Upgrade ipad - iphone 8

Hi all!

Simple question (I hope!). So I have two ipads and two iphones on contract. One iphone broke. One ipad was due an upgrade. Upgraded the contract for the ipad and ordered a new iphone.

Can I just put the sim of the broken iphone in the new one? And do I need to replace the sim of the ipad which will come with the phone?

Hope I am making sense!

Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Upgrade ipad - iphone 8

You can just swap the phone sim over no problem but the other sim won’t be any good as it’s blank so you will need a data sim for the iPad.
You can have either a contract one or PAYG.

Hmm okay. So the new contract which comes with the new phone is going to be rather useless then? It has more data than the current contract which comes with the broken iphone.

I was hoping I could still use it in the ipad as I obviously won’t have 4G without a sim :-/ And I don’t want to take out yet another contract really.

Sorry, yes you could it for the data. I saw you said upgraded and missed the iPhone was new, apologies.
