Keeping same number with new sim only plan

I am on a sim only plan and wondered whether if I get a new sim only plan would I still be able to keep the same number?

Yes, you can even use the same sim.

Hi @Anonymous Indeed you can keep the same number....I had a sim only plan 18months ago. Took out a new one in January of this year and as the sim was in the same phone, the number was unchanged. (In fact I have kept this same number for the past 8 years...)

You can even just order your new tariff online and then complete a sim swap online if you need a different sized sim card http://swapmysim.o2.co.uk/

No problem at all. Personally I much prefer sim only contracts. Far less hassle ....Smiley Wink
