New prepaid mobile different sim - wanting to keep same number

I have purchased a Samsung S7 Edge for my son, replacing his Samsung S6, is there a way you can retain the existing mobile number for the new phone?

Hi george7773,

 

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge takes the same size sim as the Galaxy S6, a nano sim.

 

If you have purchased the S7 outright and not on a contract,

Your son can put his sim card from the S6 straight into the S7 Edge and nothing will change with his account, he'll still have the same number and be on the same plan.
