Sorry but a sim can only be used on the same account. You can only reactivate the sim again on your account and change your number, but you cant keep your current number and use the old sim on a new number since that would be a new account

A sim card is a one time use only unless it is resumed on the same account :/

SIM cards are one use only. Unfortunately you will have to buy a new one but generally pretty cheap
