my current RW phone is stupid. it keeps acting possessed. i have bought a new phone, not from RW. how do i get this one to work. i tried switching SIM cards, but it says i need a different SIM card. how do i go about doing this?

This will depend on what the old phone is
If ”old phone” is a legacy phone you will need to purchase a BYOD SIM card

Switching phones by swapping SIM cards is a GSM feature
