SIM card not activating

I am in China and have finally managed to get the new SIM card for my phone after you changed to the new system (or whatever it was that meant you had to change all the SIM cards by last April).

I put it in my phone and 30 hours later it is still saying "SIM activating... please wait"

Could you please tell me how to get it to work?

Thanks

Mary

Re: SIM card not activating

If it wasn't activated in the UK you are out of luck. The only way they will activate is if they are connected to the home network. That is a technical thing common to all SIM cards.
