I took advantage of the Black Friday sale and up graded to a Google Pixel 7 Pro, from a Galaxy S10.
The new phone arrived yesterday, and I’m on my own in setting up the new phone.
I use Visible for phone and network.
Vivible is a VZ service, a virtual phone network, similar to Consumer Cellular, Mint Mobile, etc.
Cheap cost, but NO or very limited customer service.
Hence, I’m on my own setting up the new phone.
I’ve watched a few YouTubes on the process, but still have questions. I will watch a few more, and rewatch some that seem most useful. Still, I’m not sure what is vitally important, that I’m just not aware of that importance.
First, the Pixel is capable of using either an e-SIM or a physical SIM.
Is an e-SIM better, worse, or no difference than the SIM?
Can I simply switch the physical SIM from the S10 to the Pixel?
Is there a reason to get a “new” SIM?
If I get an e-SIM (or even a new SIM) for the Pixel, and leave the SIM in the S10, will the S10 still connect to the network? Or will the old SIM be canceled by the network?
A YouTube suggested it’s possible to install a physical SIM, and an e-SIM.
What would be the purpose?
Any suggestions for the SIM?
Transferring “stuff/apps/photos/contacts/textSMS/etc” from the s10 to the Pixel seems fairly straight forward. Just plug a patch cord into the USB-C plug and follow the prompts.
I’m familiar with “settings”, naming my phone, wallpaper, moving/grouping apps, security access, etc.
Is there any specific thing I should do or be aware of?
Ultimately, I may sell the S10.
Any comments for wiping sensitive data?
Or otherwise preparing the S10 for leaving my possession?
