Once we activate, the network will continually check to connect your SIM to the network.

This connection can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. If your SIM has not connected in a few hours, please contact us with your phone number via email at hello@simsdirect.com.au or Facebook. We will be able to check whether your SIM is active.

What do I need to do before I fly?

Make sure that your phone is unlocked before you fly!

How do I find my number?

You can find your phone number through your phone settings or your contacts.

For Apple:

Settings > Mobile > Mobile Plans > You can find your new UK number (it'll start with +44)

Alternatively:

Phone > Contacts > My Card > Your number will be there

For Samsung/Android:

Settings > About Phone > Under "My Phone Number"

Alternatively:

Contacts App > Tap or name or profile > Your number will be there

Can I call USA or Australia with this SIM?

Unfortunately, this SIM doesn't come with calls/texts to USA or Australian numbers!

We'd highly recommend using data applications like FaceTime, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, iMessages, Viber or Skype to make calls and texts instead. This'll use the 100GB of data you have allocated to you.

Read this neat little article about ways to call home!

How do I check my balance?

You will need to register and create an account with O2 at https://accounts.o2.co.uk/register after you have activated your SIM card. You can follow the registration instructions and your data balance will be available for you.

How do I recharge/top-up?

Unfortunately, this SIM cannot be recharged or topped up.

If you need more data or longer duration, you will need to purchase multiple SIM cards and swap them out as you go.

Can I hotspot/tether from my phone?

Yep, you can hotspot/tether from your phone.
