Moving from iPhone 5 to Galaxy S8+

In the next few days, I am going to be getting a S8+ to replace my 2nd hand iphone 5.

 

However, I have never used an android device before and am curious as to how I would go about moving my sim card and number to the new phone and what the process would be and have not been able to find any information online.

 

Both the iphone and new galaxy are unlocked phones.

 

Thank you for your taking the time to read.

Both take a nano sim so just remove it from one phone and place it in the other.

Yes, good point, call CS 202 or 4445 (contract or PAYG) and ask to be put onto standard data.
