If it is just a sim swap, anywhere between 5 mins to 24hours (usually doesn't take that long though). If you are porting, it usually takes place th enext working day between 11am and 4pm.

 

Hope this helps

Thanks for getting back so fast!

No problem at all Smiley Happy

 

The old number will be lost when it is replaced by the number you are porting and your old sim will become inactive.

 

If you wanted a spare sim on pay as you go, you are probably better off to just get a new one.

Hi, how are you planning on doing the swap?

 

If you can get to a vodafone store they will put your old number on your new sim while you wait, its normally complete in 15 to 20 minutes.

hi, just to clarify, you have a PAYG number that you want to put onto a new sim (new size for new phone?) and then keep using that number in your new phone?

Am sure a shop would be able to do that too but not certain.
