    Transfer Service to New Phone/New Sim

    Seen threads in the past covering this but can't find one now . Going to be transferring service from an S4 mini on TracPhone VZ to a S6. Different sim card sizes. I have a new unactivated sim for the S6. Is chat the best way to do this? Am going to ask them to give me a balance first so I have a record of it. Is it just giving them the new sim number and esn of the phone? Anything I should be careful of or problems I might have? Also, how long does it usually take for the transfer to be complete?
    Thanks for any help.

    Chat is the way to go. Ask to transfer your phone number and service airtime to the new device and SIM. Transfer should be nearly instantaneous. I think you’ve got all the main points. Folks have said they’ve done this thru the website in auto-mode successfully without chat, but I would personally go the “Chat” route.

    Since you are staying with the same carrier (TF/Verizon), the transfer should be instant.
