New handset on it's way. I am a technophobe. So help needed please.
Am using a Samsung atm, getting a Sony with a different (? different size) SIM .

Hmm - but I am keeping same number (so yes, a new SIM is on it's way with new handset) so will both be able to be connected to the Wi Fi at same time ?
Can all contacts and texts (that I need to keep for a few weeks) transfer if not saved to SIM (I REALLY AM A TECHNOPHOBE :-) )
both SIM’s will not be active at the same time (as you correctly point out, you are keeping the same number so your old SIM will deactivate before your new SIM comes live).
However this won't stop you from still being able to use your old phone for connecting to WIFI, you just won’t be able to make calls.
I’ve never used anything like Lee’s suggestion for transferring contacts, I’m sure it’s a great app if it works for you.
I’ve only ever done it the “old fashioned way”:
In your old phone make sure all your contacts are saved to the “phone memory”
Hopefully Virgin are sending you one of these new “3 in 1” SIM’s where you just pop out the size you need.If so, select the size to fit your old phone, insert it then “copy contacts to SIM memory”
Take your new sim back out, make it the correct size for your new phone, put it in, job done.
As far as transferring text messages, I’ve never done that.
Good luckAlexKid :-)
