I just got an iphone today and switched over to it from my old pay and go. The guy in the 02 shop set it up and switched the number over for me and suchlike. I can make and recieve calls and recieve texts, but not send them. He said it won't take long for this to happen. It's been 6 hours now, is this normal?

Text messaging is the last part of the provisioning of your simcard.
See quote from O2's website on this:

Why can't I send texts since my mobile number transfer?

Sometimes it takes up to 24 hours to send texts after your mobile number has been transferred. Don't worry about this, it's normal.
If you've waited over 24 hours, check your message centre number, usually stored under 'message settings' in your phone.
Pay & Go message center number +447802092035
Pay Monthly message centre number +447802000332


Hope this helps
