Re: [Pilot] Certified Pre-Owned Phones Now Available at Public (how to activate a phone)

@yen  You still have your old sim from old phone? It is likely 3 hole punch. Which means if sim card is to big slightly push on the card and it will pop out to the smaller nano SIM.

 

Put in new phone and you're good to go. Use the new sim to give to someone else as it's not activated.

 

If you want to use the new sim. Log into your account and click change sim card.

The new SIM card that came with the phone is your new SPARE. As said put your EXISTING/CURRENTLY ACTIVATED  SIM in your new phone.

It is what I thought to change one chip to the new phone. But it seems I cannot punch the old one to get a nano. Just wondering if I can cut it with a scissor? I am scared I damage it.

If you cannot punch out follow @Jb456 instructions and go into self service and choose Change Sim Card.

@yen  don't start cutting things to much of a hassle. You have a new sim card. Click change sim card on your account.

Throw old one away. Put new on in the phone. keep the pieces of new one incase you need to go to a bigger sim in future.

 

easy peasy 🙂
