Hi. 29 days after receiving my SIM I finally got round to activating it. I texted READY from the old one and got a confirmation text, saying activation could take 24 hours. I restarted that old phone and it said SIM registration failed, so I assumed that meant the activation had gone through. However, the iPhone 6S with the new SIM says "No SIM". Does this mean that SIM is not activated yet? I expect the old one to go off only when the new SIM was ready. Now I have no usable phone for a while. Should I just have more patience and the problem will sort itself out?
Welcome to the community and thanks for posting. I'm very sorry to hear your new SIM card didn't go active quick enough.
It can take up to 24 hours for the new SIM card to go active but I do agree with you, the changeover process should have been a lot smoother so I'm hoping you weren't left without a phone for too long. How are things looking now?
If you continue to have issues then please let me know and I'll happily help further.
