New 4G sim activation

Hiya,

I've just put my new 4G sim card in but have seen a few posts on the forum about activation problems. Nothing has happened since I put it in and I have no service so can't text 789678. My refresh date (I have a sim only deal) is the 24th, so should I put my old sim back in and wait until then?

Thanks!

Pop the old SIM back in, send the text "READY" to 789678 from the old SIM. When the old SIM deactivates - pop the new one in :-)

Thank you! Will the old sim wait for my refresh date to deactivate?

Re: New 4G sim activation

You can do it now, after you send the text it should not be too long before you get a text back confirming, soon after again the SIM should deactivate.

Put the new SIM in and it should be working, you'll still be on 3g untill your refresh date.
