Link for transferring numbers to new sim

Just received my new iPhone SE but my sim is too big. They're sending me a new one and the guru on the online chat gave me a link to transfer all my numbers etc but the link has disappeared with the conversation! Can anyone give me the link?

Re: Link for transferring numbers to new sim

Best not to store numbers on a sim card, they should be on the phone and backed up to the cloud or iTunes. 

Any help?

I don't think you can store numbers on the sim in an iPhone can you?
You'll need the swap my sim link though when the new sim arrives http://swapmysim.o2.co.uk/

Make sure your contacts are backed up to your google account and then enter your google account on the iPhone.
Your contacts will automatically sync to new phone then.
