Iphone sim activation

I've upgraded my partners phone from Android to iphone 5c today and set it all up. The new sim is the same number but it isn't activated yet. Is there something that I need to be doing to activate it? Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Iphone sim activation

Hi Craig1975,

 

You need to send the text "READY" to 789678 from the old phone & SIM.

You should receive a text back saying the request has been successful.

 

The old SIM will deactivate and some time after the new SIM will become active.

(Periodically turn the new iPhone off and on to check for network).

 

Occasionally activation may take upto 24 hours.
