Free Pay & Go iPad sim card... do they actually exist?

Ok so I got my iPad in early June with a free 3 sim... and got online to order a free O2 card almost straight away. Several weeks later nothing so I called into an O2 store. "Sorry we don't have any in stock, have you tried online?". So I tried again and again nothing arrived so I tried a 3rd time, this time with a different email address in case there was a problem with the original one.
So, still nothing comes and I email customer support via the main O2 website. Nearly a week later I've had no response to that either!
I was going to call to get one but there doesn't seem to be a number specifically for obtaining sim cards and don't want to spend hours going around the houses which, given my experience so far, I suspect might happen.
So can anybody tell me, do these free P&G sim cards for the iPad actually exist and if so how can I actually get one. I have a specific need for O2 since one of the places that I need to use it isn't covered well by the other networks - otherwise I'd just continue to tether to my iPhone on Vodafone.

Ring your 02 stores to see if they have stock and also check with carfone warehouse too.
Its weird your having issues getting the microsim and I feel your frustration.
I dont have an ipad so i assume they are different from iphone microsims then ?

I've actually visited my 2 local stores (all the much harder since I'm currently struggling with a broken leg) and they keep referring me back to the website.
They are the same physical microsim as the iPhone 4 but apparently the iPhone ones won't work with the iPad as the tariff differs.
I'm just finding it really frustrating that O2 seem to be making it so hard to actually get hold of one of these things, especially since the website says they'll send you 2 cards - the second one for a friend. Don't O2 want my money???

Did you order the SIM card through this page? -

I'm not aware of any issues with stock but I can look into it.

Yes I did... on 3 different occasions using 2 different email addresses. Hence why I'm pulling my hair out over this!

Ok.
If you'd like to PM me your details and the different email addresses you used to order I'll see if I can check what's going on for you.
