@PS1 

You need to keep trying O2.

There are various numbers in this guide. Try any or all. Press any option

Thanks for your help.

I got straight through on the number ending 4005.

they tried to help but said the number on my old sim was wrong and suggested that I was too old to read it correctly,

they were unable to transfer my cash balance to a new sim.

i am unable to top up my new sim

That's not good. I would wait until O2 are back to running normally and try again to get the money tranferred to your new account.

Your first top up has to be by voucher
