trading phones


My boyfriend needs to get a new phone, the S3, I have the S2. If he gets the S3 on his account, can he then put his old S2 sim card into my S2 and take over my plan in my name and I take the S3 in his name and transfer all my stuff onto the new sim card?

Yes, all he needs to do is insert your SIM card in the S3, and his in the S2. No need to do anything else 🙂 There isn't even any need to transfer plans, unless you want to!
the s3 has a smaller sim card and mine will not fit in it. And what about the IMIE number on the phone, will we have to update that?

you can purchase a micro sim for $10 then log into self serve>mobile phone>change mobile phone>register the new sim and done! Now you can insert the micro sim into the s3. As for the IMEI that has nothing to do with swapping your sim, that is simply for identifying the device.

Would he have to buy the S3 without activating it? he will still want to use his old s2 sim card and not use the new s3 at all
