Changing sim cards

I currently have an iPhone se 2020 on the v1 network. Is there another type of SIM card I could use? My issue is I would like to use the phone internationally and V1 only does that for Canada and Mexico. I will be getting an Esim for data and will generally be using WiFi for calls but I would like to get texts in particular to my number for things like two factor authorization.

 

Another question, that I suspect I’m going to have call about is that when I attempt to activate international roaming it just doesn’t “stick”. My understanding is that I would have to do that if I wanted to use the phone in Canada for example. The option is there, the pop up comes up and I can change and it says “saving” but it doesn’t appear to.

 

Thanks

  • Hi Jennifer ! If you are wanting to internationally roam in countries aside from Mexico and Canada, you will need to use an X3 SIM card on the T mobile network, our live support representatives can assist you in determining your account and device eligibility to switch over. I would also recommend reaching out to our support regarding being unable to turn on roaming.

  • So someone is sending me an X3 card (thank you Jennifer) but now I’m wondering about how I go about swapping it. Well obviously not the actual swap, but how to a move my number over to this new sim on the same  phone. I’ve obviously moved numbers to entirely different phones so do I do it like that? Or is there another process?

  • Please reach out to our live support representatives in order to get the port submit to move your number to the new SIM card.

  • I’m assuming I would be better calling than using the chat line?
