Sim not activating

Hi

I’ve recently got a virgin media oomph package, including a SIM card. The SIM card has not activated and doesn’t seem to be waiting, the website is a nightmare, as every problem I seem to have isn’t an option on there. I can’t ring as my SIM card hasn’t activated so I do not have access to my phone without WiFi. 
please can someone help activate my sim?

 

thanks 
Luke

Re: Sim not activating

Thank you for your response. Just to confirm, do you get any error codes with this sim? Also, have you tried reinserting the sim and rebooting the device to see if the issue persists? 

thanks,

Re: Sim not activating

i have just recieved a replacement sim card today, so hopefully this sorts my issue out. i contacted a member of the team and apparently the sim was never activated within the 30days, altho it was inserted into my phone since the day it arrived.

so again it shows sim not provisioned for voice.. but apparently that will correct itself in 24hrs if not mistaken.. i confirm if it has or not after this time frame. thanks for the reply back tho
