How to Activate the sim card?
This UK sim card will automatically activate based on the Arrival Date (Travel Date) / Activation Date provided at the time of purchase. Your 28 day plan will begin from the arrival date you provide. Should you wish to change this date after your purchase, please contact us atleast 3 days prior to your noted arrival date, so we can change the commencement date of your 28 day service. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to do this.
How do I find out my phone number?
You will receive a UK phone number which will be printed on the front of the sim card packaging. The phone number begins with 07.
Calling within the UK
The included 1000 minutes and 2000 texts is only to standard UK landline numbers (for the UK starting 01, 02, 03), mobiles within the UK. Calls to other numbers including Premium rate, Business rate numbers and non-uk numbers are not included.
In order to make international phone calls from the UK, you will need to add credit to the sim card. You can only add credit whilst you are in the UK, at O2 stores, supermarkets, petrol stations and convenience stores. Unfortunately, you are unable to top-up online via the O2 website, as it requires a UK debit/credit card that is linked to a UK residential address.
Alternatively, we recommend that you use data based apps such as Whatsapp, Viber, Skype, etc to make international phone calls rather than adding credit for international calls.
If you are travelling with another person it is important to have the ability to contact one another at any time especially in an emergency. We highly advise that you both purchase a sim card so you can keep in touch.
International SIM cards require your phone to be unlocked, if you are unsure, please contact your service provider for more details.
Plans are subject to change without notice by the carrier but we will do our best to inform you of any changes as soon as they arise.
How to recharge?
The UK Prepaid SIM Card plan will last 28 Days from activation. If you are staying longer than 28 days, you will need to recharge the sim. As mentioned above, if you wish to add credit or recharge the sim you can only do this whilst you are in the UK, at O2 stores, supermarkets, petrol stations and convenience stores. Unfortunately, you are unable to top-up online via the O2 website, as it requires a UK debit/credit card that is linked to a UK residential address.
However, we advise that you visit an O2 store when recharging, as this will ensure that the recharge has been done correctly and you have received the most appropriate plan.
Alternatively, as another option if you are travelling for longer than 28 days, you can purchase additional sim cards based on the duration of your travels. If you are travelling for 56 days you can purchase 2 separate sim cards, and then swap them over at the end of each 28 day period.
