How to update your SIM card

What you’ll need

 

  • Your old SIM card number
  • Your new SIM card number
  • Your Fido My Account login information

 

Note: Before you change your SIM card, make sure to save your contacts on your phone, since you won’t be able to access them from your old SIM card once you switch to the new card. Check your phone’s user guide (found on the manufacturer’s website) for information on how to transfer the contents of your current SIM card to your phone.
