Hi. I have had my sim only plan for over a year now. (10GB, 5000mins Unlimited texts).
I have just bought a new sim free iPhone which is 5G compatible. Will my sim work as 5G on this phone or do I need to request a new sim or tariff?
I believe that you get 5G on any Pay Monthly plan or a SIM-only plan, in my case I get 5GB on my SIM-only deal. Officially VM supports these 5G phones but some others do work as well.
Huawei P40 Pro, Huawei P40 lite, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, Oppo Find X2, Oppo Find X2 Neo, Oppo Reno4 Pro, Oppo Find X2 Lite, Samsung S21, Samsung S21 Ultra, Samsung S21 Plus, Samsung Note 20 Ultra, Samsung S20FE 5G, Sony Xperia 5 II, Samsung A32 5G, Samsung A42 5G, Samsung A52 5G, Samsung S20, Samsung S20 Plus and Samsung S20 Ultra.
If you go on a 5G tariff your signal will move from EE to Vodafone sooner than later. I would advise against signing up for 12 months unless you check the signal out first.
If you are happy with 5GB then there are some good 30 day plans out there with 5G without tying you in.
