Re: Duplicate Sim ???

O2 have said there's no chance of introducing a duplicate sim ever.

Re: Duplicate Sim ???

@Anonymous There is no 'duplicate sim issue', as you put it. As said in the previous post, you cannot have the same number on two sims. As far as I'm aware, it's the same policy for all networks.

We were asking O2 to consider it a while back but they came back with a refusal.

O2-DE allow it so the argument was that it would be easy to implement here too.

Re: Duplicate Sim ???

duplicate sim would be amazing... seems weird that it isn’t standard practice let alone a “wish for item”
