    Sim card transfer 10th Oct 17 at 2:36 PM
    I have a Galaxy 3 purchased via a deal with my SIM card provider. I have just been given an Apple iphone. Will it be a problem to transfer the SIM over (other than getting smaller card to fit) (Sorry, silver surfer so not au fait with intricacies of latest technology!)

    You can phone customer services or just go into a network shop if you’re the customer of an actual network and they can supply and help you change the sim over (if you’re unsure about doing it).
