When to activate SIM

Hi

I ordered the Virgin Oomph package 2 weeks ago and broadband is due to be installed on 8 March.  The package includes a Virgin sim card, and this has been sent to me.  However my account doesn't start until the installation on 8 March.  In the meantime I can't seem to register a My Media account and I haven't got a Virgin phone to contact customer services.

I've no idea whether I should wait until 8 March to activate the Virgin sim, or activate it now.  If I do activate it now, I don't know what the cost will be.  If I don't activate it now, I don't know if the sim will run out of time due to no activation within 30 days.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks

Martin

Hi Keypads, 

Thanks for using the forums to get this issue with your Oomph services looked into, I am sorry if this has been causing some frustration. I would be more than happy to look into this for you.

I'm going to need to gather some specific information from you in order to help further, so I'll send you a PM now.

Speak soon!

Re: When to activate SIM

Hi Keypads, 

Thanks for giving me that information in our PM, I have had a look at the SIM and can see it is now active on our side. 

So if you're ready, you can pop it in your phone today and start using the allowances 🙂

You won't be charged anything more for using it before your install date, the bill will come out as normal via your media services.

Please let me know if you run into any further issues once you pop it in your handset.

Thanks, 

Megan_L
