Hi there, I am doing an early upgrade in october as my birthday is that month and I was just wondering if I get my new phone can I keep it until my birthday then begin using it and use my old phone till then or does my old phone cut off after 24 hours. Thanks

Re: Upgrade

@MarcDS1997   You can start using the new device when your ready.  Just put your sim in it when you are.  The old device will not get cut off as the sim is what’s important not the device.

Re: Upgrade

Would that mean two bills then?

Hi @MarcDS1997.


Welcome to the community.


You won't get charged for two bills as you will only be using one SIM card, as long as it's an upgrade and not an additional line.
