Getting a new Micro sim

Can I buy a new microsim (I'm on a contract) but I've given my handset to to my daughter and have brought a new phone to tide me over until my contract end. Didn't give a thought to the fact my sim might not fit the new phone :0

I believe you should be able to get one free from Virgin (assuming you can get through on the 789 number....).

 

If you get the overseas call centre though they want to charge you £5 per SIM.

Re: Getting a new Micro sim

As above phone 789 & ask for a replacement sim in the size you want for your current number. As said depending  who answers they might try to charge £5, there is an optional £2.99 for next day delivery. When the sim arrives you text "ready" to 789678 from your old phone, your old  sim will be deactivated & your new 1 activated shortly after.

Re: Getting a new Micro sim

Its via RM 1st class for sims only (not sure about a new phone).

 

Ignore any Emails saying its via Yodel next day delivery, and the so called tracking number is the VM order number so would not work on Yodel site anyway.
