Re: keeping my old number

@Mick1204 You only need to swap your number to a new sim if it's because you're either in a 5G area and want to avail yourself of that, or your old sim doesn't fit your new phone. If neither of those criteria applies, just put your old sim in your new phone and you're good to go.
