Your SIM card acts like a key to the TELUS network so it’s important to activate it as soon as possible. Avoid calling in or making a trip to the store and swap it online.
What you’ll need:
1. Leave your phone powered on and don’t remove the existing active SIM card yet
2. Log into your online account
3. Click on Plans & Devices along the top ribbon then Device followed by Swap Your SIM Card
4. Enter your new SIM card number
Sample SIM card (where to locate the SIM card number)
5. As an added layer of security, send a verification code to your phone via SMS
Sample verification code SMS
6. Enter your verification code and click on Continue
7. SIM swap complete! Power off your device, Insert the new SIM card, and power it back on.

Can this done for prepaid phones? The screen looks different for prepaid phones.
This appears to be outdated, or impossible if you have a prepaid phone.
Yes, prepaid is an entirely different process.
@NFtoBCAnd what might this process be? Because it is not located anywhere on the Telus websites.
It has been a long time since I used a prepaid account, so I can’t help you there. However there should be an option to change SIM when you login to your account.
@NFtoBCThere sure isn't an option.
