Re: new i phone se new sim, but no service

hi john

when i first put the sim in i wasn't prompted to. i've tried since by going to mobile data and sim settings, then putting in 7890,

but still no service, only now when i switch the phone off and on it now says requires sim code, which i put in but still no service,

though i can access wi fi in house. sorry, but i'm useless with tech

Thanks for coming back to us, vinny2

 

It sounds from what you've replied, the SIM isn't active. 

 

Please follow the SIM activation process and let me know how you get on

Re: new i phone se new sim, but no service

Thanks for coming back to me. As per the link I sent, it sounds like it's on the way through. It can take upto 24 hours but usually a lot quicker.

Hi vinny2, 

Thanks for coming back to us on this one. 

We can attempt to activate the SIM from this end but will need to pass security with you first. 

I have sent you a private message regarding this. Just click on the little plum envelope at the top right hand side of the page to access your inbox.


Thanks,
