If you're swapping your SIM from Orange pay as you go to EE, it's a simple process to change.

Once you have your new 4G SIM follow these steps

  1. Put your new EE SIM into your phone and it will automatically activate
  2. You'll know you're connected when you see a coverage sign and 'EE' displayed on your phone. This could take up to 30 minutes, but will usually be much faster
  3. You're good to go.

It's so simple you won't even get an activation text message from us. You'll get some network updates as text messages for Voicemail and some new settings.

While you're waiting for the EE sign on your phone, you can still make calls and use text and data. But you won't be able to receive calls or texts on your new number until the changeover is complete.
