Re: New SIM works great, but also received a "Dummy" SIM that does nothing???
Replying on this as I also received a copy of the letter and dummy sim (Monday 7th). After the New SIM failed to work in my existing phone and was invalid in the previous I have been reluctant to insert the dummy SIM into either my new feature phone (purchased to replace the previous phones that were essentially just paperweights post New-SIM), or either of the previous phones which failed with the New SIM.
As the phone it's for is only a feature phone with limited internet connectivity; is this "unlocking data roaming" actually required? If it is, would the dummy sim and unlock codes work on any phone I insert it into? (As the letter says there is no network connectivity, it cannot be contacting to anything outside of the phone to turn on the data roaming - so is this some sort of "magic unlock" SIM that works in everything and anything?) Previously roaming for calls/ SMS/ MMS would have been turned on for my number so what additional magic does this SIM/ unlock do?
And what are the consequences of me doing nothing?
Had an update from Katie, and we've been advised the Dummy SIM is nothing to worry about 🙂
With all due respect though, this does not answer my initial question. Could you please tell me, does this mean my phone will or will not work abroad now? I followed the instructions, but my phone did not ask me to type in the long numerical code supplied?
