I need to switch to a different sized SIM. Can I keep my number?

Yes, you can keep your number when you move to a new SIM card. If you purchase a new mobile phone through our online shop, call 777 or visit a Vodafone store once you receive your phone and new SIM card to swap your mobile number onto your new SIM.

Once you complete your SIM swap, your old SIM will be deactivated, so you won’t be able to use it again. Make sure you have your mobile phone and your new SIM before you request your mobile number to be transferred.
