Transfer number to new nano sim card

Hi - we have bought our son a new phone for xmas which requires a nano sim.  His current phone is a standard sim (with a virgin contract).

 

I have ordered a new nano sim from the Virgin mobile website - how would I go about transferring the number from his old sim to the new sim.  We would like it all set up and ready for him for xmas morning.

 

Thanks

Re: Transfer number to new nano sim card

Hi, the easiest way is to request a replacement nano sim, BUT..tell them you want to transfer the existing number over to the nano sim, NOT just order a completely new nano sim.

That way, the new sim comes ready to activate with the old number, (you just need to phone VM to activate the nano sim, which de-activates the old sim)

If you didn't do it this way, the new sim will come with a completely different number, which you will have to get swapped for the existing one

Best to go down the first route, phone, tell them that you just want to swap sim sizes, but keep the original number, it's far easier, and less painful to do..

 

Hope this helps..
