Yes as long as her sim card is the right size to fit in a phone which it should as your just buying another same model and that phone is either unlocked to all networks or locked to Vodafone Uk it'll work.

You should get the Vodafone set up messages on jnserting the sim card or text WEB to 40127 to set up Internet @Mikael99 

If she's on Pay Monthly then you should just need to update the Apn's from the Payg ones that will come as standard in the Payg phone.

Oh , thanks so much , she has a vodaphone contract n10 but the shop is currently closed.

I thought about buying a new n10 online and putting her sim into it.  It will be one of those that comes with a £10 sim ( that we don't need)

I imagined it would be unlocked for any sim ?  I don't think I could just change the broken screen if I did purchase one ; probably  messier up : )

The phone will be locked to Vodafone Uk.

Yes it'll accept her sim card.

See the edited content I've added to my first reply please in regards to making sure you use the Vodafone Pay Monthly Apn's.

Accidental damage isn't covered under the  Vodafone 24 month warranty so they'd charge for a repair. 

That or look to Home Contents Insurance.

You'd need to weigh up the cost of the phone initially to higher premiums on your insurance the following year or the cost to repair it.

You could buy a screen and try yourself using online tutorials and YouTube videos but doing that would void any remaining warranty and you could introduce further complications and then there's the cost of the parts.

You could give the accompanying sim to someone just to use the credit.

 Yes , she needs a decent case , I will look up the glass protector thanks.

I trained in electrical systems and later electronics around 1980 but when I saw the replacement glass prices and the youtube glass changing channel I  thought I'm going to mess up the whole phone and waste my money : )

 Oh yes ,she will need better case than her flip flop flimsy thing : )

Well , I can't get on the vodaphone site any more in order to buy , silly because I  can get on my' page' to see my data usage on this ( my tablet)

However , I can buy an n10 on Argos ; do you think this would be the same ? ( ie: it will accept her sim instead of using the one that comes with the new phone )

Sorry , another question...

@Mikael99 

Yes as long as the option from argos states it's a Vodafone Payg phone.

Edit > just looked at the Argos website and yes her sim card will be accepted just fine.

I've purchased one thanks  , Ebay.   It says unlocked and new 'A' condition but opened , inboxes I think.

A decent price and 100 percent feedback , if there's problems  I will go to Vodafone (when they open ) with it.

I'm looking for a good case for her and maybe a screen cover , it fell out of her shorts as she got out of the car when I parked at the supermarket on Hayling Island : ) : )

Are you buying from a reseller off eBay ?

If so perhaps provide the link to it and I'll take a look for you @Mikael99 

Sadly accidents happen and even the lowest drop can be catastrophic if it falls at the wrong angle and depends on the type of ground It's hitting !

On my Samsung Note 10+ 5G I use a Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector as this adheres all over the screen via silicone adhesive.

It's however not the cheapest option.

Some Glass Screen Protectors have silicone around the edges that can pop off the phone especially over time or if a case isn't fully compatible with the protector.

Also those types sometimes leave a gap between the Protector and screen causing issues with using the touch screen sometimes.

Tpu plastic ones are fine if your OK with the feel of them.

I use a Samsung Black Leather Case or a Samsung Clear View Cover on my phone.

I prefer a minimal case.

Thanks for that , I used to know how to link from screwfix plc to my work tablet email in order to show "accounts " the plantroom items that I required but I don't know now , (on own tablet ) any longer : )

I've bought it now , so she's happy haha, the seller is "idealphones" its listed as an n10 unlocked to all network.

They have a lot of phones and good feedback , I will be finding out by weds through Friday : )

I will thank you , we just got back from a beach walk and saw your message. 

 

Edit : she said her phone is p.a.y.go but it comes out of the bank as opposed to the old system of taking your card to top up at the newsagent so I'm hopeful it will be ok when the new phone arrives .

As long as the phone is either unlocked to all networks or locked to Vodafone her sim will be accepted by the phone @Mikael99 

The only occasion it wouldn't be accepted is if the phone was locked to another Mobile Network or the phone was imei blocked.

I hope you both enjoyed your walk.  :Smiling:

Take care.

 The phone arrived and I  got it all set up , even her call music choice : )

 I blue toothed her photos , all took an hour and a half .  I'm looking for a heavy duty  phone case for it , a vodaphone smart N10.   All I can find is those silly flip cases so far.

Regards  , Mike.

Good to hear all is well.  :Smiling:

Personally I auto back up my photos to Dropbox which is an online vault as well as backing upto Samsung Cloud.

Some people use Google Drive / Google Photos.

Perhaps take a look at some.

You'll find some really good cases on....

Amazon.

Ebay.

Happy hunting.   :Winking_smiley:

Hi again , yes I will look thanks .  I just ordered a case it's  for am HTC Desire 620 but finding one for a Vodafone N10 is difficult,  it's just a cheap phone I imagine commissioned by Vodafone and every website shows a case for her N10 as a simple "book flip"

That's what she already has , a flip case.

 So , looking for a screen cover will be fun , this has taken me ages ; having to look up the dimensions of each model of phone : )

The HTC phone case has similar dimensions so I ordered it on Ebay , it is the type of case with corner buffers but an open front.

 Still , I am so happy that the phone all worked well when it arrived today.

    Cheers , Mike.
