Nokia 1 and old spare SIM card

  daffodiltulip 18:43 29 Oct 2018

Hi. I've bought a new unlocked Nokia 1 smart phone. I also have a couple of old SIM cards that I think I've used before. Can I just put one in the phone and use it after topping up or do I have to get a special SIM card for unlocked phones?

If it is unlocked you can use any sim in it and provided you have credit on that account it should work

Depends just how old the SIM card is. If its not been used for a long time it may well have been cancelled. You can only try it to see if it works.

They were so old they were too big! What sort of sim only deal should I look out for that is as cheap as possible and that can be used for any number of months without having to top up monthly - I won't be using it much.

I went into Vodafone and they had a £5 SIM card that seems suitable.
