Re: new sim card

They normally activate up to 24-48 hours. Otherwise any random could use a sim they found in the post.

If its not working by tomorrow try calling CS quoting the sim serial number(back of SIM card) they'll advise you what to do next.

Have you restarted the phone?

Argh right sorry I presumed it was mailedSmiley Sad (my bad)

Hmm it is possible they've naffed it up. Worst case is the sims faulty.

I presume your phone recognises the sim? No error messages?

Re: new sim card

It's possible the bars haven't been removed if you reported your original sim lost. Speak to CS in the morning.

Re: new sim card

Jonsie theory sounds most likely.

You'll have to let us know how you get on.

Re: new sim card

Probably they did not remove, because I have reported that my sim card was lost, so might be, its still blocked.. I will let you know tomorrow what's going on..

Thank you for your help guys and goodnight Smiley Wink
