You can either call o2 and request a free microsim or you can walk into an o2 store and pick one up then you can do the swap yourself online using swapmysim but it can take upto 24 hours the address is www.o2.co.uk/swapmysim

No you would still have to do the sim swop online or over the phone.

Re: Change To Micro Sim

They say it can take upto 24hrs but usually it's alot quicker. I did a SIM swop in Kidderminster store on Sat morning and it was working before I put it in my phone, came up with a signal immediately.....
