Do you already have a SIM card you are using. Can you punch it out for the nano size?

@shmantrik   You'll have to use the chat bubble at the page bottom right corner to get a ticket for help with that. The moderators will have to help you with that process.

@shmantrik 

SIM's come in 3 adaptable sizes.

You should be able to transfer your current Public Mobile SIM into your new phone with the 'extra' or 'less' adapter pieces the SIM comes with.

Re: SIM Swap

Check the SIM you have. Most are tricut and likely you already have. It is hard to see but try to gently push out the nano.

@esjliv @JK8   The OP was asking how to do a sim card swap not how to modify the current sim card. Just saying 😂

@Quigley that could have been understood in more than one way.

I agree with @esjliv on this. The OP has a SIM card who may not know that it will work with the new phone. The OP may think that each SIM card is tied to each phone. The OP has stressed Nano size so may not know that you can punch out.

You need to locate the sim card tray on your old phone. It will be retangular with a tiny dot/hole on one side. Unless its a phone with a removable battery then the sim card may be located under the battery. Remove the sim card if it is a tricut then you should be able to gently snap it out if the micro frame.

 

Now locate the sim tray on the new phone use the sim card pin that came with your phone to pop open the slot. Take the sim card from the old phone and put it in the new phone. If you cannot change the sim card size to fit the new phone then you will have to contact the moderators to do a new sim swap with the brand new sim card.
