At work, I elect to provide my own phone (Samsung GS2) but use my employer-provided SIM card in it, working on 029-xxxx. The GS2 takes a standard size SIM.

If I bought a Galaxy Note 2, which takes a micro-SIM, would it be possible to get the employer-provided SIM re-issued by Vodafone as a micro?

I would think so... You could always cut it down to fit - plenty of kits to do it available cheap on Trademe.

A mobile number is not on the SIM to start with mobile number is on network side so all that is required is a SIM swap to a Micro SIM on your mobile number which takes approx 30 seconds

Thanks jr - did not know that. Pardon my continuing ignorance on this - how is the SIM swap actually achieved? Can I do it myself once I have the new device, or do I go to a Voda shop, or does my employer (who owns the contract) have to do it (or be involved) ....?
