Just got my new phone woohoo :)

Going to pickup the SIM card soon,

Just wondering, if i get the SIM card, swap numbers with my existing CDMA, will the $10 on the SIM card be put onto my old number? Or would I need to ring 123 and do the old transfer credit to number job?




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

If you are going into a Telecom Dealership or Telecom Retail Store, then they can swap all your contacts over onto the SIM, all you credit will be transfered over as well :)

I don't think they will swap the number from the sim to cdma phone.  The process will be to swap the cdma number and credit to the sim card (for free) and then reconnect your cdma phone to a new number (not entirely sure but from memory I think it has no credit, however there is no charge for that either).
So instead of spending $30 to get $10 credit you will spend nothing for no credit.

Yeah too true, that's all good, I just want a new number to put on my old phone :)
For Trademe purposes....although, i guess i could sell it with my vodafone sim and without a telecom CDMA number attached :)
