Successful migration from Nexus 5x to Moto G5 Plus


My 5x died, so I grabbed a G5 Plus from another source. After reading a few posts on the subject, I was hopeful that my SIM would move transparently to my new phone. I am happy to report that this was the case. It only took a few minutes for RW to register the new phone.

I did lose my “daily data usage” history, which I assume is stored on the phone. No biggie!

Happy camper!


I had a similar experience when my nexus 5x died in August. I was able to transfer the SIM card to a Moto G5Plus and be up and running in minutes. Since it was still under warranty, LG fixed my Nexus 5x and I was able to easily transfer the SIM and service back to it two weeks later.
