Re: Changing phone swapping sim size

Hi Woody65

To activate the sim

FROM THE OLD PHONE AND SIM,

1. Create a text message
2. To the sender type in 789678
3. the message content as : READY

You will receive a text back saying the request has been successful

The new SIM card is just a SIM only . The number is governed by us anyway so its automatically the same number when we do a sim replacement

hope this helps Smiley Happy
