SIMM help request

I know very little about mobiles so this may be a very dumb question!

Currently I have a Vodaphone branded phone without a contract as I pay monthly for my calls, data, texts etc.

If I buy another phone can I just move the simm card? if it is not the same size can I expect Vodaphone to give me another card - what about any data I have on it?

Any help will be gratefully received

Who do you pay money to for your calls?

I would ask them the question. Ignore the fact that the phone is Vodafone branded unless they are also your service provider.

You may need to check the settings on your current phone to see whether data is stored on the phone or on the sim. Some info about the make/model of your phone might enable people on here to give you sharper advice.

If the phone is unlocked to any network provider then yes, some phones can also be unlocked to any provider either by a phone shop you see on every high street or by asking the company the phone was locked to for a PUC code (which also costs)

if it is not the same size can I expect Vodaphone to give me another card - what about any data I have on it?

Yes you can ask voda for a sim that supports your phone (normal, slim or micro for iPhones I believe) dependent on what phone you have most data bar contacts and messages are stored on an internal memory which if your phone is compatible should be able to be linked to a PC and saved, either using a program to recognise the phone (mostly older phones samsung galaxy S3 era) or if a newer phone then simply plugging in the data cable to the PC you should be able to delve through files and find data you want to keep like pics etc

Any help will be gratefully received
Hope this helps a bit.

Thanks for this.

My current phone is a Vodaphone Smart Ultra 6 and is locked to vodaphone. Does this affect the Simm. My calls, data etc are paid to Vodaphone but the phone is paid for and not included in my contract.

The phone I intend to buy is a Motorola Moto G6.

Both phones appear to use nano Simms so would appear to be interchangeable but this is outside my limited knowledge bank!

If the Moto G6 is unlocked or Vodafone then the Sim will be okay. Size would be the only issue but Vodafone can change it in store for you free of charge (well they did for me!). I had a Vodafone Sim contract for many years and just used any unlocked handset with it.
