Using a different phone on a phone plan


Hi Yes Crowd,


I'm on an old phone plan that I got 2 years ago and my phone is starting to become unbearable. I want to buy a new phone outright and use the sim card I have on my current phone plan.

Can I use the Sim Card I have now and just swap phones?





Re: Using a different phone on a phone plan


Yes, providing the new phone uses the same size SIM card or smaller and you old phone SIM is the press out kind quick which allows you to press or a smaller sizes SIM. Otherwise it is easy to get a replacement SIM card from an Optus shop and activate that on the old plan.

I would also have a look at the new phone plans as you might get a better deal.
