Can you not buy a SIM card reader, and copy the details from one SIM to another??

Plenty of them on E-Bay, some which specifically say, 'copy data from one SIM card to another' ??

 

Google 'sim card reader' and see how many results you get.

All that you need is a PC and the dongle/software. Copy data from first SIM to PC, then copy from PC  back to second SIM.

 

If you want a link, PM me, as don't think links are allowed on the forum from what I remember Smiley Happy

Hey Kev1nH,

 

Thanks for posting and a warm welcome to the community Smiley Very Happy

 

I'm sorry but we're unable to transfer data from one SIM to another at the moment. Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you. 

 

If there is anything else we can help you with, please let us know. 

 

Thanks again, 

Take care.

Thanks for your reply. Just one other thing, when I return to the UK can I use a UK Virgin SIM in the phone I've bought in the US?
