Replacing mobile phone / from nano sim to eSIM

Hello,


I have BT Mobile 1GB 4G plan with my BT Fibre 1 Broadband package.


I'm using an old iPhone SE (BT nano-SIM card) very rarely,
but for compatibility reasons I need to replace it with a new one (SE 2nd edition)
which doesn't use any SIM cards (eSIM). What do I have to do now? I would like to continue using my old phone number on the new one.
Are there any settings to change on the BT website too?


Thank you.

BT don't offer eSims but are you sure it doesn't use normal SIM's? A simple google search seems to advise it takes a nano SIM too

My wife has an iPhone SE2, it definitely takes a Nano Sim. All you will have to do is swap the sim from one to the other.

Thank you, you're right, I thought eSIM had replaced nano SIM. So no problem!

Thank you.

> All you will have to do is swap the sim from one to the other.

Are you sure that there is nothing to change on my BT page?

I think I remember that I had to set up the phone model or some other info...?

But maybe not...

I have swapped BT sims into several iPhones and have not had to do anything it all updates automatically.
