What happens when you take a sim card out of phone

  sxx 18:54 10 Jul 2018

I am keeping my current iphone but getting a new sim card with the same company as i am getting more mobile data etc. When i take my current sim card out and put the new one in will my delete anything on my phone (apps, photos, messages etc). I have been told that nothing will change but maybe the new sim wont contain my old contacts. I am worried about what to do. Will just a new sim card with the same provider change anything?

You need to move any data on the old sim into the phone memory / SD card have a read click here

Your contacts are saved either on the phone or on the sim card. Make sure that they are on the phone. The new sim will not contain your contacts.

What you were told is correct. Iphone saves nothing to the SIM card.

Will just a new sim card with the same provider change anything?

No, it won't so you should stop worrying.

Missed the OP indication of iphone. My mind was thinking Android.

I need some new glasses.
