Phone upgrade


I ordered a new phone yesterday as I was due an upgrade. It came today with a new sim. I put the new sim in the new phone and there is no data on it and I can't receive texts and phonecards, these still go through to my old sim on my old phone. I just wondered if there is a period of time I have to wait before this is transfered, or whether I have to activate something myself?

Hi @Aidanbooth 

You can use your old sim.

Otherwise follow this advice
