Will Android add the contacts of the new SIM card to my Google Account? What else could happen?

  • If your contacts are in your Google account, just sync your Google account. – user202027 Jan 18 '19 at 17:34
  • The Moto 5GS by default does not support saving contacts to the SIM, any contacts on the SIM are displayed in the contact list but unless you use a third party application you cannot save or move contacts to the SIM card. – acejavelin Jan 18 '19 at 20:01

You'd probably have a different phone number, and possibly a different contract/data plan for your device. If your device is SIM-locked, you might have no service at all (i.e. no calls, SMS, internet) if the SIM card is from the "wrong" provider.

Apart of that, nothing would happen: contacts on the SIM card are not synchronized with any account.
