Hi @Anonymous As this is a replacement sim for one that's been stolen you will need to contact O2 customer services https://www.o2.co.uk/contactus


As for your insurance you will need to speak to them yourself . This is not customer services..it's a community forum

Re: Activate sim

Just a guess here, but I'm thinking they didn't!
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
