Apple Watch 5 - Reconnection after repair

Guys, i have just received my watch back from o2 after they have fixed the smashed screen (top marks to o2 there).  I am however, getting slightly frustrated at not being able to reconnect/attach my mobile data plan with the phone, and not being able to talk to anyone (although understanding current situation).


When i sent my watch back i was asked to delete the eSIM profile and unpair the watch.  I did this.  Now when i tried to set up the watch again i get the following message "oops, something went wrong.  Try again and if the problem continues call 202 for free from your o2 mobile, quoting reference code 04".


Interestingly i know my watch was backed up befre i sent it away but that back up isn't showing.


Annoyingly, i managed to get on a live chat with someone who suggested I reset network settings, and that hasn't worked and then cut the chat off so i lost that access.  


Can anyone help....please - as now i have a plan i am paying for but can't use it as i wanted to.

Sounds like the watch was replaced rather than repaired.

Error 04 is an existing watch on the account so will need removing by customer services Guide: Coronavirus Community Help and Support 

The best number to get through seems to be
