SIM order from abroad

Hi,

I am French but I will be living in the UK as an Erasmus student from October on. I need to purchase a SIM card now but I am not moving until next month. The problem is that I am asked to provide a phone number - which I cannot because the French number I gave was considered incorrect - and I cannot provide a correct postcode either since mine is French. Does anyone know what I can do?

Thanks in advance,

Coralie

Re: SIM order from abroad

Hi Coralie,

 

I presume that you are referring to a Virgin Mobile "Pay As You Go" SIM?

(For a "Pay Monthly" SIM you would need a UK bank account and credit history).

Unfortunately Virgin Mobile will not post a SIM abroad but once you arrive in the UK they are readily available from most retailers. As are SIM's from other networks.

Re: SIM order from abroad

Hi,

Thank you for your answer. The thing is that I need a phone number now for registration reasons. I will check out if other operators offer that possibility. Still, thanks for trying to help me.
