SIM Swap

How can I move my Skinny number/account to a new Skinny SIM? 

You can transfer your Skinny number/account to a new Skinny SIM by performing a SIM Swap once logged into the Dashboard section.

You will need to buy a new Skinny SIM from your local convenience store, petrol station or shop from our online store

This is handy if you need to switch from a regular SIM to a micro or nano SIM. You can also follow this process to swap a lost Skinny number/account to a new Skinny SIM.

IMPORTANT: Do not activate the new Skinny SIM you want to swap the existing number/account onto.
