Welcome to Vodafone Community
thanks for the rapid response. Years ago, we could do this, but strongly suspect that my phone has an old fashioned SIM and my wife's much newer one, has a microSIM? It is called progress and it is puzzling for us old timers.
My wife finds her phone too heavy to cart around. I would be delighted to use it instead of my much older phone. I would like to keep my number, she would like to keep hers. Both phones are registered to me, ah, these Victorian attitudes of husband knows b3st linger ion in the countryside. No, seriously, it is an accident of purchase and history.
I am almost 100% sure that the SIM cards are not compatible, so it looks as if Ann's suggestion is what I need to go with. The nearest store is only 12 miles away and we do go ther occasionally. Thanks for the help
Vodafone typically provides what is called a multi sim.
This is where for example a nano sim.pishes out if the micro sim as its pre cut. You'll know if that's the case at it would pop out under slight pressure @Hunshelf1

Sorry for my brief reply, I was not at home and as I was replying from my phone, it was difficult at the time to explain the full procedure.
Stores are usually helpful and should put the new SIM in the phone for you and have the number transferred within 30 minutes to the new SIM. However, if you are going to find it difficult to get to a store, there is no reason for Customer Services to be unable to send you a new blank, numberless PAYG SIM, you will then only need to contact Vodafone through the Customer Service channels to complete the SIM swap for your number. If this is an option follow this video here: Multi SIM
The other problem you may well have is the phone will have your Wife's contacts and she will have yours. If you ask the store, they will be able to advise how to transfer the contacts.
Thanks for your response. I will try the store sometime. After 50 plus years of marriage, I doubt if there would be any major differences in the content on our phones!
