I live in Sri Lanka and occasionally need to use my UK (postpaid contract) number, but have lost the SIM.
Will the replacement SIM that I am about to request need to be registered on the UK network before I can use it here?
If the answer is "yes", I will need to ask the tenant in my UK home to open the envelope and find a unlocked handset to register it in before they post it to me in Sri Lanka. If not, I will simply asked them to forward the envelope.
Fixed! Go to the fix.
The replacement SIM will need to be activated manually by us once you’ve received it.
Feel free to drop me a private message once you have the SIM and I’ll be happy to arrange this.
