Temporary phone question

PostPosted by Cairdeas » Mon Jan 23, 2017 5:35 pm

Hi guys..my baby is off to HTC Hospital tomorrow. I was thinking about getting a cheap wee PAYG phone to use til he comes back. My question is..can i use my contract sim in it..or just use the sim it comes with? x TIA :heart ( I'm assuming they come with a sim lol)

As long as the phone is an O2 or unlocked phone then yes you can use your contract sim. Rich can advise whether a Tesco or giffgaff phone will be compatible.
I'm leaving now to go find myself....if I arrive before I get back, please ask me to wait!

Is the SIM for your 'baby' a nano sim?

If you buy your cheap and cheerful PAYG from CPW it's guaranteed to be unlocked, the most you're likely to need then is a decent SIM adapter :bringit

All giffgaff phones are unlocked so will work with any sim. You can't use a Tesco phone unless it's unlocked but tbh the quickest way to get one would be CPW which are all unlocked anyway.

Yes it will.
All my sims are nano and I just use adapters if a bigger size is needed.
