Can you re activate an old sim?

I got an iPhone 5 2day & have transferred to my nano sim.

My friend wants 2 buy my 4s but doesn't have a micro sim, is it possible for him 2 move his current number across 2 my old micro sim currently in my old 4s using the online sim swap?

Or is the SIM card now done for good?

It's an contract sim & he's trying 2 put a payg number on it.

Any help appreciated.

You should be able too can't see any reason why not. Have you tried the swap site? Worst it can do really is say that sim is invalid. I'm sure any store would still have stock of them

Agreed but if they're feeling as I am today the local O2 store is feeling a few million miles awaySmiley Happy

Re: Can you re activate an old sim?

Thanks for the replies guys. The reason I ask is my nearest O2 store is over 100 miles away & our local Tesco don't sell them, so for easy & quickness sake, using my old sim would be a good solution.

I'm at work until 10 2night so we will try when I get home, worst case scenario it doesn't work & we need 2 order 1 online.

Cheers

Re: Can you re activate an old sim?

Doesnt look like it Smiley Frustrated It all went through ok on the site but it hasnt actually gone through on the phone & its been nearly 2 hours. I know it says it can take 24 hours but its never been more than 15 minutes for me before. Oh well hes just gonna have to wait for the sim he ordered to come home.
