@Qball 

You usually get a new sim with a new device, though  your old one will work in it for the time being.

Re: Old SIM on 5G

I spoke with a gentleman from O2 earlier after many attempts and he couldn't give me a direct answer if my old SIM would work or even if the new phone would come with a new SIM. fingers crossed it will work for the time being untill I can get a new up to date SIM ordered if the new phone fails to be supplied with one!

Re: Old SIM on 5G

It will work fine but obviously won't pick up 5g. You can swap later when the mayhem dies down.
