IPhone 5 and 5s sim swop

Hi, I just grabbed a 5s on a second account.  I currently have the 5.  both are locked to Rogers.  The new 5s has a sim with a nnew number applied.  I will be receiving the phone next week.  I did this to help out my Nease who is 18 and is just starting out and does not have credit yet.  thus, I will be swopping my current 5 for the 5s.  do I need to activate the 5s with the new sim card before I swop out the two cards, or, can I just  swop out the two cards then have the new card in the 5 and go ahead and activate?  I hope this makes sense? Also, If I factory reset my 5 then install the new sim, can we activate the second account on the 5.  All advice and help mucho appreciaddo...DrummingMan

Hello DrummingMan



It kinda makes sense so bare with me if i make a mistake. So you have a iPhone 5 and receiving a iPhone 5S correct? You want to keep your sim card but insert your current sim in the 5S and give the iPhone 5 to your niece with the new sim? That should work. All you need to do is insert the sim card to the phone and should work just fine! 🙂

OK so if the new sim already has the number then there will be no need to activate by calling Rogers is that correct?  I can just swop sims's and we are both off to the races right?  Why don't I think things can be that easy man LOL!  Cheers...DrummingMan

Hello DrummingMan

Yes that is correct! The sim card will be already activated for your new line! All you need to do is swop sims and you guys are good to go! 🙂
