    This may sound strange posting on an Audi foum, but I was wondering if there was someone in the know.

    Me and my brother have gone half's and bought mum a new mobile for Christmas (the one she has now is years old!)
    It suddenly dawned on me (after buying the phone) that it takes a micro-SIM card.

    I bought the new phone on the same network - so there shouldn't be any issues with locking.

    My question is, will Orange transfer her number to a micro-SIM if she is on PAYG? - She has had the same number and SIM card since 1998!

    I have tried calling Orange / EE but cant get any tech support without knowing my mums security codes.etc

    Cheers!

    Yes. Ring customer services and tell them you want to port/ move her number over. It normally takes 24 hours, but as it's the same network could be faster.

    I've cut sims down before, it's not too difficult with a new and sharp pair of scissors, there are templates online for marking up the sim.
