Hi Sheer

Yes you need to buy a new SIM.

For the information depends, if you configured a backup on Google’s cloud if you have a android or in icloud if you have an apple, the information will be backuped.

If for data you speak about the LTE data that will be in your account.

You can buy the SIM online or from a couche tard

If there is a partipicating Couche-Tard near you, you can get a Fizz SIM card for free (until January 4 2021 while supplies last): https://fizz.ca/en/couche-tard-sim

You just need to install the Couche-Tard app, enter your email and wait until you are at the cash and ready to pay before using the electronic coupon. The Fizz SIM card will be free!

This the procedure to replace it

My plans → Manage → Change SIM card

Hi Sheer,
For a limited time, you can get a free Fizz SIM card at a participating Couche-Tard with the Couche-Tard app. Call first to see if they have in store.

Hi Sheer

Your data is kept on your phone and online if you have made this backup. Can you still power on the phone? If so, you can transfer all contents of your phone to the new one even without a SIM card.

You can order a replacement SIM online or pick one up from Couche-Tard

BTW Couche-Tard has a promo until January 4th 2021. If you install their app and use the coupon, you can get your SIM card for free.

Once you have your SIM card, log onto your account to change your SIM card (My plans > Manage > Change SIM card).

Sheer,
Sorry, if your sim card is broken;
you need to buy another sim card.
If you are living in the great area of Montreal, you can buy one to the Depanneur: Couche-tard.
Please, call before to go.
When you have the new Fizz sim card:
