I have a micro everything pack PAYG sim in my phone. I want to use my son's old phone which has a nano data pack sim. Can I port my number to his sim even though it's a data pack? Can I do this by phoning CS? How long will it take for the number to port?

If you go into any EE store they can just provide you with the correct SIM and transfer your account across. Or call 150 and they can do the same, albeit they will charge you.

Thanks. I was goong to go into an EE store to get a new nano data pack sim, which is what I want. But then I thought as there is alreay a nano data pack sim in the phone that I'm about to start using, wouldn't it be easier to just get my number ported to that rather than getting a new sim?

@Coz21: By just getting a replacement SIM for yourself you won't get the benefit of the existing data pack your son has.
Is your son's SIM on contract or PAYG?
Port your no to another network's PAYG & then back to your son's SIM.

Thanks! You're welcome ! Glad I could be of assistance.
If you are not bothered about the data pack, it's best to get a replacement SIM for yourself. Make sure you ask for a replacement SIM not just any old SIM.

I do want to change from an Everything pack to a data pack, but I mean I'm not bothered about losing what is already on the other data pack sim.
What do you mean by asking for a replacement sim? Do I not just ask for a payg data sim and ask for my number to be ported to it?

That's what a replacement SIM is; one with same number and credit It is not ported but programmed in the shop. You can switch to a data pack yourself by texting DATA to 150 and choosing..

Thanks. I tried at one point to change to a data pack but it said it was unavailable with my sim. Anyway, I need a nano sim. Mine is a micro sim, so I will get a new one.

Don't you get anything offered when you text DATA to 150? You should do.
What about http://add-on.ee.co.uk/purchase when not connected to WiFi? What does that offer you?

There is a point. When you get a replacement nano SIM your current pack will carry forward to it as will your no. & credit. That's what a replacement SIM is.

So even if I get the replacement sim now instead of waiting until it's time to top up again, everything will get carried over to the replacement sim?
