SIM Card Replacement

How often do you replace your simcard? Is it a good idea to do it yearly?

Re: SIM Card Replacement

Hello Jlits,

 

  Generally, most people do not need to regularly replace SIMs. Obviously, if you change devices and it requires a different SIM size, you will have to change the SIM.

 

  When LTE was first introduced, the older SIMs did need to be upgraded to LTE-compatible SIMs. Perhaps when 5G becomes available, we might need to switch to 5G-compatible SIMs as well. Otherwise, there is no real reason to replace a SIM card unless the card itself is malfunctioning.

 

Hope this helps :Smiley:

 

Cheers
