    I opened the phone. Battery. Removed battery. Opened little hinged door.

    SIM card with O2 and four 4 digit numbers, a 3 digit number and PP4 on
    it.

    Will they need these numbers?

    Now all I need is the O2 phone number...

    The network to which the SIM belongs.

    Not all of them are clearly marked. I have an original Cellnet one dating
    back 6 years or more. It is totally free of all markings apart from a
    serial number (the clued-up might be able to tell the network from it, but
    I can't). I only know it's Cellnet (O2 now) as I bought it originally. If
    I were to give it to someone I doubt they'd easily know, and as we all
    know numbers can be ported so that's no clue either.

    Which isn't always obvious (see my other post).

    Thank you. I've just spent 23 minutes on the O2 Helpline and given up.
    Bastards.

    Now that you know the network, why not buy an O2 SIM?

    It is an O2 SIM card. I want to know how to register it.

    Ah! Thank you, Gaz. I fear it has been de-activated by O2.

    That means back in the bloody queue again!

    Why do they de-activate them? They've already got my money, paid in
    advance. It's in their interest to let me not use it, then they don't
    have to provide a service. I only want it for emergencies, it's always
    off and nobody knows my number.

    Regards
