New Sim card not arrived and wrong tracking number - now being billed
I ordered a SIM only deal on the 16th of June. I received an email confirming the order and that I would receive the SIM on the 16th (seemed improbable) by virgin mobile's delivery partner yodel. I was provided with a link to track the progress of the order, but the link doesn't work and the tracking number (P04771166) is invalid as far as yodel are concerned.
Today I received an email from virgin mobile informing me that I will be billed on the 30th of this month for the amount set up in the direct debit.
Why do I have to pay for a service that I am not receiving? My contract with virgin should not start until the SIM is activated.
After googling the problem, it seems like this has been going on for over a year with other customer,s and virgin haven't rectified the issue. They just seem to want to patch the problems as they come in, without getting to the root cause.
Can someone please advise me in any aspect of this?

Thanks for your information. I have tried the tracking number on the RM website to no avail. I will give it until after the post arrives tomorrow in case it is with RM. If not I will see how I can escalate this and cancel the direct debit before it comes out.
