You gotta get a new SIM card with her number. If you stop by AT&T and get in line with all the people wanting a new phone today, you should be outta there in a few hours. :)

You can cut her micro sim down to nano sim size. I've done it and it's really easy. There are a bunch of YouTube video tutorials. Otherwise, go to your carrier and get a new sim. They will probably give it to her for free.

We thought we switch sims from 5s to 6 and it send a notification not all services are available on that sim. Hotspot was on and FaceTime too.?

I got in no waiting for sim switch
Yeah, you only have to wait in line if you want an iPhone. Otherwise, you can just walk in and get what you need.

Hotspot and FaceTime aren't working with the new SIM?
