Switching phone contract from personal to company

Morning all
Just wondering if some of you have experience of switching from a personal contract to a limited company contract for their mobile phones.
I have currently 2 limited co clients who won't switch because their personal contracts include children's phones or other package and they are worried they will lose out. Other reason I suspect is that they can't be bothered or are too busy to actually discuss it with their phone companies.
I have explained the benefit of having the company paying for the mobile phone as at the moment they can only get reimbursed the business calls without incurring a taxable benefit.
I have looked on the Vodafone website but couldn't really find any useful information.
I would like to show the clients it could be a seamless process (is it?) and would be grateful for any practical advice.
Thank you
MN

    Thanks
    Of course it is ultimately their choice, but as I have no practical experience of this I don't know how easy or not it is to switch. If I had more facts it could also help me advise future clients.

    On a side note I do not pursue the clients regarding this they are the ones complaining that they can't put the whole cost through the business.

    All you need to do is call and give Ltd Company bank account details ,takes 2 minutes terms of contract do not change .I transferred my Vodaphone contract recently . I believe that applies to all mobile companies . However I am not sure whither the Childrens part is tax deductible expense so might need a journal for their cost .
    The above applies to pensions as well ,if you want an existing personal Pension to be a Company pension simply change the payment source to Limited Company .
