updating phone contract

hi guys,

Just updated my phone contract and need to know what number I need to text "ready" to in order to deactivate my old sim card? And by doing this, will it automatically activate my new sim card for my new phone?

thanks

Re: updating phone contract

Hi Sammy-mcsamface,

you need to send the text READY to 789678 from your old phone & SIM.

You should receive a text back saying the request has been successful.

Your old SIM will deactivate and some time after your new SIM will become active.

(Periodically turn your new phone off and on to check for network).

Activation may take upto 24 hours.
