Register Sim-Card

I was wondering if anyone could help me with registering my sim-card. Its a new sim-card and every time I turn my phone on it says "unregistered sim". I've tried to ring the 02 number however it always says "call failed". I'm sure there is an easy solution but can anyone help?

Register Sim-Card

sounds like the sim might be old (over 6 months old and never used)so may be disconnected now
