Hello there,
I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 and I'm curious as to know if I can take the SIM Card from my S2 and put it into a Brand New S3? I don't want to lose all my contacts and photos and everything else so I need to know if I can do that.

Someone Please help me ASAP!

Thank You and Have a very nice day!

Yes you can use the same sim. However pictures are not saved in the sim. Chances are you contacts are not saved on the sim due to the restrictions of the number of Contacts allowed on a sim

No, the sim card sizes for the S2 and S3 are different , you can cut down the sim to a micro sim size but this is only recommended if you're experienced with cutting sims. I would go with a new koodo micro sim for $10 on postpaid or $20 on prepaid. You can then log into self serve, swap sims under 'change mobile phone'. As for transferring your data, this page describes it pretty well. :)

Good catch. I thought they were the same size. They need to standardize all the sim cards out there
