The payg sim does not need activating but I was recently sent one that was deactivated.
If you try live chat they will tell you if the sim is good or not http://www.o2.co.uk/contactus

Can you please clarify if kept your sim only deal and got a pay and go data sim for the Tab or did you go for a data sharer deal?

If you haven't Topped up then your sim is not active. If you don't top up you don't get the allowance. what tariff have u gone for?

All payg sims are already "active" as I said above but credit is needed to buy an allowance to allow you to use them on the network.
