    Sim card swap help

    Ok here's the deal. I got my s3 and droped down to 2gb. (Which was fine) my sister has a stratosphere ( on the same account ) and she got it during a double data promo. So I'm wondering if I switch sim cards will I keep my same number on my s3 and just have 4gb of data or am I missing something? Its not a issue with her going to 2gb as she's lucky if she uses 100mb.

    If I understand what you are asking... You just want to take her SIM card and put it in your phone to obtain the 4GB of data? This will not work as the amount of data you receive is linked to your phone number/account and not the SIM card. The SIM card just allows your phone to register on the mobile network there is nothing on the card that deals with your monthly data... I have heard some people having luck calling VZW and switching which line gets the data in your case... Not saying it will work but you might get lucky... Have also heard of others calling and the REP just setting them up with that promo as the code was available.....

    Re: Sim card swap help

    Yup. Thats what I was wanting to do. Thanks for your answer. I disnt know that the amout of data was tied to number and not sim. I will call if I see I have issues with getting close to that 2gb. But for now I'm not getting close. Thanks again.
