I used to own an iPhone 4s but later upgraded to a 5 and bought a nano sim and switched my account from the old aim to the new sim. Sadly my iPhone 5 is not working anymore but my plan is still going, is it possible for me to bring my account back over to my first sim? (4s)

Hi Carmen,

You can only use a SIM card again if it was inactive for less than 90 days. After that, you will need to buy a new one (5$) and move your account to that one.

Ok thank you! If I get a new phone instead will I be able to move the 5 simcard to the new phone? (A 5s or 6)

If you get a iPhone 5S or 6, then yes. If you use your old 4S again, then no since it's a different size
