SIM card not working


I upgraded to sim only when contracted expired on 18 July I have no signal not able to make calls or texts.  I am unable to access I’d account due to code being sent to phone which I can not access. There is no contact number to speak to anyone totally frustrated with this company now.

Hi @Patsy p,

We’re sorry to hear about this! When you made your order, did you receive a new SIM card in the post? If so, this will need to be used moving forward.

If not, please let us know and we can check this out further. You can also speak to our Live Chat Team here for further assistance.

Hi ryan

 

i did receive a new SIM card but it is not working , there is no signal I can’t text or call anyone. The new SIM card does not work. I can’t access my account as the code must be sent to old card.

Hello @Alextancos,

 

But have you activated the SIM Card?

Hi @Alextancos, so you’re saying that at some point, the SIM has worked, and now it’s stopped working?

 

It’s just that your first post made it sound as though it was new, and had never been working.

 

Will

Hello @Lmcm,

Try taking out the SIM card and cleaning the contacts on this and re-insert this.

Let us know if this helps?

It may just be some dirt that’s causing this error.

 

If the issuse persists, we can look at sending out a replacement SIM to see if this fixes the issue.

Failing that, it would be a handset fault.

I've received a new SIM card, I've place it to my phone and is not working, no network available. The device is unlocked and works fine with any other card. Also I've never received the welcome email and I don't know the phone number of this SIM. Any help?

Hi @Kennyash,

The SIM card may need activating in that case before we look at a replacement one. Please can you follow the information found on this post to activate it?

Hi @Bowers266, could you please check with the Live Chat team so they can confirm the SIM that’s active on your account?


They’re available between 9am - 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am - 6pm Saturday and Sunday.

Once you land on the page above, scroll down to see the Live Chat section. 

The Live Chat button may not always appear as ‘available’. If so, it may be a matter of waiting, until an agent is available, so please be patient.

Once the agent is available the button appears blue, indicating that an agent is available.

No need to refresh the page, this will happen automatically.

Let us know how you get on.
 

Thank you,

Rory
