iPhone 5 & Nano SIM


[link to this post]
 
Not entirely sure which forum to post this, but, here goes smile

I will be getting an iPhone 5 when they are out. I currently have a contract with Orange and a Samsung Galaxy Note with a mini SIM.

In order to get my number transfered to a Nano SIM, can I just pop into an Orange shop and get it changed over?

Will I be forced onto a new contract, new tarriff, charged anything etc?

I got the Samsung about 4 to 6 months ago and have about 18 months to run on my contract so not interested in taking out a new one or anything, just want my number on the Nano SIM so I can use the iPhone 5.

Any help appreciated.

I asked Vodafone and they said no problem, so Orange should do it too.

Or get a sharp knife and a belt-sander... wink

Well, I don't think I will be crafting myself a new SIM, but I was wondering whether the dodgey phone unlocking guys outside many Tesco stores can do a transfer from one to the other. Will check this weekend.

Orange are fussy with their SIMs, same as Three.

Vodafone are happy to do SIM-swaps whilst you wait but last time I tried to do either of the business phones on the networks above (was Orange, now Three), they both had to send me a new one in the post leaving me without service until I had received it.

Orange for some strange reason make you ring up and order a new sim, certainly did for me going to micro sim, the shops point blank refused to give me one, after that you get activate online, so thats easy.
Voda I know used to just let you pick them up and transfer online.
Biggest problem with Orange is when they get them, I heard a rumour its wasnt going to be until October for the nano sims.

Probably the same reason as Three.

The SIMs have to be matched to your account. Three issue a SIM based on 4 different HLRs, and the one you get depends on what your account is set to.

I suspect Vodafone do this differently.
