You can put the old sim in. Everything is changed on your account not the sim.

Re: Technical or specialist issues? Ask our Gurus

Hello, my daughter has a few apps from Google playstore which won't work properly. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling playstore updates, deleted and reinstalled the app multiple times, but still not working. It's a game called PKXD - I tried download it to my Huawei and it works fine 🤷🏻‍♀️

Re: Technical or specialist issues? Ask our Gurus

What phone/device is she using?
Does the device need a software update?
Some apps don't like certain display sizes, so will play up but it might also be that the device is old and not able to run the app.

Re: Technical or specialist issues? Ask our Gurus

Hi, I note when I'm at home 4G is on band 20 & band 40. When band 20 is connected I get a good 4G+ connection but the trouble is my phone clings to the weak band 40 signal most of the time which is quite unreliable I assume because of the low signal strength. I just wondered why my phone would do this as it means I get a weak & unreliable band 40 service over a strong & reliable band 20 service. Phone is a Galaxy S10+ on a Refresh contract upgraded through O2 direct.

@Kay13 

You'll need to call customer service to transfer your reward balance.
Numbers here Guide: Coronavirus Community Help and Support 
Or advice from an O2 Guru regarding a way to get through:
If you call 202, when it comes to the reason you are calling stay silent for 15 seconds and you will be taken to the keypad options.
Press 2 for Everything Else
Press 5 for More Options
Press 7 for Anything Else which will put you though to someone.
Say "Upgrade", "Lost/Stolen" or "Fraud" if you have to, to get put through to someone.

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.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

No network nearly 3 weeks now. Can make and receive calls and texts but can't go online. Reported few times. When check for issues it says a phone doesn't work as it should in the area. For 3 weeks now! My husband is on O2 in the same room as I am and didn't encounter ant issues at all. Help please.

Re: Technical or specialist issues? Ask our Gurus

Have you checked that the APN (settings for using data) are correct?
Depending on the phone you are using (Apple or other) you need different settings - both of which are on the link below:

Hey all,

Just a quick heads up that @O2LaurenC is joining us for a while, while our stores remain closed in Scotland, England and NI. We may have a couple more joining over the next few days, who we'll give you a heads up about if that happens.

Feel free to say hello, but you'll see Lauren here and there, popping in on threads where she may be able to offer help or assistance Smiley Happy
