Re: New sim

Hi @Shelly71 

Check you have the SIM in correctly and was the iPhone 5 used on O2 previously? 

It's also possible that you have a faulty SIM card but you won't be able to get a replacement until the O2 shop reopens after Christmas on Thursday.

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)
