Very simple, Tracey, just insert the SIM card of your old phone into the new one. If it's a different size SIM, you may need to buy one and activate it in self service.

Your account, number and all other information will be exactly the same :)

Log in to pre-paid self-serve. Click on the Phone services tab. This will open a new page;  select the Change SIM Card tab. On the next screen, enter the number of the new SIM card that you will use in the new phone and the deed is done.

You may have to reboot the new phone for the change to take effect.
