    What to do with extra sim card

    Bought a new Paygo phone and am using my old sim and number.

    What can I do with the Sim card that came with it?

    Are new sims better than my 5 year old one?

    If I activate it and get a new number and then just park it as a spare phone without putting money in it will it just expire, if so can it be reactivated even years from now?

    You may as well just hang on to it. Only costs $10 in store but SIM cards do have a life span and you will most likely need a new one eventually.

    Agreed, it's good for a spare. Keep it in case you need it.

    If you do activate it, eventually that account will be dormant and be shut down. And that SIM will then become useless, so it's better to just keep it around unused.

    Is it UICC, or an older sim?

    No clue about UICC but I think I will just hold it as a spare in case I need it in the future.
