Phone upgrade query (7250i to N8)


[link to this post]
 
I've got an ancient Nokia 7250i on an O2 PAYG tariff and a brand new SIM free N8.

I want to migrate the number to the N8, also on an O2 PAYG tariff.

I can't find anywhere on the O2 website it says how to do this. It's clear it's possible to keep your number, but all the instructions deal with situations where you are either switching providers, or switching between O2 PAYG and monthly tariffs.

I'm doing neither; I just want to upgrade to a better phone!

Can I just transfer the 7250i SIM into the N8? It seems unlikely, as the two phones are years apart - I can't think the same SIM is compatible.

But I can't think of any other reason there aren't any instructions for what I want.

T.

You can just swap the SIM card from the old phone to the new phone

You might find the old SIM will only work in GSM and not 3G though. If so you'll need to contact O2 for a new SIM card.

If both are on o2 just ring them should be free from a mobile and ask them to transfer the number from the old phone to the new one.
