Found 7th Dec 2014
Hi and thank you in advance for any helpful comments, I've been told you can order an o2 sim to receive activation code for priorities but I'm not receiving any incoming calls or texts and o2 have said I need to top up to activate can anyone help who has managed to use the sim purely for the app, I have an unlocked contract phone and pay a ridiculous amount so really don't want to spend on something i won't really get use out of for its main purpose?

hi, thank you but that's where I get stuck- the instructions ask for your O2 number so you can get a code text to the number and you need that code to activate the app

i found that i had to use my contract one as the free payg sim did not have any credit. you could just load the minimum amount of credit to get the activation code?

i don't know if you could load £1 say?

Hiya I really feel like I'm on a mission to get the app! The minimum top up is £10 and I have asked on here if anyone has a code they don't use

have you used a sim that was never topped up with credit? I've got wifi connected so that's fine but I'm not getting anywhere because I'm using a new pay as you go sim that I haven't applied credit to and some people have said they've accessed app but I don't know how?!!?

That's weird, all I did was enter the number on my SIM and it sent me the text. Maybe try another free O2 SIM?

send a text message with the word NUMBER to 2020. its free to send. see if u get a response. you normally woyld if the sim is preactivated

i think this is the problem. when i got my free sim from o2 it was not activated and in order to get it activated you had to add credit to it. this is the problem that the OP is getting which i can't see being resolved unless she adds the minimum credit of £10 to activate it.
