I have a PAYG sim that i have put into a dongle. I have no other O2 devices. When i try to add the dongle to my O2,it requires a text message from the number attached to the sim.

Obviously not going to happen. Any ideas??

Can you put the sim into a phone to receive the text @Neilg677 ?

Be aware that unless the sim is specifically a data sim you might get issues using it in a dongle...

@Neilg677 

Your sim is capable of receiving sms messages and you can login the the dongles control panel to see them.

Full instructions should be with your device or Goggle for the info relating to the exact device you have.

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.
