@Anonymous You either need to call customer service and explain the problem again, or if you have an O2 store nearby you could call in and they will give you another new sim and do the swap for you in store.

You still have the BB bolt on on your account.
Call back to CS and ask them to change it to iPhone then press save on their settings page.
It will activate overnight so you won't get internet access until the morning.

It's what's on their system, not yours - Just call them and say exactly as I've said above.

Make sure they press "save changes" after changing the bolt on from blackberry to iPhone.

This happens far too often. When will staff get the relevant training, it's not hard to understand that changing to an iphone would need the data bolt on changing. Terrible service again.
