Last time I ported a phone number (2 degrees to skinny) I had serious issues with receiving authentication sms messages from a couple of websites including Facebook. I assume that since skinny and skinny direct use the same network back-end going from skinny to skinny direct shouldn't be a problem?

I don't even think you have to swap SIMs do you?

No so I assume that the only true difference is the branding. I'm just checking because last time it was a massive pain in the backside.

I have moved from Skinny to Skinny Direct. Basically all that happens is they send you a verification text with a code, which you then type in the website. The switch happens instantly and my Auth texts for FB etc continued working fine.
