Anything in here help, @Joe17? Guide: Text Message Tips (not sent or received) 

If not, reach out to O2 on social media, links below this message, or phone numbers in here if you rather try calling: Guide: Coronavirus Community Help and Support 

Good luck!

 

Edited to add: let HMRC know as well, as per this answer in HMRC help pages:

Hi @Joe17 

This is an ongoing issue with O2 and they need to sort it out.

You may have a zero spend cap applied to your account and need to speak to customer services

All numbers are in this guide Guide: Coronavirus Community Help and Support 

or via social media

 Facebook ( https://o2uk.co/O2CFB) , Twitter ( https://o2uk.co/O2CTW) or Instagram ( https://o2uk.co/O2CIG), hopefully they should be able to help.

@Joe17 

Some have had success by turning off wifi before expecting the code to come through.

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.
Please select the post that helped you best and mark as the solution. This helps other members in resolving their issues faster. Thank you.

Hi 

Yes MI5's advice to turn off the WIFI worked. I had phoned O2 on Sunday morning and spoke to someone who didn't know who HMRC were! Eventually he said he had lifted a block and to wait 24hours, which I did and it still didn't work. Fortunately by then MI5's solution came in
