim. My question is how could I keep the same number without hassle?
My hubby had a right faff about when he got his last contract phone as they sent a new sim out with it, when he called up to transfer his number over he ended up having to send the entire handset and sim back and getting a new handset, minus sim, sent back to him. After about 6mths we noticed that the sim we'd returned had still been getting billed every month and there was a long phonecall to convince them we didn't have the sim and weren't trying to scam them out of refunding the money (despite the sim showing that no calls, texts or data had ever been used on it). I just don't want all this hassle again.
