Re: Upgrade sim Not working

Hi Davidbartz,

 

put your new one in now that you've sent the "READY" text from your old one.
As your old one will now deactivate prior to your new one becoming live.

Then with your new SIM in. Keep turning your phone off and on periodically to check for network

Re: Upgrade sim Not working

Hi Davidbartz,

you need to send the text READY to 789678 from your old phone & SIM.
(Is this what you did?)

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

Your old SIM will deactivate and some time after your new SIM will become active.

(Periodically turn your new phone off and on to check for network).

Activation may take upto 24 hours.

Hi Davidbartz,

that'll be OK then Smiley Happy

It's usually within an hour but in some cases activation can take upto 24 hours.

Periodically turn your new phone off and on to check for network.
