So I was wondering if it were possible to switch my phone number back to my old Telecom SIM? I had a Nano SIM in my iPhone 5, but moved to an Xperia Z with a Micro-SIM.

I want to go back to iPhone for a bit as I get bored easily, but rather than buy a new SIM swap, can I just get my number moved back to the old SIM? Its still sitting in the phone from when I last used it, entirely useless at the moment.

Yes technically no reason why not, I've done this on Voda before

Or just get an adapter and do it yourself

Easy, just visit a store or phone them on *123 and they'll process this for you.

Or 0800 800 163 as the mobile folks can do a sim swap back to any sim card or even put a new prepaid number onto an old sim.
