5G Sim Card

[ Edited ]

I was wondering if you could be of help.

 

I currently have Samsung S7 (4G) on a monthly rolling contract on O2.(Device has been paid off long time ago)

 

I have recieved my new 5G phone (S21 Ultra) from Samsung.

 

When i upgrade to a (18 month) sim only contract - will i recieve a new 5G sim & also will i be able to keep my same number?

 

Also, will the transfer from monthly rolling contract to a monthly sim only be a smooth process?

 

Finally, im a bit rubbish with tech - but when i transfer my stuff from old (S7) phone to new (S21 Ultra) shall i have the sim card in old phone or new phone during the transfer of data / contacts etc

Just upgrade in your MyO2 and select 5g as part of the process.

O2 will send you a new sim in the post and upgrade your contract on their system, so it will be active on your old sim within 24 hours.

When you new sim arrives, follow the instructions to do a sim swap Guide: Sim Swap: a mini guide 2017 update
