How to activate new phone

I'm on the $2 a day plan with old flipphone. I have to upgrade to new phone now that they are phasing out 3g.

I have two phones to choose from.  They both have slots for small sim cards. My old phone has a rather large sim card that won't fit.  What is the process for activating my new phone and keeping my old number?

Also, in the future, if I switch to a phone with same size sim card, Do I just switch the card to the new phone and it now works with my number?

Yes, you just move the SIM card if the same size. Since you want to switch to a phone with a different size SIM card, you will need a new SIM card. Go to an ATT store for a correct size replacement SIM card and have them activate it with your number.

Any chance I can hook the old phone to a computer and copy contacts and texts, and move them to new phone?  Or perhaps bluetooth?

Not likely. It depends on the phone but old flip phones generally don’t have that capability.
