Changing mobile SIM card

My 86 year old uncle has just been informed that he is going to have to change his SIM card.  He is in the very vulnerable COVID 19 class and is self isolating.  He lives on his own.  Usually I would drive over to his and do it for him as he has poor eyesight and rheumatoid arthritis in his hands.  

Does this now mean that he is going to lose his mobile connection as there is no way that he will be able to change the sim?

This hardly seems the time for Virgin to be making such a change.

Any ideas anyone.

Re: Changing mobile SIM card

Panick Not. The wording coming with these SIM replacements gives the impression the old SIM will stop working, it actually refers to the new SIM  if it is not fitted in 30 days.

There are loads of problems that can surface with these new cards, especially with older or locked phones.

Whilst this is on keep going as normal with the original SIM

Re: Changing mobile SIM card

Thanks for that. So no panic yet but might be a panic in 30 days. He's got to isolate for over another 2 months though.
