Simplicity SIMs are supposed to come in the normal post, so you need to check when they posted it and if it's been more than a week, then report it as lost (or nicked?) in the post so they can disable it and send you a new one.

One time they screwed up with mine. They sent the simplicity SIM by recorded/courier delivery, and no card was left, so effectively I had no idea it was waiting for me to collect it from the post office! After I told them off on the phone, they confirmed that this was a mistake as simplicity SIMs aren't supposed to be sent on recorded, but only on standard post.

Of course the Post Office don't consider anything as 'lost' till 14 WORKING days have past.

Let O2 know though as you don't want call charges if it has been stolen.

I ordered mine on Tuesday and was told it would be with me the following day, when I use track my order it shows it was posted on the Tuesday by first class post, it's now Friday and still no sim card.

Sims are sent by Royal Mail which isn't great. You should have received it already, however, it may have been lost (don't worry it isn't an active sim as you need to call them to activate a SIM card anyway) or the credit check may have been refused.
Call them, if it went through without a credit check problem, they can always send you a new sim card.

On the upgrading section I know that they are sent through Royal Mail and are never activated I wasn't aware the new connections were different. The 3G is abit poor, they are improving it though, I've recently started getting a bit of 3G which I never used to, but it is unreliable at the minute.
