Re: problem with activating new sim

Hi @tigger5 

 

Welcome to the EE Community,

 

Is your old sim is still working and it fits your new phone then you can continue to use your existing sim.

 

if both sims are now not working call 0800 956 3146 from any other phone & a tech advisor will be able to get your new sim up and running.

 

Thanks,

 

David.

Re: problem with activating new sim

Yes the old one still works.  I will put that back in and continue to use it then.  Will it work indefinitely?  And do `I not need to use the new one?

 

 

Thanks so much
