Re: Sim Card Failed

Is this PAYG or Pay Monthly?

Also all SIM cards had an update of late to allow roaming to continue. Most people abroad were contacted by text / email but that may not have got to you. Updates could not happen out of the country.

Have you replied to the PM sent by @Ashleigh_C 

If you are out of the UK then you would need a new SIM card. However, that would have to be sent to a UK address and activated on the home network by someone on your behalf. They would then need to forward it to you

The biggest problem I see is the PAYG is closing down between October and January next year. You will have to discuss the ramifications for you with the team.
