Have you checked the service status https://status.o2.co.uk for issues in your local area.
Also it could be your sim card is faulty, have you tried it in another phone at all?
If not then you speak to customer services, if it is costing you "thousands" then I assume you have a business contract with o2 so you need to call 0800 977 7337 from another phone and they can assist.
Thanks for the response. This isn't helpful, the other phone I have is business and this is still not activated. Its extremely frustrating. The sim worked odd, yet since I raised this with 02, it's not worked at all.
The business sim is still not activated. Without working phones I've came to this site not to be told to call a number but to resolve it with 02 digitally... As the problem is causing me alot of stress, I appreciate you dont know all the details, but asking me to call is the exact issue I am having as stated. Both sims are displaying emergency call only.
What is the actual solution for this problem, and what is the best steps forward? Chiming in saying that you don't have account access to 02 means we are just wasting everyone's time here.
If both sims are saying emergency calls only there are a few things it could be:
To test this, you could try the sims in another phone that you know to work or another sim that you know to work in the phone which would show if the sim or the phone is the issue.
If the sim is the problem then you need a new one - either by contacting o2 customer services or by visiting an o2 store (with photo ID).
If the phone is the issue then you can either ask o2 to repair it or contact the manufacturer.
