Question about transferring SIM card

I currently have a Samsung Galaxy A20 with a Republic SIM card (and I’m a customer). If I purchase a Galaxy A51, can I just transfer my SIM card to that phone?

-Thanks

Hi @zbernie,

Hi @zbernie,

Please let us know if you were able to determine whether the SIM card in your A20 is GSM (and can be moved), or CDMA, (requiring a new SIM card). Or are you getting the new phone from our online store and won’t need to move the SIM card at all?

I’ll be purchasing a refurbished unlocked Samsung A51.

I’ll be purchasing a refurbished unlocked Samsung A51. Do I just move the SIM card from my old phone to the new one? They are inexpensive so it’s not a big deal if I have to purchase one.

Hi @zbernie, @southpaw had some answers to your questions. :slight_smile:

Here is how to tell if you have a GSM or CDMA SIM:

Hi @zbernie,

With the knowledge that the SIM card in your current phone is GSM, then we now know that yes, you can move that SIM card to your new phone.
