Transferring new iPhone 8 data plan to iPhone 12

I have iPhone 8 with

free standing data plan. I have just bought iPhone 12 and declined data plan. Will the new phone come with sim and can I just use my existing plan or is it transferred on the sim. Obviously my iPhone 8 does not have the esim

Hi @1010sam you simply put the sim from your old phone into the new one and that will continue your current plan. A spare sim may be sent but you can ignore that.

Hi. Thanks for that. Unfortunately my iPhone 8 sim won't be compatible with the eSIM built into the new iPhone. Wondering whether I can just transfer data from one to the other

Hi @1010sam  the iPhone 12 still has a physical sim slot so your old sim will work.

Do you have an actual physical sim as you just insert that into the iphone 12 from your iphone 8.

 

As for transferring data have a read of this:
