Note: please refer to an updated version of this guide in our How-to Guides section, here.
This is just a quick help guide for people who want help on doing s sim swap.
Do I Need To Swap my Sim
If its your first contract with O2 then you will be provided with a new sim card & number with your shiny new phone. The sim packs now come with 3 sims so you can pick the correct sim card to fit your device. They are a standard sim, a micro sim & lastly the common nano sim used in most phones.
You will need to perform a sim swap most times if you are upgrading to a new tariff. This is to have an updated network such as 4G available when it is rolled out in your area. You can set up your new sim card to have 4G at www.o2.co.uk/4G/setup
How Do You Do The Sim Swap
You can visit your local O2 shop & they will do it for you.
You can do it yourself in 2 different ways
1. Go online to http://swapmysim.o2.co.uk & follow the instructions
2. Text the word SWAP to 20220 from your O2 phone. You will get step by step instructions via text message.
You will know when is done because your old sim will not work but your new one will be up & running. If you do it in store you are more likely to be up & running with your new SIM card before you even leave the shop. The process could take up to 24 hours to complete & keep turning your phone on & off until the new SIM card is active.
