@Mehitabel Are you able to try the sim you have in another phone? It may still work. If not, you'll have to contact customer service and request a new sim. Guide: Coronavirus Community Help and Support 

As for your sms, if you hadn't backed them up, I believe they are lost.

Thank you - that's helpful. All my data inc. SMS  IS backed up - I hope that I can purchase a new SIM card in an O2 shop ( would take required photographic evidence) ....  I will have a new phone.

Your messages and all other data should be backed up to iCloud so just restore your latest backup to your new phone when you sign in on it.

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.
