Problem activating my replacement Nano SIM for Android ????

As suggested by three support,

I called into a CarPhone Warehouse in Jervis Centre and told them i needed a replacement Nano SIM for my new Huawei Pay as you Go android phone.

The new SIM begins 8935302************

BUT the Three Activate my SIM Link says it is the wrong number and should begin

8935305************ ???


What do i do, i cannot call into the Jervis Centre again as it is out of my way, it is not as though i can drop out of work and call into a Three centre, as where i work it is not located to a shopping centre that have Three Outlets.


I do not understand why the replacement SIM I was given does not Activate, why did the staff not check they gave me the correct SIM?I went out of my way to get this via the procedure suggested, i am now annoyed i have wasted a three hour journey for nothing.

Is it possible to get a correct a Trio SIM Posted to me ?

I can still use my original SIM and Phone until i get a replacement

Hi @ujwalpoojary and welcome to 3Community! I can certainly post out a replacement SIM card to you. Can you send a private message with your mobile number, name, address and date of birth please?
