Hi @Anonymous

Is this anything to do with your thread from yesterday when you stated you had lost your sim? https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/Pay-Monthly/Sim/m-p/1103950#M144406

Did you collect the new sim instore and did O2 activate it for you?

Have you rebooted the phone?

I am only asking these questions as you didn't return to your previous thread to respond to answers given.

Either way, if you are having issues you may have to contact customer services as the new sim may not have been activated properly.

Messages are usually the last to come online after a number port or sim swap. A full 24 hours can be needed sometimes.
The other possibility is that it’s the wrong type of sim being used, ie a PAYG sim for a contract or vice versa.

If you reported it lost then your number may have a bar on it which will need customer service to remove for you

In which case it would be nothing working, not just messages.
