    Hi all,
    I just bought a new(refurbished) s6 unlocked off att. I've had my att plan for 10years now and it's a pretty generous plan. I'm concerned about getting a new sim card.
    A) Does a new sim card "break" my existing plan?
    B) Does a new sim card give me a new phone number?
    C) How will att bill me from here on in? I've got unlimited data and my minutes are pretty high - I don't want to give that up.

    many thanks,

    Welcome to Android Central! If you ask AT&T for a new nano-SIM to fit your S6, then it will be for the same number and same account, and the micro-SIM in the S5 will be deactivated. If you still wanted to swap between using the S5 and S6, you could get an adapter that makes a nano-SIM fit into a micro-SIM slot/holder.

    Of course, you could always ask AT&T for a new SIM for a brand new line, but you'd have to pay for this additional line. If you don't need another line, then just ask for a replacement SIM for the new phone.

    Just order a sim cutter on amazon for 6 bucks. It's a cheap way to not have to mess with your carrier and you can buy adapters if you need to go back to a micro sim

    It shouldn't change your plan, but you should just call AT&T and ask them.

    SIM cutters are one solution, but you have to be careful, because it's possible to mess up the cut, which means you'll still have to get a new SIM card from AT&T anyway. I've also read posts from people who cut their SIM, and found that the cut SIM doesn't fit that well into an adapter.
