Signal Vault, I started to think I might need some protection for my new chipped based credit cards.

I’d like to get your feedback on these new technologies.
I recently went from an old-fashioned flip phone to a new smart phone. Since I installed a new sim card in the new smart phone and the old sim card is still in the old flip-phone, can I still use both phones and will they work correctly? I’d like to use my flip phone for when I garden and need a smaller phone for my pocket, but then use my smart phone for the rest of the day.
I have some concerns that my new Moto G might have a low Bluetooth signal.
Windows 10 Question
There are times when I don’t want my Windows 10 laptop to be updating itself.
1. I’m on a cruise boat and the internet is just barely usable. If the connection is slow I don’t want it to be trying to download updates when I just want to get my email. Also, the last river cruise I was on specifically told us to turn off Windows Updates since it would swamp the cellular network that they use for the boats internet connection.
2. I’m using my phone as a HotSpot and don’t want my laptop to be downloading large updates when I’m on my cellular network.
I’ve heard that you can’t stop updates – is that right or is there a way to do this in Win 10?
What are the security concerns when using your phone as a Hot Spot?
I have a new Moto G 3rd Gen and one of the things I don’t like is that I don’t see Missed Phone Calls on my Notifications.
Is there a way to add that in or do I need an app for this?
I do get a notification for Voice Mail, but not for missed phone calls.

How do I move contacts from a SIM card to a PC?
I’ve got an older flip phone with no SD card and think there ought to be a SIM card reader that you could just plug into a PC. The ones on Amazon seem cheap, but don’t have good reviews. I just bought the Sim card reader below and will see how it does.
Note – it doesn’t work – don’t waste your money.
Make sure all your contacts are in Gmail and then it will import all those contacts to your phone when you add that account.

Can T-Mobile move contacts from a regular sim card to a micro-sim card? Can they move my contacts to a SD card?
Answer – yes. Although it’s easier to just have all your Contacts in Google Mail and then when you add that account to the phone, it will import all the contacts.
