New sim card, new phone but old phone number



I am changing over my old mobile phone to a new iphone 6. I am keeping my same number and have been given the new phone and a new sim card. As the new sim card is smaller than the existing, what procedure do i go about getting the old sim card cancelled and new one active. I currently cant make calls with the new sim card in the new phone. I cant find any information on the procedure I need to follow also.


Any assistance would be greatly appreciated to get my new phone and sim active.

Thanks, Jackson.

Go to telstra.com/activate and follow the onscreen prompts.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it
