So I'm looking at ordering the Iphone XR to replace my current 6S. However since I've never ordered a phone online (always done it in the Koodoo retail shops) I've some questions as to how this will go. First of all let me start by saying I'm no "techie" and after looking at my questions this will become painfully obvious.
- What does activation entail when buying a phone online? How does one activate ones new phone through this process? Is it done at the time of order or is it as simple as me inserting the sim card when I receive the phone?
- Is there a time gap/delay between service? I know when I order in the shop everything is done seamlessly so that when I walk out of the shop I can use my new phone immediately.
- In addition to buying the XR I also want to change my plan from my current $55 plan to the $45 plan with a visual VM add on. I'm assuming that the current plan is associated with my current sim card so I'm guessing that means that I'll be sent a new sim card with the new phone?
- BTW, what happens to all my data when the new phone is activated? (text conversations, notes, voice memos, photos, files, reminders, voice messages, apps, etc etc etc) How is that transferred to my new phone?
Can I pay my existing /current tab balance at the same time as ordering the new phone and plan?
