Re: sim card in different phone

The sim will work ok in any phone, as long as the phone is unlocked to any network - also check the sim size slot is the same size :-)

Re: sim card in different phone

Hey Handman,

 

I hope you have been keeping well, you're certainly no stranger in the Community Smiley Happy

 

It's a shame to hear that the mobile phone is broken, is there any sign of fixing this?

 

I can see Teabag has mentioned and answer to your question and also, we'd like to know how you got on? If the mobile is locked please let me know and I can help.

 

Thanks and take care.

Ben

Re: sim card in different phone

Hi Handman,

 

Cheers for coming back and letting us know about the phone, I know too well that it's never easy when phones break and it's along the lines of water damage. I am glad that you have been able to find a work around in the meantime and should you want to renew with us, it's certainly a good method to nab a bit of insurance in case life steps in again.

 

I hope that we can help with any queries in the future and please take care.

Ben
