New, 3g sim card, can I keep my old number?

I recently bought an LG Gw520, which as far as I understand has 3g, however my sim card doesn't.
The sim that came with the phone, however, does. Is it possible for me to use the new sim and keep my old number?

Yes just call customer service and they will arrange the number change for you. If your old number is on a different network you will need to ask that network for your PAC code.

Nah, my old sim card is an o2 one.
Will I have to set up my unlimited web + text tarriff again or will that come through with it?
