    O2 sim card question

    Just ordered a Sim card from O2 to take advantage of their special offer (mainly the early concert ticketing offers), I won't be using the sim to make calls or send texts. Will i need to use the sim once in a while or does it stay active without using it? TIA

    I've just done the same for the o2 priority app.

    I put the sim in a spare phone to receive the activation text. When you have the code from this text you simply place into the app.

    I'm not convinced the app actively checks the sim number you use (after all, if it did, you'd think it checks to see if it's even in the phone which it wasn't in my case).

    Worst case is you order a free sim again in the future

    I think the sim is free, but you have to top it up (PAYG)

    I moved from o2 to id and the priority app still works on my phone.

    It will work for a few months then you just order a new one.

    For me I just ordered a payg sim online for free. I DIDN'T have to top it up. Placed in secondary phone. Loaded app on my main phone, asked for code to be texted to the o2 sim, entered code on the app and boom, done.

    I'm not convinced the app will check the o2 sim stays valid. But we'll see. The fact I didn't have to top up means I'm happy to repeat the process every couple of months for the benefits (the Monday lunch for a £ is enough to warrant it Tbh).

    I'm using a O2 sim and haven't topped it up. Works fine.

    Good to know, I thought it would cost me a top up, thanks
