Switching Phones

How do I switch phones? I broke my Samsung 5mini and want to switch it with a Nexus5 that I have, but I don't have a SIM card, so I dont know how to switch it over.

@tiablo Both phones uses a Micro SIM so you just need to take out the SIM from the S5 Mini and put it in the Nexus 5. 

 

If your S5 Mini is the LTE version then it has NFC so when you setup the Nexus 5 you can transfer data between the phones.

 

Also make sure the Nexus 5 have the correct APN settings you can get that here.

Hi @tiablo & welcome to the Community. Smiley

 

Do you already have the phone? 

 

For the SIM card, you'll need to get a new one. You can then activate it on Fido.ca, or you can contact us on Facebook or Twitter and we'll activate it for you. Smiley

 

Cheers!
