Re: sim

You need to call customer service and sk them to remove the block they put on the account when you reported the phone stolen. Once removed you need to keep rebooting the phone every 30 minutes. For obvious reasons they wouldn't send an active sim in the post.

@anders

Sorry, you didnt make it clear in your first post that your device had been stolen. So now we know that, please follow @jonsie's advice above and ask for the bar to be removed....

Best of luck
