Any advice on this would be appreciated.
My mobile is a Nokia 1315 with a Virgin PAYG sim that I have used for several years. However, with what’s going on re having to download apps etc just to go the pub I think I am going to have to tackle my Technophobia & get a smart phone.
All I have stored on my phone are my contacts that are stored on the phone & the sim.
I want to keep my existing number as I don’t want the hassle of contacting everyone to tell them I have a new number but if that is the only way i will have to. However, one problem is that the sim card is a micro sim & is too large to fit into a smartphone.
I contacted a local independant phone shop who do lessons (on hold at the moment) & for advice re the sim. They said to contact my provider for a new smaller sim & bring that with the phone in when I am ready.
I am wondering though how do you get the data from the old sim on to the new smaller sim. Also as I understand it I would need a code to transfer the number & this shop doesn’t do Virgin Mobile.
I have been on the Virgin Big Talk tariff for years & pay £15pm & think am paying far too much on this deal compared to what friends with smartphones pay with other providers. Also I have a credit of approx. £40 would I be able to get this back.
Also can anyone recommend an easy to use smartphone.
I know this all sounds a bit thick but the government seems to assume everyone is tech savvy.
